Civil society actors in travel & migration

Civil society actors in travel and migration are actors like non-governmental and non-profit organisations, faith-based organisations, foundations, migrant associations, voluntary organisations, activist networks and social or political movements. They operate in sending as well as in transit and destination contexts. These actors fill the socio-political space between private and state providers of migration infrastructures on the one hand, and irregular service providers on the other. In practice, overlaps occur: Civil society actors may provide services on behalf of governmental actors but also contravene state policies. Examples are voluntary actors providing clothes, food, medical assistance and shelter along migratory routes, humanitarians rescuing migrants at sea or diaspora organisations giving advice or sending remittances to aspiring migrants in their countries of origin.

Civil society and new migrants in superdiverse contexts

Year 2015
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
This project investigates the role of civil society organisations (CSOs) for new migrants in superdiverse contexts. It explores whether CSOs are instrumental in the building of social relations during their settlement process. This social aspect of settlement, also described as social integration, is crucial regarding other aspects of settlement such as access to education, housing and the labour market. The project also looks at the role of CSOs regarding the relationships which long-term residents, both of ethnic majority and minority backgrounds, form with newcomers, addressing issues surrounding integration as ‘two-way-process’. The project will lead to novel findings because: • Rather than focussing on established ethnic minorities, it investigates patterns of integration of people originating from relatively new source countries who settle into already superdiverse contexts • It is situated within an emerging research field on new conditions of superdiversity which have rarely been explored systematically • It goes beyond existing quantitative work on civil society participation • It will develop theory around social contact, social capital and integration nuancing current thinking around the role of CSOs in settlement Superdiversity has resulted from changing immigration patterns into Europe, with people entering cities in substantial numbers, and from far more countries of origin than ever before. This has resulted in a condition of more ethnicities, languages, religions, migration experiences, work and living conditions and legal statuses than many cities have ever faced (Vertovec 2007). By way of in-depth ethnographic fieldwork and interviews in two UK urban neighbourhoods, and drawing on existing theory, method and policy, the project will elicit how new migrants settle in such contexts, how long-term residents deal with unprecedented population changes, and what the role of CSOs is in this process.

Year 2008
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
GEMMA’s specific objective is to improve access to synthesised EC-funded Gender and Migration (G&M) research results for the particular groups of policy-makers and civil society organisations (CSOs) at national level in 5 countries. This objective responds to: (i) the need for national level strategy development to promote working cultures between researchers, policy-makers and CSOs and; (ii) the need to enhance the quantity and quality of synthesised research results for policy makers and civil society. The expected results are: (i) 5 national strategies developed to enhance networking and communication between researchers and policy-makers in the field of G&M through Policy-Making and Research National Action Plans (PMR-NAPs); (ii) 5 national strategies developed to enhance networking and communication between researchers and CSOs working in the field of G&M through Civil Society and Research National Action Plans (CSR-NAPs); (iii) increased systematic dissemination and valorisation of synthesised EC-funded research results and related policy recommendations in G&M to policy-makers and CSOs in 5 countries and national languages. The main tasks to achieve result 1 will be: (i) design a Policy Briefing Sheet (PBS) template that will be used to synthesise the research results from 20 FP5 and FP6 projects regarding G&M; (ii) organise 1 Policy Dialogue and Networking Workshop in each country and produce the PMR-NAPS; (iii) organise Validation Workshops for PBS and NAP finalisation; (iv) horizontal analysis of the PBS in order to identify horizontal conclusions and recommendations for the European Commission, researchers, policy-makers and CSOs. The main tasks to achieve result 2 will be: (i) disseminate PBS to at least 20 CSOs in each of GEMMA’s 5 Member States; (ii) organise 1 Civil Society Dialogue and Networking Workshop in each country (CS-DNWs) in the 5 partner countries; (iii) organise one validation workshop in the 5 partner countries to finalise the CSR-NAPs; (

Cooperation between government and civil society in the management of migration: Trends, opportunities and challenges in Europe and North America

