Norm Building Processes and Forms of Policy Governance

Year 2007
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
This project addresses the question of the interplay between norm building processes and form of policy governance. How do different governance legacies affect the way the antidiscrimination legislation or its requirements/arguments are used in/to motivate policies/policy measures, and which is the relative role of different societal actors/actor constellations - social partners, private sector actors and state agencies, - in promoting the mainstreaming of this legislation?

Students Achieving Valuable Energy Savings 2

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Students Achieving Valuable Energy Savings 2 (SAVES2) will catalyse sustainable energy behaviours among over 219,000 university students in seven countries to help them reduce their exposure to fuel poverty. It incorporates two strands that engage with students living in university accommodation (Student Switch Off) and in the private-rented sector (SAVES). Student Switch Off is an energy-saving competition that will reach 38,000 students living in 144 dormitories in 14 universities of the partner countries in each academic year from 2017/18 to 2019/20. By identifying and training student ambassadors in each dormitory, and by motivating the ambassadors to encourage their peers to save energy, we will create a race between students in dormitories, each competing to save the most energy and win prizes. It will tap into online student communities through social media, using engaging digital communications (quizzes, photo competitions) to raise awareness of how students can save energy in a fun way. The centrepiece of each competition will be an energy dashboard that updates students in near-real time on the performance and position of their dormitory in the competition – providing feedback and encouraging further action. The private-rented sector engagement work (SAVES) will reach over 100,000 students when they are looking for, moving into and living in the private-rented sector. It will enable students to make better informed decisions at the point at which they are selecting a rental property – thereby routing purchase decisions towards higher efficiency properties. SAVES2 will incorporate national-level partnerships with smart meter delivery agencies to develop student-focused communication materials highlighting the benefits of smart meters. It will provide ongoing advice and support to students via energy-efficiency and bill management training, peer-to-peer advice sharing via video blogs and regular e-mail and social media communications.

Consulting and Placing Refugees

Year 2016
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The project analyses the consultation and labour exchange, when asylum seekers are in contact with the public employment service. The project describes the situation of asylum seekers in the organisations of the public employment service (so called labour agencies and jobcentres). It shows measures and programmes that aim at supporting asylum seekers' labour market integration and it looks at structures and interaction processes of labour exchange. The focus is put on the interface between careers advisory services, recruitment services for employers and employment services for jobseekers. Furthermore, it pays attention to the interface between labour agencies and jobcentres. When asylum is given to a refugee, he or she leaves the jurisdiction of the Social Code Book III (labour agencies) and enters the jurisdiction of the Social Code Book II (jobcentres).

Security And InteroperabiLity in Next Generation PPDR CommUnication InfrastructureS

Year 2013
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
'Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR) agencies in EC member states are relying on digital Private Mobile Radio (PMR) networks for mission-critical voice and data communication. These networks are highly resilient and properly dimensioned to cope with crisis and emergency handling, and are well protected against monitoring and intrusion by means of encryption, authentication and integrity. The two main standards for digital PMR networks in Europe are TETRA (TErrestrial Trunked RAdio) and TETRAPOL.The majority of these networks are based on mature technology, requiring old-fashion synchronous links (backbone), and using proprietary hardware solutions that eventually become obsolete. These networks also provide limited inter-technology coverage providing very ineffective management of emergency events, both at the national level and in cross-border regions. The main goal of SALUS is to design, implement and evaluate a next generation communication network for Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR) agencies, supported by network operators and industry, which will provide security, privacy, seamless mobility, QoS and reliability support for mission-critical PMR voice and broadband data services. The project covers the full techno-economic scope regarding development and deployment of the next generation PPDR networks by focusing on the integration with / migration to 4G wireless communications developments targeting three critical scenarios 1) city security, 2) disaster recovery, and 3) temporary protection. Salus will address key research challenges such as enterprise architectures, economic and business analysis, and a number of technical aspects concerning QoS, resilience, inter-systems handover (secure, seamless and fast), enhanced security, privacy mechanisms in heterogeneous network infrastructure, and multicast broadband PPDR services.'

