Abstract
The MAFE project purpose is to provide significant and extensive original quantitative data on the characteristics and behaviours of Sub-Saharan African migrants. It is divided into 4 connected themes. Theme 1: appreciate the current migration tendencies between Africa and Europe. Theme 2: Explain the departure and the return dynamics. Theme 3: Integration and reintegration of migrants. Theme 4: International migrations and family transformations. Those dynamics must be appropriately understood, in order to conceive better migration policies. The MAFE project studies the migratory flows between Europe and Senegal, DRC and Ghana, which represent more than a quarter of African migrations to Europe.

Integration measures and labour market success of refugees and beneficiaries of subsidiary protection in Austria

Year 2016
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
More than 61,000 refugees and beneficiaries of subsidiary protection have been recognised in Austria between 2006 and 2015. In February 2016, 21,000 of either status were registered as unemployed. Empirical research on the social position of the above groups is scarce in Austria. The FIMAS research project aimed at closing these research gaps by particularly focusing on labour market integration of the growing refugee population. Based on a quantitative survey, refugees’ integration trajectories as well as the effects of dedicated measures regarding labour market integration were analysed. Face-to-face interviews were conducted with 1,200 recognised refugees and beneficiaries of subsidiary protection of working age who had arrived mostly since 2006. These interviews with persons from Syria, Afghanistan, the Russian Federation and Iraq were conducted by native speaker interviewers in nine Austrian cities: Vienna, Graz (Styria), Linz and Wels (Upper Austria), Salzburg (Salzburg), and Innsbruck, Imst, Wörgl and Kufstein. Based on the data analysis, the social position of refugees and possible barriers to their successful integration are being presented in order to enable improved labour market integration.

Knowledge Transfer and Innovations in European Cross Border Regions

Year 2010
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Cross-border regional cooperation in education, human welfare , migration, environmental conservation, and tourism has been recently established in the form of supranational alliances supported by EU funding, aimed at decreasing the political barriers created by boundaries and increasing regional competitiveness, European cohesion and economic prosperity for peripheral areas across the union. This collaboration is particularly successful amongst SMTEs and includes marketing, joint promotion, and training programmes for owners and employees. While these and processes of regionalization have been studied, knowledge transfer and diffusion of innovations amongst SMTEs and the contribution of the unique characteristics of cross-border regions to these processes have been ignored. Since border regions host people from different countries, cultures and backgrounds, they may as well be considered a ‘melting pot’ for creativity and innovations hosting that makes than an innovative milieu for the tourism industry. The study will identify knowledge transfer and innovative processes amongst SMTEs in cross-border regions in the context of EU funded initiatives, such as INTERREG, between Finland, Sweden and Norway and the aspects influencing their nature. It questions whether proximity to border intersection influences the levels of innovations and creativity and whether intensive movement of people and tourists influence the transfer of ideas and diffusion of innovations. The study will also identify indicators for monitoring levels of creativity and innovations in these areas and whether cross-border business networks are used as knowledge transfer mechanisms. In-depth interviews with SMTEs owners/manager, tourism officers and programme leaders, will take place in both regions as well as some quantitative data regarding the exchange of products and levels of revenues from the introduction of new tourism facilities and products will be compared.

ASYFAIR: Fair and Consistent Border Controls? A Critical, Multi-methodological and Interdisciplinary Study of Asylum Adjudication in Europe

Year 2016
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
‘Consistency’ is regularly cited as a desirable attribute of border control, but it has received little critical social scientific attention. This inter-disciplinary project, at the inter-face between critical human geography, border studies and law, will scrutinise the consistency of European asylum adjudication in order to develop richer theoretical understanding of this lynchpin concept. It will move beyond the administrative legal concepts of substantive and procedural consistency by advancing a three-fold conceptualisation of consistency – as everyday practice, discursive deployment of facts and disciplinary technique. In order to generate productive intellectual tension it will also employ an explicitly antagonistic conceptualisation of the relationship between geography and law that views law as seeking to constrain and systematise lived space. The project will employ an innovative combination of methodologies that will produce unique and rich data sets including quantitative analysis, multi-sited legal ethnography, discourse analysis and interviews, and the findings are likely to be of interest both to academic communities like geographers, legal and border scholars and to policy makers and activists working in border control settings. In 2013 the Common European Asylum System (CEAS) was launched to standardise the procedures of asylum determination. But as yet no sustained multi-methodological assessment of the claims of consistency inherent to the CEAS has been carried out. This project offers not only the opportunity to assess progress towards harmonisation of asylum determination processes in Europe, but will also provide a new conceptual framework with which to approach the dilemmas and risks of inconsistency in an area of law fraught with political controversy and uncertainty around the world. Most fundamentally, the project promises to debunk the myths surrounding the possibility of fair and consistent border controls in Europe and elsewhere.

