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.

Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Operational management of the second generation Schengen Information System (SIS II) which entered into operation on 09 April 2013 replacing SIS1. SIS II, the largest information system for public security in Europe, allows information exchanges between national border control, customs and police authorities ensuring that the free movement of people within the EU can take place in a safe environment. It also contains alerts on missing persons, in particular children, as well as information on certain property, such as banknotes, cars, vans, firearms and identity documents that may have been stolen, misappropriated or lost. Currently SIS II is used by 29 countries (25 EU MS + 4 Associated Countries). 25 EU: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Associated Countries connected to SIS II are: Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. Statistics are available to the public as analyses presented in studies on annual basis. **Statistics of interest:** Refusals of entry -> statistics on alerts art 24 SIS II Regulation “refused entry or stay in the Schengen area when the authorities had already made a decision that they should not enter”

MIPEX (Migrant Integration Policy Index)

Year 2014
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The Migrant Integration Policy Index (MIPEX) is a unique tool which measures policies to integrate migrants. The MIPEX aims to address this by providing a comprehensive tool which can be used to assess, compare and improve integration policy. The index is a useful tool to evaluate and compare what governments are doing to promote the integration of migrants in all the countries analysed. The tool allows you to dig deep into the multiple factors that influence the integration of migrants into society and allows you to use the full MIPEX results to analyse and assess past and future changes in policy. The MIPEX includes 38 countries in order to provide a view of integration policies across a broad range of differing environments. Countries included are all EU Member States, Australia, Canada, Iceland, Japan, South Korea, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland, Turkey and the USA. 167 policy indicators have been developed to create a rich, multi-dimensional picture of migrants’ opportunities to participate in society. MIPEX addresses 8 policy areas of integration: Labour Market Mobility, Family Reunion, Education, Political Participation, Long-term Residence, Access to Nationality, Anti-discrimination and Health. Thanks to the relevance and rigor of its indicators, the MIPEX has been recognised as a common quick reference guide across Europe. Policymakers, NGOs, researchers, and European and international institutions are using its data not only to understand and compare national integration policies, but also to improve standards for equal treatment.