Authors Sarah Spencer, Nicola Delvino
Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Across Europe and North America, government at all levels is cooperating with civil society organisations in the management of migration and in the resettlement and integration of refugees and migrants. This paper explores some of the issues that are raised by these relationships and are addressed in the academic and policy literature. While cooperation between government and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) per se has long been the focus of scholarship, cooperation in the migration field is far less well explored. Yet, notwithstanding significant variation in the extent and forms of cooperation, governments rely on NGOs to fulfil a range of functions in the implementation of migration, resettlement and integration policies and to a certain extent in the policy development process. Collaboration, moreover, can bring significant challenges: working relationships can be harmonious and long standing, but can equally be fragile and carry economic and political costs for both parties. This paper addresses what we know of recent trends in relation to cooperation in the migration field; the tiers of government where it is found and the dimensions of migration that it addresses; setting that in the context of what is known more broadly of recent trends in government-civil society relationships. It explores what motivates governments and civil society to work together, the forms of cooperation, and the challenges that arise in their working relationships.

Roma, Gypsies and Travellers' social in/exclusion in European urban camps

Year 2016
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The project aims to analyse the role of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in Roma, Gypsies and Travellers’ (RGTs) in/exclusion in European urban camps. Triangulating individual semi-structured interviews, oral histories, archival research, and interpretative policy analysis, the interdisciplinary project combines Sociological, Socio-Anthropological and Socio-Historical approaches, contemplating two UK and two Italian superdiverse urban contexts as case studies. It contributes to three research streams: housing exclusion; RGT policy, and camps as socio-spatial configurations, and inaugurates a new interdisciplinary research field on Urban Camps. Dr Sigona, who will act as the Supervisor, is a leading scholar in migration and Roma research in Europe; his expertise is particularly complementary with Dr Picker research skills and knowledge coming from ten years of Sociological field-based research on Roma spatial segregation in five European countries. Due to the excellent quality of infrastructure, scholarly research and staff, the School of Social Policy and the Institute for Research into Superdiversity at the University of Birmingham are the most appropriate academic environment for Dr Picker to become, after the Fellowship, a leading social science scholar in the European Research Area.

Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
«Snapshots From The Borders» is a 3-years project, co-funded by the European Union and run by 36 partners, border local authorities and civil society organisations, led by the Lampedusa and Linosa municipality. The main general objective of the project is the improvement of the critical understanding of European and local decision and law makers, civil servants, opinion leaders, public opinion and citizens about the topic of migration flows towards European borders. Our aim is strengthening a new horizontal, active network of cities and towns directly facing migration flows at EU borders, as a way to promote more and more effective policy coherence at all levels. The final perspective and framework is to achieve UN Sustainable Development Goals.This report has been carried out through the analysis of secondary statistical data sources available at the national and local levels; the results of different empirical investigations undertaken by the Immigration Observatory of Tenerife in the last 15 years; and 23 semi-structured interviews with university experts, representatives from immigrant associations, professionals from NGOs, immigrants and their children, political representatives, technicians from the local governments, and participants in social movements linked to the defence of human rights. All the interviews have been recorded on video and a script with questions has been used, based on this report’s structure, but with the questions adapted to the profiles of each person interviewed.

"The Invisible Politics of Religion: Catholicism, Third Sector and Territory in Southern Europe"