Novel Social Data Mining Platform to Detect and Defeat Violent Online Radicalization

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
In 2015-2016, 20\ terrorist attacks occurred in EU28, all of them carried out by individuals radicalized by terrorist propaganda. Recruitment of this new breed of terrorists was done via social media and the Internet. To prevent such events from happening in the future and fight radicalization, it is crucial to detect cyberpropaganda early. However, social media providers (e.g. Twitter) admit that at the moment there is no adequate tool to identify terrorist-related content on the Internet. As the result, they are forced to rely on proprietary spam-fighting tools, user reports and human analysis to track down radicalized accounts that promote terrorism. Insikt Intelligence is a Spanish SME led by the EYIF 2016 Female Web Entrepreneur finalist that developed INSIKT, a novel social data mining platform to detect & defeat violent online radicalization. An early version of INSIKT was validated by several EU law enforcement agencies (LEAs), approved and attracted commercial interest. This Phase 2 project will trial INSIKT at 4 European LEAs that are looking for effective tools to prevent radical messages from spreading and reaching people vulnerable to radicalization. INSIKT provides a novel solution for LEA analysts to detect terrorist propaganda on all social media: it identifies radical content, suspicious messages and covert radicalization process with the help of sophisticated text mining algorithms. INSIKT relies on deep learning to develop automatically new models which can be used to detect other criminal activity as well. INSIKT is fit to become an important new tool in LEAs’ investigation and evidence gathering arsenal, giving them highly accurate, multilingual and real-time detection capabilities. This project will allow us to improve INSIKT, integrate it with existing LEA tools and commercialize it, addressing the needs of the €60\B security market, with the effect of creating 50\ jobs and €11.7M annual revenue within 5 years from market launch.

Retrieval and Analysis of Heterogeneous Online Content for Terrorist Activity Recognition

Year 2016
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) across Europe face today important challenges in how they identify, gather and interpret terrorist generated content online. The Dark Web presents additional challenges due to its inaccessibility and the fact that undetected material can contribute to the advancement of terrorist violence and radicalisation. LEAs also face the challenge of extracting and summarising meaningful and relevant content hidden in huge amounts of online data to inform their resource deployment and investigations. In this context, the main objective of the TENSOR project is to provide a powerful terrorism intelligence platform offering LEAs fast and reliable planning and prevention functionalities for the early detection of terrorist organised activities, radicalisation and recruitment. The platform integrates a set of automated and semi-automated tools for efficient and effective searching, crawling, monitoring and gathering online terrorist-generated content from the Surface and the Dark Web; Internet penetration through intelligent dialogue-empowered bots; Information extraction from multimedia (e.g., video, images, audio) and multilingual content; Content categorisation, filtering and analysis; Real-time relevant content summarisation and visualisation; Creation of automated audit trails; Privacy-by-design and data protection. The project brings together industry, LEAs, legal experts and research institutions. It is expected that this collaboration will have significant impact on 1) ensuring the final system meets end-user LEA requirements, 2) enabling LEAs to access and examine terrorist generated content online bringing significant advantages to their operational capability, and 3) promoting industry’s enhanced understanding of operational LEA requirements and their market competitiveness in the field of online organised crime, terrorism and harmful-radicalisation.

Securitization versus Depoliticization in the European Union Asylum and Migration Policy: The Role of the New Agencies (FRONTEX, EASO & Large-Scale IT Systems Agency)

Year 2010
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
This project examines the evolution of the European Union (EU) asylum and migration policy. It aims to elucidate an important apparent contradiction at the heart of this policy: the simultaneous co-existence of two seemingly opposite trends – ‘securitization’ on the one hand and ‘depoliticization’ on the other hand. The research project aims to account for this apparent contradiction by developing an original multidisciplinary theoretical framework, which combines insights from security studies, public policy and European studies. In addition to this original theoretical contribution, the proposed project will generate new empirical knowledge through the application of this new theoretical framework to three case studies. Those will concern the three European agencies dealing with asylum and migration, which have already been or are in the process of being established (FRONTEX, EASO and the Large-Scale IT Systems Agency). Data will be gathered and analysed according to the principle of methodological triangulation between the analysis of secondary sources, documentary analysis and semi-structured elite interviews. This research project will contribute to strengthening European excellence in social sciences, in particular in security studies, European studies and the study of governance by agencies. In addition, the proposed project will generate policy-relevant findings, which will be of interest to policy-makers dealing with asylum and migration issues and/or agency creation in any policy field.

