Patterns and management of ethnic relations in the Western Balkans and the Baltic States

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
‘Patterns and management of ethnic relations in the Western Balkans and the Baltic States’ This study will compare the management of ethnic relations in two Western Balkan states (Serbia and Croatia) with the management of ethnic relations in two Baltic republics (Latvia and Estonia). It will concentrate on: (a) the legal and institutional infrastructures on minority rights; (b) the impact of domestic and external actors on the management of ethnic relations. This research is placed inside the framework of the EU’s enlargement. Latvia and Estonia have been EU member-states since 2004. Croatia joined the EU in 2013 whereas accession negotiations with Serbia commenced in October 2011. By conducting research on two different post-Communist settings (two post-Yugoslav and two post-Soviet states) this comparative project will provide new insights in conflict resolution and the management of ethnic relations in the new and the aspiring EU member-states. Research questions: (a) How do the Western Balkan and Baltic models for managing ethnic relations compare to each other and to European standards? (b) How does the intersection between domestic and external actors impact on the management of ethnic relations in the Western Balkans and the Baltic States?

Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The project will examine the influence of border security issues on the situation at Russian borders with EU members (Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland) and on the EU-Russian relations on the whole. The author would like to estimate the seriousness of border security challenges (drug-trafficking, illegal migration, smuggling in consumer goods, other kinds of transborder crime etc.) and adequacy of their perceptions by decision-makers and public opinion. The project will be resulted in recommendations aiming to improve EU and Russian border policies in respect to the other sides.

Eastern European Borders Annual Risk Analysis (EB-RAN)

Year 2013
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
EB-RAN (Eastern European Borders Risk Analysis Network) statistical data from Belarus, Moldova and Ukraine are available from 2010. The core of the overview are EB-RAN and monthly statistical data of neighbouring FRAN (Frontex Risk Analusis Network) members: Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania (only common borders, or borders with the Russian Federation) covering the year previous to the publication. Six key indicators of illegal migration are measured: (1) detections of illegal border-crossing, (2) detections of facilitators, (3) detections of illegal stay, (4) refusals of entry; (5) detections of document fraud and (6) asylum applications. The data in the report are presented in several charts and maps.

SIS II - Second generation Schengen Information System

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”

Culturally Composite Elites, Regime Changes and Social Crises in Multi-Ethnic and Multi-Confessional Eastern Europe. (The Carpathian Basin and the Baltics in Comparison - cc. 1900-1950)

Year 2009
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The project is multi-disciplinary by character. It focuses upon socio-historical processes of the transformation and 'circulation' of educated and ruling elites in several uniquely composite (both multi-ethnic and multi-confessional) East European regional or national societies, having experienced a number of radical changes of social and political regime as well as state souvereignty in the first half of the 20th century. The historical scope of the study extends from post-feudalism to communism. Societies involved comprise Hungary, Slovakia, Transylvania, Voivodina in the Carpathian Basin, Latvia and Estonia in the Baltics. The study draws upon sociological survey methods applied to historically successive elite brackets in form of exhaustive or quasi-exhaustive computerized prosopographical data banks, based on standardized individual biographies of elite members (as permitted by mostly archival sources to be exploited). The main targets would include secondary school graduates, students and graduates of higher education, the main intellectual professions (like doctors and lawyers.), the political power elites as well as 'reputational elites' - those cited in biographical dictionaries. The information fed into our data banks help to clarify thanks to various procedures of multi-variate statistical schemes the contrasting socio-cultural selection and recruitment of elite members, their educational path from primary to higher education, their professional career, intellectual creativity as well as socio-political standing and orientation. This is the first time that large region- or country-wide elite clusters are submitted to systematic socio-historical analyses, covering simultaneously all or most markets of activity and self-assertion of educated clusters in a vast international and comparative perspective related to culturally composite societal formations.

