Insecure lives: Irregular Migration and Precarious Labour in Finland (INSECURE)

Year 2014
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Project description: INSECURE is a multi-sited, multi-method study of irregular migration in Finland. It provides an understanding of how mobility controls, employment and citizenship regimes affect migrants’ social and material conditions in Finland and produce everyday insecurity of existence and marginalisation. The project obtains knowledge on how migrants cope with precarious living and working conditions. INSECURE analyses the ways in which irregular migration is framed as a security question in Finnish policy documents. The project produces applicable empirical knowledge to assist policy-making in confronting the question of irregular migration in Finland. By investigating the situation of vulnerable subjects excluded from the realm of citizenship, the project breaks new ground in revealing what security de facto means in contemporary societies characterised by multiple forms of mobilities, including irregular migration.

Migration for whose benefit? Pakistani and Indian migrant communities’ remittance sending behavior and integration in Finland and Sweden. (89 500 €)

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Project description: The aim of this doctoral research is to explore contemporary migration and remittance sending behaviors and their impacts on socio-professional integration of migrants from Pakistan and India in Finland and Sweden. The research assumes that distinct groups of migrants carry dissimilar cultural obligations upon migration, which emphasizes the need to compare migrants from different places of origin. As for the integration process, it is argued that acquiring a job to earn and send money back home promotes initial integration but minimizes consumption and the search for support from various compatriots tends to weaken the integration process in the long run. Migrants pushed by stronger obligations to remit spend a fairly longer time doing odd jobs than those with mild compulsions. Not pushed to work longer hours in unskilled jobs, the latter can dedicate more time to finishing their University degrees, learning the language, and eventually turn out to become an entrepreneur or acquire a professional job. The empirical data collection entails participant observations and semi-structured interviews in Malmö and Stockholm in Sweden and Helsinki and Turku in Finland. The primary foci of this research are those migrants who entered on a student visa. This multidisciplinary research addresses an understudied aspect of migrant behaviour, both in Finland and in neighbouring Sweden, namely the relationship between remittance sending and migrant integration. The study asks, who really benefits from migration. Is it the migrant himself/herself or the relatives of the migrant back home who receive the bulk of remittances? The research fills theoretical and empirical gaps regarding different migrant groups' behaviour in remittance vs. integration.

TRANS-NET

Year 2008
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The objective of this project is to clarify and compare the complex process of transnationalism. During the past few years, transnationalism has attained ever greater importance and topicality due to the increase in transnational mobility of people. In order to attain a comprehensive and valid insight into the topic in question we adopt a multilevel approach. The research conducted in Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, India, Morocco, Turkey, and the United Kingdom addresses both policy documents and individual migrants, including labour migrants; posted workers; family-based migrants; humanitarian migrants, and foreign degree students. The focus lies on their transnational networks and political, economic, and socio-cultural activities. Moreover, the topic of transnational empowering is of central importance. The following transnational spaces will be taken as the main units to analyse the border-crossing relationships: Estonia/Finland, India/UK, Morocco/France, and Turkey/Germany. Research data will be gathered through content analysis of policy documents and semi-structured and life-course interviews among a selected sample of respondents in each participating country.

Inequalities in Motion: Transnational Families in Estonia and Finland.

Year 2015
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Summary in English not available, Summary in Finnish: Hankkeen julkinen kuvaus: Hankkeessa tarkastellaan Viron ja Suomen välistä muuttoliikettä ja pendelöintiä sekä näihin liittyvää eriarvoisuutta. Viro ja Suomi muodostavat aidosti ylirajaisen alueen: kymmenet tuhannet ihmiset ylittävät säännöllisesti Suomenlahden, jotkut jopa viikottain, toiset muutaman kerran vuodessa. Ylirajainen liikkuvuus ei muuta ainoastaan ulkomailla työskentelevien elämää. Yksilökeskeisen näkökulman muuttoliikkeeseen on yhä suuremmassa määrin korvannut tietoisuus siitä, että kaikilla muuttajilla on perhesidoksia, riippumatta sitä muuttavatko he yksin vai läheistensä kanssa. Hankkeessa keskitymme perheiden pärjäämiseen uusissa olosuhteissa sekä liikkuvuuden subjektiivisiin ja tunneperäisiin ulottuvuuksiin: miten ylirajainen perhe-elämä ja siihen kytkeytyvä eriarvoisuus koetaan ja miten eri perheenjäsenet tästä kertovat. Metodologisesti lähestymistapamme on innovatiivinen: näkökulma on etnografinen, mutta tutkijat käyttävät useita eri menetelmiä osallistuvasta havainnoinnista ja tutkittavien mukana liikkumisesta lasten sadutukseen ja piirrättämiseen. Taiteilijat panostavat monipuolisten visuaalisten metodien muodossa, ja journalisti tuo mukaan yksilöiden näkökulman ja perheiden tarinat muutosta. Tutkittavien ihmisten ja perheiden määrä on rajallinen, ja yhteistyötä samojen perheiden kanssa tehdään koko kolmen vuoden projektin ajan. Hankkeen tuloksia esitellään suurelle yleisölle paitsi tekstien (artikkelit, kirjat, blogi) myös dokumenttifilmin, (sarja)kuvien ja katutaiteen keinoin.Tieteen, taiteen ja journalismin välisiä sekä kansallisia rajoja ylittävä tutkimushanke ja –asetelma tuottaa uudenlaista ymmärrystä liikkuvuuteen ja ylirajaiseen perhe-elämään kytkeytyvästä eriarvoisuudesta. Ylirajaisuuden subjektiiviseen ja emotionaaliseen puoleen paneudutaan sensitiivisen tutkimusotteen ja innovatiivisten työskentelymenetelmien avulla. Tuloksena on monipuolisia visuaalisia ja taiteellisia tuotoksia. Tavoitteena on saavuttaa myös laaja yleisö molemmissa tutkittavissa maissa.

Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
MINDb4ACT is a collaborative project participated by 7 LEAs, think-tanks, reserach centres, universities, industry associations and NGO based in 10 Member States (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain and United Kingdom). The project will align its research priorities with some of the most relevant issues already identified by the European Commission: Priority 1. Systematizing the available knowledge and expertise to support strategic decision-making Priority 2. Enhancing interdisciplinary fieldwork on terrorists' recruiting grounds, socialisation and techniques Priority 3. Using big data in order to analyse the information related to the communication practices of violent radicalisation Priority 4.Improving existing links between academia including non-EU researchers, policy-makers and other stakeholders MINDb4ACT will contribute to such priorities for the improvement of current counter-violent extremism policies (CVEs) in the countries represented in the consortium (Austria, Belgium Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy Poland, Spain and United Kingdom) and the generation of new ones connecting through collaboration ecosystems (innovative, open, participatory, user-centred environments) to co-design interventions such as research actions, exchanges, strategic-policy exercises, training courses and pilot projects based on social innovation and civic engagement schemes (a community of practice of 1,500 people). All actions will be developed in 5 specific domains: prisons and judiciary system; migration hotspots and asylum centres, schools, cities (peri-urban contexts) and the Internet and media. A special contribution of the project will be the integration of technology based practical solutions with the contribution of the industry. As mentioned in the call, MINDb4ACT will NOT be 'focused on studying the phenomenon of radicalization' but focused on 'developing policy recommendations and practical solutions for end-users'.

The Cultural Experience of International Students: Narratives from North and South Europe

Year 2016
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Young people are travelling more than ever before. Studying abroad is a growing and institutionalized practice, as in the Erasmus program. To find out what they’re getting out of this travelling, we have to get them to tell their stories and explore the meanings of their experience within the broader context of their lives. The results of this comparative study can usefully orient EU policymakers in sustaining young people in their transitional challenges – becoming adults, Europeans and citizens of a globalized world – fostering ongoing education in cultural diversity enhancing life for all Europeans. The key question is if and how students’ experiences abroad are contributing to overcoming cultural and social boundaries. Using a mixed-method and interdisciplinary approach, this innovative study investigates the meanings given by a group of 60 international students to their educational, cultural and overall life experience abroad (Finland and Italy). Through analysis of autobiographical-autoethnographical essays, ethnographical observations, focus groups and in-depth interviews I will address topics connected with self-construction processes in another culture: family of origin and its economic, social and cultural capital; perception of European social and cultural identity and sense of belonging to a “Cosmopolitan Generation”; fundamental cultural objects shaping the idea of Italy (South) Finland (North) and Europe in general; interaction with locals and involvement in the host culture; key life passages during students’ stay abroad. The narrative approach yields a clear, in-depth and comprehensive vision of what students abroad are actually doing and what they think about it. Beyond quantitative data, qualitative empirical material of this kind is rare; findings will offer unique insights on human life-span development, cultural globalization, social mobility, migration, tourism and education, enhancing intra-European education and mobility policies.

Abstract
There is a consensus that universities have an important role to play in the reconstruction of conflict-torn societies, and that is where competent scholars are needed. However, very often, not enough attention is placed on the important role of universities and academia in emergencies. Integration of recently arrived refugee students and scholars into the European academic community serves thus long-term capacity-building in their home countries. Universities in different European countries have been active in initiating support measures for threatened students and scholars and in some countries, such as in Finland and Germany, national level actors have also been active in coordination of the support measures. However, a European-level forum for the higher education sector to focus on this specific field has been lacking. The GREET project addresses this need by providing a platform for actors on institutional, national and international level to join their expertise. GREET's main goal is to strengthen European cooperation and information sharing on existing and good practices in the integration of highly skilled refugees in the higher education system and labour market in host countries. It aims to achieve this goal through providing networking, training and mutual learning opportunities for refugee support structures at national and institutional level in 9 European countries. Taking as its basis the existing good practices from Germany and Finland, the project will scale them up to the European level through peer learning activities and a series of webinars, which will serve for dissemination, exchange and mapping different support needs in Europe. The project results will be disseminated to the wider European higher education community through a big stakeholder forum and an online repository, targeting both practitioners and policymakers at European and national level.