Year 2012
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
'This research project aims at contributing to the debate over religion and politics in the EU by considering the role played by Catholicism in shaping civil society mobilizations in Southern European regions. The underlying theoretical issues of this project do refer to the classical debates about a) the weberian perspective on the elective affinities between religious ethics, economic and politics; b) the role of culture and social capital in the regional economic development; c) the neo-institutionalist debates about the interaction between the EU, state, substate public authorities and civil society actors. The project will focus on the Catholic third sector. Empirical support will be taken from fieldwork research carried out in three Southern European regions: the Basque Autonomous Community (Spain), Aquitaine (France) and Emilia-Romagna (Italy). Overall hypothesis: despite the institutional and societal decline of Catholicism, religious actors do have not renounced to interfere in public debates. Rather, they have renewed their repertoire of action when becoming civil society actors among others in a pluralistic environment. Far from being confined to the private sphere, religion still plays a significant role in the European public sphere, either as an identity resource, an ethical reference or a ritual provider. As an ethical reference, Catholicism may bias civil society mobilisations towards more caring and community-oriented dynamics and outcomes. As an organization, the Catholic Church defends both general causes and its own interests, and is involved in territorial governance networks associating civil society actors, private bodies and public authorities. This hypothesis will be tested through three case-studies: a) Historical legacy: Catholicism and the emergence of territorial social economies; b) The Catholic third sector and the issue of immigration; c) The Catholic third sector’s mediation in ethnonational conflicts.'

Abstract
MIGLINK is a Swedish-Mexican-Turkish Research Links consortium specialised on migration and development. MIGLINK aims to examine the development of an incipient global governance framework for migration with a focus on the role of civil society. GFMD, initiated at the UN global dialogue High Level Dialogue on Migration and Development in 2006, is the most inclusive state-led forum between governments on developing policies for international migration. Since its inception, so-called "Civil Society Days" were organized as a side event to the GFMD meetings. The consortium follows preparation, agenda2012) setting, debates and outcomes of upcoming GFMD meetings among to contextualise them in historical and geographical perspective, aiming to identify the role of civil society in global policy making through the GFMD. This is matched by examination of the parallel development of a global movement of civil society in fora outside the formal framework of the GFMD and the formation of alternative agendas for global governance on migration. The consortium links interdisciplinary knowledge on the historical development of global governance on migration with a focus on conditions for sustainable development, poverty reduction, global labour and human rights. Dr. Stefan Rother, South Asian Studies at Freiburg University, with a long standing research trajectory in the subject area, joined the project in 2015.

From Refugee Support to Escape Aid: Refugee Protection as a Conflicting Issue in the German Migration Regime and the Role of Civil Society Initiatives

Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
"The research project From Refugee Support to Escape Aid reflects the problem of the so called asylum paradox and how civil society actors deal with its consequences. Many states grant refugee rights and Germany considers the right to claim asylum a fundamental right and enacts international law principles of refugee protection. However, to effectively claim those rights, refugees and asylum seekers are forced to cross borders illegally and to get into risky situations, because of the lack of legal entry options. Therefore, access to refugee protection has become a conflicting issue in Germany, especially since the situation has escalated in 2015/2016. The research project analyzes these conflicts with a focus on civil society initiatives that mobilize for the safe entry of refugees. Therefore, the project investigates strategies and action approaches that civil society initiatives develop in the context of migration and asylum regimes to advocate for and to facilitate refugee protection – thereby giving escape aid – in the light of limited entry channels and humanitarian crises.