Enacting European Citizenship

Year 2008
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The consortium assesses European citizenship as enacted by citizens as well as non-citizens (third country nationals, refugees, illegal aliens). By investigating what we call ‘acts o citizenship’ we aim to determine the meaning given to the idea of European citizenship by those whose acts create new forms of identification. We recognize that in a complex space such as the European Union, acts of citizenship—those acts through which subjects constitute themselves as European—will vary considerably reflecting various trajectories, territories, and cultures. Thus the consortium involves three original member states (UK, Belgium and the Netherlands), two new member states (Hungary and Latvia) and a candidate state (Turkey). The focus on acts of citizenship has several advantages. First, subjects and actors need not be conceived in advance as to what their status is or even the kind of entities they are since they can be individuals, states, groups and other legal or quasi-legal entities or persons. To recognize certain acts as acts of citizenship requires understanding that these acts produce subjects as citizens. Second, acts that articulate claims and produce claimants create new sites of belonging and identification. These sites are different than traditional sites of citizenship such as voting, social security, and military obligation though these continue to be important. Third, acts of citizenship stretch across boundaries and involve multiple scales of belonging and identification. The focus on acts of citizenship that produce new subjects, sites and scales of citizenship is therefore a vital concern for understanding how European citizenship is enacted. Fourth, by investigating acts we shift focus from what people say (opinion, perception, attitude surveys) to what people do, which is an important supplement, and under certain circumstances, corrective, to studies that concern themselves with what people say about their European citizenship and identification.

Youth mobility: maximising opportunities for individuals, labour markets and regions in Europe

Year 2015
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Research on international youth mobility has been fragmented, mostly based on relatively small samples and case studies. YMOBILITY develops a comprehensive research programme which addresses the following: • Identifying, and quantifying, the main types of international youth mobility in the EU, and their key characteristics. Particular attention will be given to differences between and within three main types: highly skilled, less skilled and students • Understanding what determines which individuals do and which do not participate in international mobility as personal and professional development strategies: their motives, migration channels and information sources • Analysing the individual outcomes in terms of both employability and careers (skills and competences) and non-economic terms (welfare and identities). • Analysing the territorial outcomes for the regions of both origin and destination, in economic, demographic and cultural terms • Differentiating between short-term and long-term outcomes, taking into account return migration and future intentions to migrate. • Identifying implications for policies in migration but also of education, the economy and housing The research will utilise existing secondary data for the whole of the EU, but will mainly rely on primary quantitative data (large-scale surveys to be undertaken by polling agency) and qualitative data (interviews with migrants and returned migrants). The study will focus on 9 countries representing different contexts for youth mobility: Romania, Slovakia and Latvia as sources of emigration and return; the UK and Sweden as destinations for migrants; Germany, Italy, Ireland and Spain as both major destinations and countries of origin. The policy analysis will be informed by interviews undertaken with key informants, such as migrant associations and policy-makers. Experimental methods will be used to assess how individuals will respond to different scenarios of future economic and social change.

Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Main objectives of Sawe project are to bring researchers to the public, increase awareness of researcher’s profession, an important role in society and the impact of their work on our safe daily live with special attention to inspire the young to embark science careers. Sawe activities will bring closer to the public, especially to youngster, also the human, caring face of scientists with sense for humor and fun. For that purpose, we will implement awareness campaign with pre-events, “Stand-up Science” in 2018, 2019 and public-call for (pre)schoolchildren. On the last September, Fridays in 2018 (att. Cultural Heritage) and 2019 ERN will be organized with renewed programs in the festive and fun atmosphere. All Sawe events program activities aim at offering the public at large especially the young an opportunity to cooperate and socialize with researchers in a relaxed atmosphere. They include experiments, presentations, astronomy observations, workshops, researchers’ rock bands performed by researchers and students. Rawe ERN events will take place in Ljutomer, Maribor, Brežice, Koper, and Izola. Traditional cooperation of the primary and secondary schools’ winning teams of research and innovative projects in the frame of Youth for Maribor Progress (financed by Maribor Municipality) enable most promising youngsters to inspire their fellows and connect with the real scientists. The »European corners« will be in the heart of every RN location: Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellows' witnesses, information how one can become a researcher, EC’s various actions, programs, actions (incl. HRS4R, RESAVER) to present how EU cares about its researchers. Finally, yet importantly, the impact assessment includes pre-study and research prior and after events using a paper-pencil method. The impact assessment foresees intercultural comparison of results after using the same methodology as selected ERN leading partners: Prona-Montenegro, the Maastricht University and the University of Latvia.
