La migration hautement qualifiée de, à travers et vers le Sénégal

Authors Adrien DIOH
Description
Plusieurs facteurs tant historique, politique, géographique qu’économique font que le Sénégal constitue, depuis l’accession à l’indépendance, à la fois un pays d’émigration, d’immigration et de transit. Mais alors qu’il est communément admis que, lorsqu’elle est bien encadrée, la migration des personnes hautement qualifiées peut être mutuellement bénéfique aux pays de départ et aux pays d’accueil, elle n’a pas fait l’objet d’une réglementation spécifique. La raison réside, probablement, dans l’absence d’une politique migratoire nationale attestée, entre autres, par la profusion d’institutions intervenant en la matière. Certains facteurs comme l’appartenance à la Communauté Economique des Etats de l’Afrique de l’Ouest (CEDEAO) qui érige un principe de liberté de circulation et d’établissement des citoyens de cette région et la consécration, en droit social sénégalais, d’un principe de non discrimination entre travailleurs étrangers et travailleurs autochtones peuvent être perçues, a priori, comme favorisant l’immigration. En revanche, la signature avec des pays tiers de conventions bilatérales en matière d’emploi et de main d’œuvre combinée à la suppression, depuis 1981, de l’autorisation préalable de sortie du territoire national constituent autant d’éléments susceptibles d’impacter positivement sur l’émigration. Il convient toutefois de ne pas surestimer la portée de ces différents facteurs puisque non seulement le principe de non discrimination souffre quelques exceptions mais en plus les conventions bilatérales en matière de main d’œuvre ne s’adossent pas toujours sur des conventions de sécurité sociale. Several reasons – historical, political, geographical and economic – explain why Senegal has been a country of emigration, of immigration and of transit since its independence. While highly-skilled migration, when it is well managed, can be beneficial for the country of origin as well as the host country, it has not been regulated in Senegal. This may be because of the lack of a real national migratory policy or, indeed, because of the profusion of competent institutions. Some features may be seen as encouraging immigration: being part of the ECOWAS (Economic Community Of West African States) which advocates for citizens’ freedom of movement and residence in this region; and non-discrimination between national and foreign workers. On the other hand, some elements may encourage emigration: bilateral labour agreements with third countries; and the suppression in 1981 of the exit visa for citizens. It is important, however, not to overestimate these factors, since the principle of non discrimination is not always respected, and the bilateral agreements are not always linked to social security conventions.

Labor migration and the moral sustainability of the Norwegian welfare state

Principal investigator Stein Kuhnle (Project Leader)
Description
The 2004 enlargement of the European Union, with the ensuing movements of Accession 8 migrants, has and will continue to have a profound impact on migration patterns in Norway. Both the demographic and geographic characteristics of immigrants are shifting , and much of the hostility directed towards the traditional "asylum seekers" now turns towards the new East European migrants. The aim of the research project Labour Migration and the Moral Sustainability of the Norwegian Welfare State is to examine cent ral aspects of this new immigration: 1) The first part of the project, Labour immigration and the welfare state, examines various aspects of the welfare state in light of the new immigration patterns in Norway. Firstly, we study the extent to which these new patterns threaten the continued support of the welfare state in general and Norwegian welfare state in particular, and how they affect and shape preferences on how to make moral trade-offs in the design of welfare polices. Secondly, we study the extent to which labor migration to Norway is labour induced by conducting a qualitative case study of how poles living as labor migrants in Norway make use of the welfare system. Thirdly, we study how the Norwegian and Polish press portray the migration from Poland to Norway, e.g. the extent to which it accurately reflects reality. 2) The second part of the project, Segregation, economic dependence, and gender equalization, examines the importance of social network denominators among the new labor migrants i n the value creating system in Norway. Furthermore, the project will calculate how much of the value creation in Norway that are reaped by foreign owners and employees in sectors and regions, as a proxy on how dependent value creation in Norway is on work force migration. Finally, the gender composition of the Norwegian and foreign work force will be compared to see how much, if at all, migration reverses the gender equalization of Norwegian industries.