Integration of Immigrants in Western European Countries: A Comparative Sociology Perspective

Year 2012
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The proposed project aims to undertake a systematic investigation of the incorporation of immigrants into the labor market of Western European countries within a comparative sociology framework. The study will be conducted with a cross-national comparative perspective, while simultaneously examining the impact of ethnic origin and generation on various labor market outcomes for immigrants. Thus, the general objective of the proposed research project is to examine the inter-generational patterns of labor market incorporation across various ethnic groups of immigrants in a comparative cross-national perspective of ‘old-immigration’in Western European societies. The following countries will be included in the study: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK. Specifically, the proposed research aims: 1. To examine the effect of ethnic origin and generation on the relative labor market outcomes of immigrants (in comparison to native populations) in each one of the above ten countries, while focusing on the following labor market outcomes: active labor force participation, occupational attainment and earnings. 2. To compare the ways in which ethnic origin affects the relative labor market outcomes of (first and second generation) immigrant men and that of (first and second generation) immigrant women. 3. To compare the results obtained for the labor market outcomes (as described in objectives 1 and 2) across different countries; specifically, to study the differences in the relative labor market outcomes of different immigrant groups across structural characteristics of the countries as degree of national labor market flexibility, welfare state regimes and immigrant integration policies The proposed research project will use quantitative analysis methods (e.g. various procedures of multivariate analysis) and draw on the data obtained from national representative samples in the ten Western European countries.

A Quantitative Approach to Neolithic Plant-working Techniques: From Assessing Tool Use to Modelling Human Dispersals

Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The QUANT project is designed to study the spread of the Neolithic in the Central and Western Mediterranean through an innovative and multidisciplinary approach to the flaked stone tools. Particular attention will be given to the study of the tools used for plant harvesting and processing tasks (i.e. sickle blades, blade scrapers, burins), which are the most evident innovations in flaked stone technology associated with the Neolithisation phenomenon. The aim is to highlight different traditions in plant-working techniques, and to determine how these were disseminated across the Mediterranean during the Neolithic expansion, between the seventh and the sixth millennium cal BC. The application of new technologies will be fundamental to the success of the project. Use-wear analysis of the stone tools will be integrated with confocal scanning microscopy in order to better analyse the plant-polish variability, which will contribute to the development of functional studies. Obtained results on the regional diversity of plant-working techniques will be modelled through computational approaches. By incorporating GIS-based cost-surface analysis it will be indeed possible to model the dispersal of the plant-working techniques observed, and thus explore the pathways and rhythms of expansion followed by Neolithic groups during their migrations across Mediterranean Europe. New technologies will also play a fundamental role in the presentation and diffusion of the data. An open access library containing photos, micrographs, and quantitative data on the analysed artefacts will be made fully available online. In addition, results will be made available to the general public through the creation of a blog and a website, and through several outreach activities. The project will be very profitable for both the proposer and the Host, and it will contribute notably to European excellence and competitiveness, enhancing public awareness of European history and past migrations.

Polish Migrants in Iceland. Mobile and Immobile Strategies of Response to the Aftermath of Economic Crisis

Year 2015
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The project aims to: Identify and analyse social, cultural and economic strategies used by Polish migrants as responses to economic crisis in Iceland; Enhance theoretical and empirical understanding of Polish migrants’ formal and/or informal adaptation to contemporary conditions of Icelandic labour market; Investigate the relations between mobile and/or immobile livelihood strategies in crisis aftermath; Enhance and/or develop a scientific approach for analysing the impact of global forces and connections on migrants emplaced practices. The project will develop the discipline and proposed subject matter by: Providing anthropological perspective to migration scholarship, which continues to be dominated by economists, demographers and sociologists. This is particularly true in Poland where the premier centres of migration studies are located within disciplines favouring analyses of quantitative data and are preoccupied with migration flows on large scale. Introducing multi-sited ethnography and novel research idea that moves beyond the binary thinking about migration and stasis by introducing both of these concepts as interconnected and interdependent. While mobility per se has already been studied, migration scholars have not yet explored its effects on different social domains and localities on a micro scale. In other words, the contemporary concern with mobility, while necessary, has made some scholars lose sight of the continued importance of place-based practices and relations between mobile and immobile subjects. Filling the empirical gap on Polish post-accession migration which is chiefly focused on the UK, Holland or Germany to the detriment of studying new destinations such as Iceland. Contributing to a wider scientific debate on the proposed subject matter as a comparative case study enriched with ethnographic details and deep analysis of the interdependencies between migration patterns and economic crisis.

