Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The main purpose of the proposed research is to document human migration and resettlement experience, with a particular focus of migrants from Syria, the Horn of Africa, and Asia (especially Afghanistan). The particular focus of the study is to determine the impact of family separation on resettlement and social inclusion outcomes for refugees and their host communities in Australia. The findings will help strengthen the evidence-base on resettlement as well as inform Oxfam’s campaign on migration focusing on family reunion.

Governing Irregular Migration: States, Actors and Intermediaries

Year 2012
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The project asked two main research questions: How do migration control policies affect the plans and actions of prospective (and actual) irregular migrants? and, why some policies are more successful than others? In seeking to answer these questions, four empirical issues were addressed: (a) how migrants make and change their plans despite legal restrictions at destination countries; (b) which are the actors (national, local, transnational, state or non-state) that affect their decisions and actions; (c) how do these actors affect the decision making of potential migrants, their plans and actions ; (d) why specific actors are more effective than state policies in shaping migrants plans and decisions. The empirical research undertaken in this project concentrated on three migration systems within which irregular migration is an important component of overall migration towards Greece: Migration System 1.Balkans to EU migration system: Albania to Greece; Migration System 2. Eastern Europe to EU migration system: Georgia and Ukraine to Greece; Migration System 3. Southeast Asia to EU migration system Pakistan and Afghanistan to Greece.

Processes of labour market integration of refugees and beneficiaries of subsidiary protection in Austria

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Research Objectives Upon their recognition, refugees and beneficiaries of subsidiary protection receive full access to the labour market in Austria and should be enabled to become financially independent quickly and sustainably. To this end, labour market integration is vital. Building on the FIMAS research project and survey, the project FIMAS+INTEGRATION aimed at closing research gaps related to the processes of labour market integration of the growing refugee population. Based on a longitudinal survey, refugees’ integration trajectories as well as the effects of measures for labour market integration were analysed. The total sample includes a panel component, following initial respondents from 2016/2017, and a refresher sample. Online, self-completion, and face-to-face CAPI interviews were conducted with more than 1,600 recognised refugees and beneficiaries of subsidiary protection between December 2017 and April 2018. The sample includes persons of working age from Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Interviews were implemented in five federal states: Vienna, Styria, Upper Austria, Salzburg, and Tyrol.

IAB-BAMF-SOEP survey of refugees

Year 2019
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The IAB-BAMF-SOEP Refugee Sample is a cooperation project of the IAB, the SOEP at DIW Berlin and the Research Center of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF-FZ). It is a survey of recently arrived asylum seekers in Germany regarding their socio-economic attributes, their schooling, their flight routes and experience as well as their past and current living conditions, their labor market experience and their values regarding various sociopolitical issues (democracy, religion, gender equality). The first wave of this survey has been conducted in 2016 and covers 4,816 adult refugees, who arrived in Germany since 2013. The Refugee Sample has been drawn from the Central Register of Foreigners (AZR) of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF). It is a representative survey for the refugees, who arrived in Germany between 1.1.2013 and 31.1.2016 and were registered as asylum seekers by the end of June 2016. The design of the sample follows a longitudinal structure, whereby asylum seekers from countries with a good prospect of staying in Germany at the time of the sampling (i.e. Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria) have been oversampled. In addition, the oversampling has also been applied to women and persons aged over 30. These disproportions are taken into account by means of appropriate weighting methods, so that the results can always be interpreted as representative findings.

Shadows of Slavery in West Africa and Beyond. A Historical Anthropology

Year 2013
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Though the colonial abolition of West African slavery and slave trade is well researched, the aftermath of slavery still deserves attention. What does it mean to be of slave descent today? How does the legacy of slavery and the slave trade overlap with harsh contemporary forms of marginality and exploitation? Moreover, what do we see when these questions are raised in a much broader comparative perspective? This project looks at the follow up of the abolition of slavery and the slave trade, a global process that invested the world at different times with a rich and complex variety of outcomes. Most historical research has stopped at the early colonial period, a very well documented phase of world history. Here, the analysis expands up to the present, and beyond the boundaries West African studies. Four regions of the world, which are under scrutiny for trafficking and contemporary slavery, will be studied comparatively. These are Eastern Senegal (West-Africa), Libya (North Africa), Coastal Madagascar (Indian Ocean), and North Afghanistan (Central Asia). The ambition is to link the micro-study of lived experience, cultural meanings and practices with the analysis of linkages and broader historical processes. To get results, there is need of a dialogue with human rights, legal theory, studies of gender and racial discrimination as well as scholarly insights on globalization and neo-liberalism. The ultimate objective of the project is an analytically integrated study of the aftermath of slavery that captures both the variety of concrete case-studies and the larger history of linkages between different parts of Africa and the world, Europe included. Innovation stands at the crossroad of chronological, geographical and disciplinary boundaries.

