Report on political participation of mobile EU citizens : Belgium

Authors Daniela Vintila, Louise Nikolic, Jean-Michel Lafleur
Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
TIn Belgium, EU citizens and third-country nationals have the right to vote in local elections. Third-country nationals only gain this right after five years of continuous residence in Belgium. EU citizens also enjoy passive electoral rights in local elections. Furthermore, EU citizens have the right to vote in and stand for the European Parliament (EP) elections held in Belgium. The electoral rights for nonresident Belgian citizens are more restrictive. Non-resident citizens have the right to vote, but not to stand for national legislative elections. Belgian citizens also have the right to vote for EP elections, whether they reside in another EU Member State or a third country, but only those residing in other EU Member States can stand as candidates for these elections. Once registered, all voters are obliged to vote in Belgium. Despite the dissemination efforts made by different institutions and civil society organizations for past elections in Belgium, a key difficulty that voters still face is the lack of information about the Belgian registration procedures and the political process more generally. Possible facilitators to encourage the political participation of non-citizen residents would be to formalise information dissemination strategies and communicate with new residents in different languages.

Outcast or Embraced? Clusters of Foreign Immigrants in Belgium, c. 1840-1890

Year 2014
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
This project aims to investigate the scale and nature of socio-cultural encounters and confrontations that emanated from foreign migration to Belgium between c. 1840 and 1890 by cross- and interdisciplinary analysis and valorization of a series of exceptionally rich but underexploited series of the federal historical heritage. Situated at the crossroads of migration history, maritime history and the history of science and technology and of social policy, this project employs these sources to map the characteristics of foreign migration streams to Belgium and to gain insight into their varied interactions with their host society. It focuses on an exceptional period in European and Belgian history, that was characterized by rising mobility and increasing economic integration, but also witnessed the emergence of the „modern‟ nation state, in which the distinction between „foreigner‟ and „national‟ became more important. The project aims (1) to map the scale, chronology and profiles of foreign migration to 19th-century Belgium, and (2) to investigate the political, economic, social and cultural dimensions of interactions of foreigners with different layers of Belgian society. Its underlying assumption is that increasing international mobility and circulation – rather than one-off migration – had a profound influence on the economic, political, cultural and social history of 19th-century Europe in general, and Belgium in particular. The research results from this project will therefore not only contribute to a better insight into the „national‟ history of Belgium, but will also provide major contributions to several international debates in migration history, including on the nature of a so-called „mobility transition‟ (Lucassen & Lucassen 2009), the interactions between state policies and migration patterns (Noiriel 1998; Rosental 2011), the role of migration „chains‟ and networks (Wegge 1998; Lesger et al. 2002), the international dimensions of the „knowledge economy‟ (Black 2013), and the long-term integration of international labour markets (Hatton & Williamson 2006).

Abstract
This research program aims at finding postcolonial dynamics and logics in the field of migrations. Several lines of research will make it possible to update these processes in political, religious and associative spaces. The recomposition of Congolese migration in North America is also considered, as it is an example of the loss of centrality of the former colonial metropolis.

Evaluation of the impact of neighborhood initiatives

Year 2016
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The University of Leuven (KUL) in collaboration with the University of Liège (ULg), conducted a survey to measure the impact of neighborhood initiatives organized by reception centers for asylum seekers in Belgium. Each reception center in Belgium organizes many activities in order to integrate as much as possible as an open center in their environment: open days, volunteer actions, theatrical performances, workshops, etc. Through the 'neighborhood initiatives', the centers seek to create a positive attitude from the Belgian population towards reception centers for asylum seekers and to present a correct and realistic image of what is an asylum seeker.

Ethnic Educational Inequality: The Role of Neighbourhood Contexts

Year 2007
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
"Theoretical background and objectives Comparative research on ethnic educational inequalities has repeatedly shown that Belgium is one of the countries with the most severe ethnic penalties in education (Marks, 2005; OECD, 2006, 2007). This project tests contextual explanations for educational disadvantages among the second generation in Belgium, since common explanations from a comparative stratification perspective in terms of social background or family resources could not fully explain lower attainment levels among the Turkish and Moroccan second generation in Belgium (Phalet, Deboosere and Bastiaenssen). The first study looks at the role of ethnic composition in the municipality as a proxy for ethnic capital and compares different concepts of ethnic composition both theoretically and empirically. The second study asks to what extent the positive ethnic density effect found in the first study is conditional on neighbourhood structure, arguing that dense social networks with co-ethnics are more easily developed and maintained and yield more returns for educational success in more stable, higher quality neighbourhoods. Research design, data and methodology Multilevel analysis is applied to individual data from the 1991 Belgian Census and contextual data of all Belgian municipalities in order to examine contextual influences on ethnic educational inequality. Findings The first study shows that the percentage of ethnic minorities goes together with lower school completion rates among the Belgian majority population, but the effects are inconsistent among the three largest ethnic minority groups in Belgium, the Italian, Moroccan and Turkish second generation. In contrast, ethnic density, i.e., the presence of co-ethnics in the municipality, is positively associated with school completion in minority as well as majority groups. The second study reveals that ethnic density and neighbourhood quality overlap strongly among majority Belgians and the Moroccan second generation, albeit with opposite sign, such that the absence of ethnic minorities goes together with more favourable neighbourhood structure, while concentrations of Moroccans occur in the least attractive neighbourhoods. Among the Turkish and Italian second generation, we find, as expected, that the effects of ethnic density depend on neighbourhood stability and quality. These results confirm differential trajectories of integration of the three largest ethnic minorities in Belgium."

Transnationalism, identities' dynamics and cultural diversification in urban post-migratory situations

Year 2009
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
TRICUD aims at better understanding some of the reciprocal relationships between migration and change. The principal objective is indeed to better understand how migration transforms both sending societies in the South and receiving societies in the North. It is widely acknowledged that international migration has always been a cause as well as a result of economic, political, social and cultural change. It is a key dimension of globalisation. It affects, the dynamics of identities, the process of cultural diversification and social representations in urban settings both in the North and South. Migration has also prompted the formation of transnational social spaces connecting home and destination countries. This phenomenon is observable between Belgium and some of the countries of origin of its migrant population. The Democratic Republic of Congo and Morocco are in this respect two strategic case-studies. In order to better understand the dynamics of identities, the processes of cultural diversification and the dynamics of representations in urban settings affected by international migration and immigrants’ transnational practices both in Belgium and in two immigrant sending countries, the research will be carried out along three main directions, which consist in the 3 research projects are the post-migratory city and transnational flows, the dynamics of identities and the process of cultural diversification.

Transnational family networks: an analysis of care-giving arrangements within migrant families

Year 2011
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
This project aims to further develop theoretical and empirical knowledge on the interrelationship between geographic distance, care practices and family relations. The specific question this study addresses is the extent to which transnational adult migrants are able to exchange care and support with their geographically distant parents, and the specific role that intrafamilial dynamics play in the exchange of care between adult migrants, their siblings and their parents. This will be done by analyzing the experiences of Dominican migrants in Belgium and their geographically distant kin. The study will focus on three types of care-giving arrangements: long distance care-giving (provision of support from a distance) ; aged migration (permanent or temporary migration of dependent elderly parents in order to be cared for by their child(ren) in the host country) ; and migrants repatriation (migrants moving back home to care for their parents). Particular attention will be paid to gendered dynamics and power relations within the families, as well as other structural factors that influence decisions regarding each type of care-giving arrangement. Fieldwork will include semi-structured interviews and participant observation with Dominican migrants residing in Belgium, their parents (father and/or mother) and up to 2 key siblings.