The refugee crisis has shown that civil society plays an important role in overcoming immigration and integration challenges. In autumn and winter In 2015, without civic engagement in Austria, it would be a humanitarian disaster. have come to a disaster. Civil society made particularly high contributions during this period, be it in the first care, in the organization of refugee accommodation, in integration measures and in the mobilization and coordination of voluntary help. In addition, civil society actors have It also shaped public opinion and promoted the networking of volunteers. It can be assumed that integration without further contributions from civil society and its Organizations will not be possible in the future. In the present project was Therefore, the following questions were investigated:  What has civil society in the autumn of 2015 to tackle the so-called refugee crisis and how was this achieved?  How was the work of civil society perceived by Syrian refugees?  What can be done to tackle further challenges of immigration and Integration to be learned? All these problems or learning opportunities must be considered in the light of crisis and the high performance of civil society. A big challenge for the organizations was the lack of information and changing conditions . The social polarization, legal or non-compliance with laws by political instances and deficits of welfare state tasks were burdensome. In part, civil society has Tasks of the state taken over. Where work was done on behalf of the public sector, There was often a lack of financial planning certainty and late payments for paid Job. The situation of asylum seekers was due to the lack of political burden or readiness additionally burdened. The range of offered services was extremely wide, beside the first supply and Acute aid includes the organization of housing, training or leisure activities, Childcare, translation work, legal advice, assistance with authorities, health care and much more. The willingness to volunteer in the autumn of 2015 never been on scale. Volunteers have worked in almost all areas of refugee work involved. Many volunteers became self-organized and spontaneous, much of it though helped in the context of existing NPOs or newly founded associations. For the civil society Organizations, the cooperation of these many people was absolutely necessary in order to offer a level of service. With much commitment and empathy was not only a high level of help but also a political statement for humanity and tolerance. puts. The management of the many helpers was under the given dynamic framework. But also a challenge. Such was a forward-looking demand planning due to external factors, such as the opening the closure of borders or the provision of accommodation and transport facilities. hardly possible. Overall, the NPOs have managed to be very flexible Requirements to respond. ________________________________________ Page 11 2 The mobilization and extraction of helpers has transcended all organizations mostly good, fast and unbureaucratic works, including by means of intensive and effective Use of social media. So the performances of the volunteers could despite a decline the commitment to be maintained during the winter. Due to the high and unpredictable needs were broad, unspecific measures for recovery set by volunteers. This enabled enough helpers to be mobilized, many but it also came to a temporary oversupply of volunteers. In the acute phase, there were often limited opportunities for the selection of volunteers, there were hardly any selection procedures possible and also the possibilities for orientation and training of the helpers were limited and there was sometimes a mis-match between activities and demands of the helpers. At the beginning of the acute phase in September Often there was a lack of clear division of competences between the main and voluntary workers. on the other hand This gave rise to great scope for the volunteers, who often organize themselves. structures, and set themselves up in a mix of the experienced and the new. and co-ordinated and supplemented in their work. Often these margins were also the starting point for the creation of new initiatives. The transfer of responsibility to the volunteers worked well, especially when Defined clear goals and contact persons . Further important were home formation, feedback channels and the involvement of volunteers in the design of the ACTION. If this was not the case, there was overburdening, frustrations or even conflicts with existing or newly introduced procedural and decision-making structures. Another challenge was the high turnover rate among volunteers as well in some cases among the full-time coordinators. This made it difficult to establish structured communication channels and information sharing, leading to inefficiencies in the organization of the organization and trouble for some volunteers. This was more established NPOs. Basic initiatives that shaped their structures around current goals were sometimes very successful rapidly build functional communication channels. Volunteers as well as full-time employees were often confronted with enormous burdens . Measures against overloading and supervision offers and other forms of Support was therefore important for all employees. They were much appreciated and would have can be offered earlier and stronger. In addition to the activity itself, identification in (social) media of the organizations and in the teams for motivation. There were big differences in the structure and culture of the organizations involved . Here is observable a continuum along the difference between hierarchy / structure versus flexibility openness . The rather hierarchically organized task forces were fast Make decisions, cooperate quickly with similar organizations and they could to use the structures prepared for disasters. Even established aid organizations These organizations first had to build them up by learning by doing. New founded basic initiative In turn, tives had the advantage of flexibility and openness to spontaneous decisions. For some volunteers, these structures were motivating, others felt clearer Structures more comfortable. In almost all organizations, however, was made of structural changes reported that relief organizations were confronted with the need for more flexible areas. Basic initiatives often made comparatively rapid development into stronger ones Structures through. The organizations generally have challenges of very rapid Size growth and the need for organizational flexibility are surprisingly well whelmed. Overwork was dealt with, new staff hired and deployed quickly, consciously temporarily suspended, but at the same time preserving necessary structures. Almost all organizations report clear learning steps. ________________________________________ Page 12 3 Cooperation within civil society basically worked well, as a rule the better, the closer the partners were to each other. The cooperation between structural It was sometimes harder for different actors to play different roles Standards in terms of reliability, responsiveness, scope for individual etc. For cooperation with the public sector, there were different statements, some This was described as successful, but partly also criticized, especially the non-perception of public-sector tasks. The establishment of the body of a Refugee coordinator through the city of Vienna was very well received, supported the bundling of the aid offer, especially through the central information point. Although the work was perceived by many to be very satisfying, so too was it extremely stressful . For one thing, many full-time staff and volunteers were too long in the "emergency fall mode ", they were working on the limit. There were volunteers who quit for their job or had given up their studies, engagement was at the rate of 15h or more per day No rarity. Emotional stress was also noticed by almost everyone but more of people who were not trained for this type of activity. The interviewed Syrian refugees appreciate the comparatively good treatment in Austria. rich, civil society services and social protection - if they are already in their enjoyment come. At the same time all report significant problems, especially in relation on long and uncertain procedures, the situation and supply situation in emergency quarters, German courses, difficulties finding accommodation and finding work after receipt of asylum Scheides. Some are also disappointed, as they had higher expectations of Austria, not lastly due to false promises by tugs. In general, the growth of civic engagement has been positive for the image of society Civil society and NPOs, for the self-image and personal development of many Participants, for contacts between natives and asylum seekers and of course for the maintenance of the supply. Socio-politically it is still too critical loading that quantitative and qualitative standards reflect the will and ability of private actors to were left to the public. Responsible people thus have their own (temporary) physical and material costs) closed the gap left by the state. A professional and resource-backed universal service by the public Hand and NPOs could provide security. Civil society would have scope for tasks integration, including the establishment of a close-knit network of direct contacts between the immigrants and the local population. Here too can play an important role for larger NPOs, namely the support of local grassroots initiatives, the To do integration work. "At the moment (November 2015) I feel like the whole of Austria is civil society. The state has withdrawn completely, exaggeratedly said "(I 17).