Abstract
The catalog provides open and free access to data collected through the Migration and Remittances Household Surveys implemented under the Africa Migration Project. The project was undertaken jointly by the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the World Bank. It seeks to improve our understanding of migration and remittances in Sub-Saharan Africa, including their magnitude, causes, and impacts on poverty reduction, with a view to generating informed policy recommendations. It also seeks to strengthen the capacity of policy makers, researchers, financial institutions and donor agencies in Africa to enhance the development impact of migration and remittances in Africa. Through research, a survey, analysis and consultation, the project has generated the first comprehensive body of information on migration and remittances in Africa. The project has received financial support from the African Development Bank (AfDB), Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), Department of International Development (DFID), International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, French Ministry of Immigration, Integration, National Identity and Development Partnership, and the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA).

Migrants In Countries In Crisis

Year 2015
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The Migrants in Countries in Crisis project aims at providing accessible, methodologically robust and policy relevant data on the migration implications of crisis situations in host countries. It does so with the broader objective of informing efforts to strengthen the preparedness of countries of origin, transit and destination and of other relevant actors to address and respond to future crises. Research objectives: Crisis situations investigated include natural disaster, violent conflict or civil unrest, which have led to a breakdown of or serious challenges to public order, and, as a result, entail a serious threat to the personal safety, physical and psychological integrity and protection of migrants. While focusing on longer term impacts of and responses to crises in countries of destination, origin and transit, the research will also investigate the availability of relevant mechanisms ensuring the protection of migrants before, during and after crisis in countries covered by the research. Six crises situations have been selected as case studies for in-depth research: Central African Republic (civil unrest 2014); Cote d'Ivorire (civil unrest 2000-2011); Lebanon (2006-today, impact on migrant domestic workers); Libya (civil unrest 2011); South Africa (xenophobic violence 2008-2015); Thailand (natural disaster 2011). The research is conducted as part of a wider project led by ICMPD supporting the global Migrants in Countries of Crisis Initiative. It is coordinated by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) and is conducted in partnership the International Migration Institute (IMI) of Oxford University. In addition, local research partners are involved in the fieldwork and analysis for the case studies. The Research employs an interdisciplinary approach to assess the impact of crises on migrants in the countries under study. The research will combine secondary desk research and primary research in the field with relevant stakeholders, including migrants, policy makers and public officials, representatives of international organisations, civil society stakeholders and humanitarian organisations, diaspora organisations, academics and journalists, and employers and recruitment agencies Project Partners: International Migration Institute (IMI), University of Oxford

Partnerships, Anti-Discrimination and the Role of Immigrant Associations

Year 2009
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The project focuses on the role of immigrant associations in combating discrimination. The project sets out from previous research indicating a need for a broader understanding of immigrant associations for the development of alternative strategies in education and the labor market, in order to advance the understanding of the conditions for partnerships between civil society, public and private sectors. The project examines partnership between public, private and voluntary actors through a qualitative study of Anti-Discrimination Agencies, (ADA) in Stockholm, run by immigrant associations. The efforts of the ADA to assist individuals who feel discriminated on the basis of gender, ethnic background etc., indicates the growing importance of ADA as actors in the field of social strategies for social inclusion. One of the preliminary findings indicates that activism among ADA as civil society organisations is based on delicate balancing between volunteer activism and adjustment to increasingly emphasized market exigency.

African Governance and Space: Transport Corridors, Border Towns and Port Cities in Transition