Year 2014
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The overriding aim of this project is to conduct a comparative EU wide analysis on youth unemployment that is sensitive to gender, ethnic and class differences and the historical legacies of multi-level institutions shaping relevant policies. This aim will be achieved through 10 objectives organized around 12 research, management, dissemination and scientific coordination work packages. There are three cross-cutting research WPs that examine Performance, Policy Learning and its limitations and include the production of an International Handbook on Strategic Transitions for Youth Labour in Europe; Six substantive research WPs focus on issues of: • Labour Market Mismatch in terms of education and skills as well as geographical mobility; • Family and Cultural barriers to employment and, • the opportunities and consequences of Self-Employment and Flexicurity. The central concept informing this project is based on a policy learning approach to address youth unemployment. This involves an ongoing process of including a wide range of EU stakeholders to inform the research and disseminate the results in different institutional conditions. It provides a recent historical analysis accounting for factors prior to, and following on from, the on-going economic crisis. It informs policy makers about of what works and why. The consortium will achieve the expected impact of 1) advancing the knowledge base of employment strategies to overcome youth unemployment, defining measures, methods and evaluations, 2) creating a critical network of stakeholder organisation. Outputs will include: • An International Handbook on Strategic Transitions for Youth Labour in Europe. • Multimedia dissemination: working papers, policy briefings, newsletters, press coverage and video podcasts. • A comparative analyses of where and under which circumstances innovative and effective policies for getting young people into work are evident, where these policies work and why; • Policy recommendations, from both case studies and quantitative analysis, on the impacts of these employment strategies; • Timely and professional dissemination to key stakeholders facilitated by the partner EurActiv. Three WPs focus on the management, dissemination and scientific coordination of the project to achieve these objectives and outputs.

Public opinion, mobilizations and policies concerning asylum seekers and refugees in anti-immigrants times (Europe and Belgium)

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The European challenges in the field of migration have an impact on society, since the division between them opposed to newcomers and welcoming them has been continuously increasing. The project addresses the perceptions of the Belgian and European population about refugees/migrants and vice versa as well as their interactions with the policy agenda of asylum and migration with a European comparative perspective and a specific focus on Belgium. As Europe face important migratory challenges and political difficulties we have seen an increase of the public opinion’s polarisation regarding asylum and refugees, it is important to address this question. Including teams from our project will analyse this polarisation and its links to policies, as it is necessary for a better understanding of the current debate on migration in Europe and Belgium. The 2015 asylum crisis will be considered as indicative of the general European and Belgian citizens’ reactions about migration. The focus is then on attitudes, representations, discourses and practices about refugees, on the interactions at the local level between the majority populations and newly arrived migrants. The project will follow two objectives. First studying public opinion towards asylum seekers and refugees with a European cross- national perspective but also how these groups perceive Belgium, its asylum system and its reception policies. The second objective is to analyse the polarisation of the public opinion by focussing on pro and anti-refugees’ actions at the local level. This will allow understanding the links between public opinion and the implementation of asylum and reception policies. In order to fulfil these objectives, our project is based on 5 Work Packages that each focus on a specific dimension. The first two ones aim at developing a European comparative perspective on perceptions towards migrants, refugees and asylum seekers. This then includes a quantitative analysis of public opinion’s perceptions towards new immigration flows as well as a comparison of 5 European case studies (Sweden, Italy, Grece, Hungary and Germany). The three other work packages aim at a deep analysis of the Belgian situation. First, they consist of understanding actions and reactions towards asylum seekers and refugees at a local level. This implies to study the opposite reactions with an in-depth analysis of their content, justifications and determinants but also to focus on interactions between social groups (pro vs. anti migrants groups; ional citizens & refugees) as well as the interactions between the population’s reaction and the implementation of asylum and receptions policies. Second, studying the Belgian situation implies to analyse asylum seekers and refugees perceptions regarding the country’s asylum and reception policies. Lastly, it implies to realise a policy evaluation of those policies.

Second, studying the Belgian situation implies to analyse asylum seekers and refugees perceptions regarding the country’s asylum and reception policies. Lastly, it implies to realise a policy evaluation of those policies. The aim of this project and the main questions it addresses focus more on the relations and on the dynamics existing between the citizens and the migrants, asylum seekers and refugees. Hence, we propose to broaden the scope of what is usually done by extending the focus on actors that are often not implied in migration studies: the majority population and the impact of new migration waves on social cohesion. The expected results concerns: 1) an in-depth and comparative knowledge of attitudes towards migrants and refugees in Europe; 2) an analysis of the factors influencing the attitudes of rejections, disregards and support; 3) an in-depth analysis of the specificities of the current wave of migration compared to the last ones; 4) an in-depth analysis of citizens’ and migrants’ discourses, representation and practices and of their reaction on social cohesion at a local level;