Integration and International Migration : Pathways and Integration Policies

Year 2007
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The INTEGRIM research training programme aims to establish a multi-site network of early stage researchers (predominantly PhD students) at the eight partner institutions fostering a multidisciplinary research career on International Migration and Integration within the European context. The network will apply a qualification framework with a compatible set of qualifications/knowledge/skills across the national systems for graduates of the INTEGRIM programme. Besides, the INTEGRIM research training programme will address the integration challenges that migration flows pose to policy makers, civil society and industrial partners in Europe. The main features of the proposed research training programme can be described as follows: (1) provide high quality research training on integration policies and processes in the European Union and neighbouring countries. It aims to enhance the quality of the existing knowledge of scholars, policy makers, practitioners, economic actors and civil society dealing with integration. (2) contribute to the creation of an international inter-sectoral and multidisciplinary critical mass on the politics of integration and more specifically on cultural and identity management, citizenship and political participation, labour and social integration and urban integration, residential patterns and mobility. (3) enrich the political and social debate through a transnational multidisciplinary analysis on the causes and conditions leading to migrant integration and economic, social and territorial cohesion. The network aims to bring together key actors with proven experience and knowledge of integration policies and processes from academic, enterprise, civil society and public backgrounds. (4) provide EU policy makers and practitioners with qualitative and quantitative scientific tools to inform their decision making and implementation processes on the four indicated integration policy areas. The proposed programme aims to contribute to the EU’s integration agenda on the basis of the coherent approach to integration pursued at EU level and fostered by the European Commission.

Abstract
Migratory movements and the presence of immigrants in our societies are at the centre of political and media attention in Europe. In a context in which xenophobic parties have alarmingly increased their support base and where rumors and false or biased news are skewing the public debate on migration, it is particularly urgent and important that civil society, institutions and the media have substantiated and verifiable information. Promoting and disseminating scientific knowledge on migratory phenomena is one of the main purposes of the Tenerife Immigration Observatory