Year 2016
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
AFRIGOS investigates the process of 'respacing' Africa, a political drive towards regional and continental integration, on the one hand, and the re-casting of Africa's engagement with the global economy, on the other. This is reflected in unprecedented levels of investment in physical and communications infrastructure, and the outsourcing of key functions of Customs, Immigration and security agencies. AFRIGOS poses the question of how far respacing is genuinely forging institutions that are facilitating or obstructing the movement of people and goods; that are enabling or preventing urban and border spaces from being more effectively and responsively governed; and that take into account the needs of African populations whose livelihoods are rooted in mobility and informality. The principal research questions are approached through a comparative study of port cities, border towns and other strategic nodes situated along the busiest transport corridors in East, Central, West and Southern Africa. These represent sites of remarkable dynamism and cosmopolitanism, which reflects their role in connecting African urban centres to each other and to other global cities. AFRIGOS considers how governance 'assemblages' are forged at different scales and is explicitly comparative. It works through 5 connected Streams that address specific questions: 1. AGENDA-SETTING is concerned with policy (re-)formulation. 2. PERIPHERAL URBANISM examines governance in border towns and port cities. 3. BORDER WORKERS addresses everyday governance emerging through the interaction of officials and others who make their livelihoods from the border. 4. CONNECTIVE INFRASTRUCTURE looks as the transformative effects of new technologies. 5. PEOPLE & GOODS IN MOTION traces the passage of people and goods and the regimes of regulation to which they are subjected. AFRIGOS contributes to interdisciplinary research on borderland studies, multi-level governance and the everyday state.

Welfare State Futures

Year 2014
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Welfare states are at a critical turning point. The development of welfare systems was one of the defining characteristics of the 20th century, especially in Europe. However, in times of change, it is important to re-think ‘the welfare state’ with a programme of innovative research designed to ask, and answer, fundamental questions about the design, delivery and experience of welfare in the 21st century. It is for this reason that the NORFACE network is launching an international research programme on the topic of Welfare State Futures. This highly topical theme offers an approach from a variety of perspectives and disciplines, enables and encourages multi-disciplinarity and offers a fruitful topic for a European approach, with interesting opportunities for comparison. Since 2004 the NORFACE Network has proved itself as a successful coordinated common action of – currently - sixteen national research funding agencies. NORFACE (New Opportunities for Research Funding Agency Cooperation in Europe) has offered unique opportunities for participating funding agencies by developing common research funding instruments, thus creating opportunities for facilitating and building new networks of research collaboration. Major achievements up until now have been three transnational initiatives: three rounds of the NORFACE Seminar Series in 2005, 2006 and 2007, the pilot research programme “Re-emergence of Religion as a Social Force in Europe?” (€ M 5,4) in 2006 and the transnational research programme “Migration in Europe - Social, Economic, Cultural and policy Dynamics” (€ M 23 and M € 6 ERA-Net Plus contribution) in 2008. In 2010, the NORFACE Network committed itself to launching a new innovate joint research programme on Welfare State Futures. In the planning of this new programme, NORFACE builds on the valuable experience gained in developing and running these previous Calls.

Automatic non-destructive recognition of used printing techniques on substrates

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
ANDRUPOS is a leading edge web based document examination system capable of authenticating printing techniques, printer and paper sources. It is built on research projects and studies, in which the feasibility and the relevant technologies in ICT, software and analysis technologies have been validated and tested with pilot users. ANDRUPOS is a game changer in document fraud detection such as ID documents, passports or banknotes, as it enables for the first time an automatic reliable detection method, giving quick and confident reports on possible fraud and – another very new not yet available feature – links counterfeits with printers, so that also different counterfeits and cases can be traced back to the people responsible for it like organized crime. Fraudulent identity and security documents are integral prerequisites for the smuggling of migrants, trafficking in persons, terrorist mobility, to facilitate the smuggling of drugs, weapons and other goods and they simplify cross-border crime of all types. Counterfeit documents enable opening of bank accounts or receiving illegal social insurance benefits. Making and using fraudulent documents by organised crime produce huge civil, social and personal losses. The target market comprises banking (national banks), border security (airports, border crossing points), public and private forensic institutes as well as law enforcement agencies. ANDRUPOS pro-actively targets the needs and requirements of national and European users like Law Enforcements Agencies, Criminal Offices, National Police Services, Customs Investigation Bureaus, National Banks, Financial/Customs. The main objective of the FTI project now is to do the final optimization and upgrading as well as customization and then going into a final validation phase with test at first customer stations.