A cybersecurity situational awareness and information sharing solution for local public administrations based on advanced big data analysis

Description
Cybersecurity is one of today's most challenging security problems for commercial companies, NGOs, governmental institutions as well as individuals. Reaching beyond the technology focused boundaries of classical information technology (IT) security, cybersecurity includes organizational and behavioural aspects of IT systems and also needs to comply to the currently actively developing legal and regulatory framework for cybersecurity. For example, the European Union recently passed the Network and Information Security (NIS) directive that obliges member states to get in line with the EU strategy. While large corporations might have the resources to follow those developments and bring their IT infrastructure and services in line with the requirements, the burden for smaller organizations like local public administration will be substantial and the required resources might not be available. New and innovative solutions that will help local public administration to ease the burden of being in line with cybersecurity requirements are needed. For example, cooperation and coordination is one of the major aspects of the NIS and EU cybersecurity strategy. An enabling technology for cooperation and coordination is cyber situational awareness and information sharing of cyber incidents. In this project we propose a cybersecurity situational awareness solution for local public administrations that, based on an analysis of the context provides automatic incident detection and visualization, and enables information exchange with relevant national and EU level NIS authorities like CERTs. Advanced features like system self-healing based on the situational awareness technologies, and multi-lingual semantics support to account for language barriers in the EU context, are part of the solution.

Multi-language text summarization

Description
In our daily life, we are submerged by huge amounts of text, coming from different sources such as emails, news, reports, and so on. The availability of unprecedented volumes of data represents both a challenge and an opportunity. On one hand, it can lead to information overload, a phenomenon that limits one’s capacity to understand an issue and act in the presence of too much information. On the other hand, the effective harnessing of this information has undeniable economical potential. Furthermore, In the European context, special needs to be put to multilingualism to guarantee global access to high quality information. The objective of this application is to develop ML-TEXTSUM, a system for efficient and accurate multi-lingual text summarization. That is, given as input a text document, the system will output a summary of the document in the same or in a different language. Building on recent breakouts in machine learning and natural language processing, I propose a novel architecture for ML-TEXTSUM that will be able to produce high quality summaries while at same time remain modular enough so that new languages can be added with minimal effort. The availability of such system shall allow citizens, regardless of their language, to better handle the information overload and to gain access to critically distilled information (e.g., what is a certain newspaper’s opinion on the same topic this year? Are male/female athletes portrayed differently by the media?). The project is characterized by the interplay of multiple disciplines: the proposed architecture requires to master a combination of natural language processing and machine learning techniques. At the same time, the formidable scale of this system will require the development of novel distributed optimization methods. This interplay will be achieved thanks to my past and future collaborations, my solid background in optimization and machine learning, as well as through the acquisition of new ad-hoc skills.

The Social Life of the First Reception Regime: Human rights, dignity and hospitality on irregular migrant maritime routes into the EU

Principal investigator Daniela DeBono (Project Leader), Maja Povrzanović Frykman (Participant), Anna Triandafyllidou (Participant), Robert Schuman (Participant)
Description
Alongside the increase in EU border control, there are efforts by the European Union (EU) and its Member States to mainstream human rights principles in external border control and in the construction of fair asylum systems. The safeguarding of human rights is critically important for migrants, especially at first reception and in border activity when migrants are at their most vulnerable physically, legally and politically, socio-culturally and economically. The responsibility for ensuring that the dignity and human rights of the migrants are safeguarded is recognised by the EU and its Member States. First reception activity is officially regulated by four sets of policies and procedures, which are usually conducted within a few days or weeks. These are rescue at sea, immigration, reception/detention and asylum procedures. They are policies that involve a vast range of stakeholders and, as such, the complex interactions between their activities need to be carefully managed in order for the whole first reception system to function. Research has so far focused on the analysis of policy and institutions, but not so much on what happens on the ground. This project proposes to contribute to these efforts by examining the treatment of irregular migrants in the first reception systems of Italy and Malta. These are two countries which lie on the Central Mediterranean Maritime Route, an important route for irregular entry into the EU. Whereas there have been few maritime arrivals in Malta in the last years, Italy triggered the EU hotspot approach to help in processing irregular maritime migrants. This study aims to produce both ethnographic descriptions of the everyday implementation of the reception activity on the ground, and also critical approaches to the mainstreaming of human rights at the border. It also seeks to contribute towards discussions on the controversial use of detention at entry of all arrivals which is the premise up on which first reception is enacted. This is done through long term and multi-sited ethnographic fieldwork. The outcome of this independent academic project, funded by EU Marie Curie research funds, is the publication of articles in academic journals.