Processes of labour market integration of refugees and beneficiaries of subsidiary protection in Austria (2)

Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Research Objectives Building on the FIMAS and FIMAS+INTEGRATION surveys, the project FIMAS+INTEGRATION 2 continues with the third wave of the Austrian longitudinal survey on refugees’ integration trajectories. The aim of the FIMAS projects is to close the research gaps related to the processes of labour market integration of the growing refugee population through the analysis of quantitative data on central topics related to refugee integration. The project will investigate individual trajectories as well as trends of refugee integration and the effects of measures for labour market integration. The total sample will include a panel component, following initial respondents from 2016/2017 (FIMAS) and 2017/2018 (FIMAS+INTEGRATION), plus a refresher sample. Interviews will mainly be conducted online and complemented with telephone and face-to-face interviews. More than 1,500 recognised refugees and beneficiaries of subsidiary protection in all nine federal states will be interviewed. The sample will include persons of working age from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Iran. Interviews will be implemented in three languages (Arabic, Farsi/Dari, German) by trained interviewers.

Aligning Migration Management and the Migration-Development Nexus

Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
In order to manage the long-term challenges of global migration, Europe must create effective and coherent policies for engaging with countries of origin and transit. Effectiveness and cohesion depend on the real-world mechanisms at work: How do the root causes of migration operate? What do prospective migrants see as alternatives to migration? How do policy measures interact with other factors in shaping migration outcomes? Because the quality of policies is so intimately connected with the actual development-related causes and consequences of migration, MIGNEX addresses the full scope of the topic as described in the Work Programme. The project’s overall objective is to contribute to more effective and coherent migration management through evidence-based understanding of the linkages between development and migration. Steps toward this objective comprise extensive research in ten strategically relevant countries of origin and transit, including Afghanistan, Guinea, Somalia, Nigeria and Turkey. The project team will conduct a survey with a target sample of 12,500 individuals, in addition to qualitative data collection and policy analysis. Correctly identifying two-way causal mechanisms between migration and development is imperative but very difficult. The project design incorporates two innovative responses to this challenge. First, it follows a principle of disaggregation, which, among other things, entails specific attention to local-level mechanisms. Second, the analysis combines conventional methods, such as multivariate regression, with Qualitative Comparative Analysis, which is a technique that allows for identifying complex causal relationship on the basis of in-depth case studies. In the analysis of policy coherence, the consortium will focus on identifying the causes of incoherence. The proposal clearly specifies three primary expected impacts and sets out an ambitious and professional strategy for impact maximization.

Just and durable peace by piece

Year 2008
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Peace is elusive and the quest for peace is perpetual. In Iraq, Afghanistan and the Middle East, peace and war exist in parallel and contemporary peace support operations simultaneously involve combat operations and building peace. Hence, the goal of establishing just and durable peace is a fundamental challenge to contemporary peacemakers and academics alike. In order to shed new theoretical and conceptual light on the problematique of building just and durable peace and to offer policy-relevant advice, the team JAD-PbP has identified three critical challenges, which constitute the core of the proposal. The first challenge focuses on the quest for justice in contemporary peace processes, which has become increasingly apparent as several violent conflicts and wars are distinguished by gross human rights violation and ethnic cleansing. The second challenge concerns the quest for durable peace. Several contemporary conflicts tend to resist negotiated settlement. Yet, the ones that do reach a peace agreement still have a poor track record on implementation. The third challenge relates to the quest for effective strategies, particularly concerning the involvement of international actors in peacebuilding. JAD-PbP is convinced that the only way to address these challenges is through an interdisciplinary approach, drawing on insights in peace and conflict research, international law, political science and international relations. JAD-PbP has four core scientific objectives: (1) Enhance theoretical and methodological conceptualisation of just and durable peace (2) Analyse legal and democratic accountability of peacebuilding strategies, including mapping international law and norms on the use of force for humanitarian reasons. (3) Examine the effectiveness of general peacebuilding strategies and evaluate to what extent they enhance just and durable peace (4) Examine and compare EU:s peacebuilding strategies in Western Balkans and the Middle East

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.

"According to recent estimates, more than 21 million people were fleeing from war, conflicts, and prosecution in 2015 – about half of them being children and adolescents. Refugee youth often endure hardship before and during their escape and once they arrive in their host country are faced with the challenges of building a new home. How do refugee youth react to and deal with the process of adapting to a new socio-cultural environment (acculturation)? Acculturation is a multifaceted process and a number of factors have been identified on the individual, social and broader societal level that influence this process. In the past two years, many young people from Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan have arrived in Germany. However, due to the recency of these events knowledge of the factors influencing acculturation in newly arrived refugee youth in Germany is virtually absent. This project aims to study acculturation in newly arrived Arabic speaking refugee youth (the largest population of new arrivals). The project will address questions such as: (1) What are the most pressing challenges faced by newly arrived Arabic refugee youth in Germany?, (2) How does their mental health and well-being affect their adjustment?, (3) What role do family and peer networks play in their adjustment?, (4) How is their social behavior and trust affected by their refugee experience?, (5) What are refugee youths’ hopes and perspectives for the future? Refugee youth are a vulnerable population. It is thus important to engage them in this research project in a way that reduces potential harm and gives relevance to their lives and experiences. To this end, the project will use a mixed-methods approach combining standardized quantitative measures commonly used in refugee studies with qualitative approaches giving voice to refugee youth’s own perspectives. Moreover, this project will be implemented as a longitudinal project to gain insight into the acculturation process as it unfolds. The project will be carried out primarily by a Syrian doctoral student, who will be provided with the opportunity to pursue her doctoral studies in Germany and who will bring valuable insider knowledge to the project. It is hoped that this research will not only provide insight into how refugee youth make a new home in Germany, but also inform the development of targeted intervention and acculturation programs."