Analysing South-South Humanitarian Responses to Displacement from Syria: Views from Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Since 2012, over 4 million people have fled Syria in ‘the most dramatic humanitarian crisis that we have ever faced’ (UNHCR). By November 2015 there were 1,078,338 refugees from Syria in Lebanon, 630,776 in Jordan and 2,181,293 in Turkey. Humanitarian agencies and donor states from both the global North and the global South have funded and implemented aid programmes, and yet commentators have argued that civil society groups from the global South are the most significant actors supporting refugees in Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey. Whilst they are highly significant responses, however, major gaps in knowledge remain regarding the motivations, nature and implications of Southern-led responses to conflict-induced displacement. This project draws on multi-sited ethnographic and participatory research with refugees from Syria and their aid providers in Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey to critically examine why, how and with what effect actors from the South have responded to the displacement of refugees from Syria. The main research aims are: 1. identifying diverse models of Southern-led responses to conflict-induced displacement, 2. examining the (un)official motivations, nature and implications of Southern-led responses, 3. examining refugees’ experiences and perceptions of Southern-led responses, 4. exploring diverse Southern and Northern actors’ perceptions of Southern-led responses, 5. tracing the implications of Southern-led initiatives for humanitarian theory and practice. Based on a critical theoretical framework inspired by post-colonial and feminist approaches, the project contributes to theories of humanitarianism and debates regarding donor-recipient relations and refugees’ agency in displacement situations. It will also inform the development of policies to most appropriately address refugees’ needs and rights. This highly topical and innovative project thus has far-reaching implications for refugees and local communities, academics, policy-makers and practitioners.

GLIMER - Governance and Local Integration of Migrants and Europe’s Refugees

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The current migration/refugee crisis presents opportunities and well as challenges. The overarching aim of the GLIMER project is to generate theoretically informed and empirically grounded knowledge that may, through best practice sharing and reporting, function to support policy-makers and stakeholders to cultivate durable solutions in the governance of local integration of migrants and refugees in Europe. The GLIMER consortium consists of partners from Italy and Cyprus (two landing points for many refugees as they first enter the EU) and UK and Sweden (two countries seen as final destinations), and the cases focus on new arrivals in the areas in and around Consenza, Nicosia, Glasgow and Malmö. Based in an understanding of the link between governance and integration at the local level, the project will examine emergent systems of co-responsibitliy between local and national agencies in their responses to managing the integration of migrants and refugees. Of central importance here will be the utilizing of what have become known as Urban Living Labs (ULLs) across each of the country cases. GLIMER will develop an approach to ULL as collaborative ventures between citizens, companies, local governments and researchers. In addition, GLIMER will utilize ‘natural’ ULLs that have arisen in the country cases where actors and networks can be brought together as stakeholders. Empirical data will be collected through participant observations, recordings and interviewing. The core research questions guiding the ULLs consider (i) to what extent cities and local contexts are adopting approaches to the governance of migration and refugees that diverge from national level policy position, (ii) how and in what ways cities and localities are cultivating innovative approaches in the reception and integration of migrants and refugees, and finally (iii) which approaches that are proving successful and how can these be a modelled for other contexts to learn from.

Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
SCIENCE4FUTURE is the first regional European Researchers’ Night in Northern Germany covering the cities of Kiel, Eckernförde, Plön, Preetz and Rendsburg with more than 650,000 inhabitants. For the first time the NIGHTs 2016/2017 will bring together in one event all of the region’s 14 research organisations comprising all academic disciplines. A multifaceted awareness campaign incl. live broadcasts during the NIGHTs will reach 80% of the households. More than 80 activities per NIGHT across 11 sites/5 towns will give the public the chance to personally talk, work and play with scientists thus breaking down stereotypes and showcasing the whole spectrum of social, environmental and economic benefits that our researchers achieve every day. A free shuttle will allow visitors (minimum 10,000 expected each NIGHT) to see the whole range of local, national and European research projects in our region. Through a careful choice of venues (incl. shopping malls and night clubs) the involvement of schools and youth centres, a targeted publicity campaign and a programme packed with fun-filled activities, these two NIGHTs will attract particularly children and young people including those usually less interested in academia. Researchers will demonstrate simple “take-home” experiments to teachers, nursery staff and parents to ensure that the interest for research sparked among the young during the event is kept alive beyond the NIGHT. Moreover academic support services (research, international, student admissions and diversity offices) will offer advice on career options. SCIENCE4FUTURE will also host special events with and for refugees to facilitate integration of our new citizens through education and research. With the strong support of all stakeholders (companies, authorities, NGOs, schools and nurseries, sponsors, funding agencies, media) and the active involvement of researchers in the design and delivery of the programme SCIENCE4FUTURE will become a regional flagship event.
