Focusing on the dynamics of irregular immigration in Southern EU Member States, this book analyses how the phenomenon is managed at national and local levels in different legal and political systems. In doing so, it answers vital policy questions regarding the continued existence of irregular migration, pathways to legality, and relations between unauthorized migrants and receiving societies. The author argues that while the economic crisis and migrant flows coming from the South and East of the Mediterranean Sea have called this regime into question, it is the needs of labour markets in Southern Europe and compliance with European Union rules that has had a more dominant effect. The particular manner in which labour markets, political actors, social institutions, and migrants’ networks intersect are shown to be distinctive features of the migration regime in this region. Describing bordering and debordering practices, from the island of Lampedusa to local communities in distant regions, this book brings fresh insights to urgent areas of debate within the field. It analyses why many irregular immigrants are socially accepted, such as women who perform domestic and care activities, whereas others are rejected and marginalized, as is often the case for asylum seekers, despite having permission to reside. Drawing together twenty years of research and addressing the current crisis, it will appeal to policy-makers, students and scholars of migration.

Die transatlantische Zusammenarbeit diente einst dem Wiederaufbau und der Demokratisierung Europas. Heute spielt sie eine Schlüsselrolle bei der Bewältigung gemeinsamer globaler Herausforderungen. Angesichts der demographischen Entwicklungen und der Migrationsströme, denen sich die europäischen und nordamerikanischen Gesellschaften gegenübersehen, sind die Migrations- und Integrationspolitiken entscheidend für ihre wirtschaftlichen, sozialen and demokratischen Perspektiven im 21. Jahrhundert. Gerade Europa braucht neue Konzepte für Zuwanderung und Integration, um im weltweiten Wettbewerb um Talente bestehen zu können. Das Buch dokumentiert innovative Lösungsansätze, die eine "Transatlantic Task Force on Immigration and Integration" erarbeitet hat. Die Taskforce wurde von der Bertelsmann Stiftung und dem amerikanischen Migration Policy Institute zusammengebracht, um neue strategische Impulse für die Zukunftsfragen von Zuwanderung und gesellschaftlichem Zusammenhalt zu entwickeln.

Merkel und die Flüchtlingspolitik: Report aus dem Innern der Macht

Ein dramatisches Kapitel jüngster deutscher Geschichte – und ein Insider-Report aus dem Innern der Macht. Die Grenzöffnung für Flüchtlinge im Herbst 2015 hat das Land gespalten – die einen preisen Angela Merkels moralische Haltung, die andern geißeln die Preisgabe von Souveränität. Doch was als planvolles Handeln erscheint, ist in Wahrheit eine Politik des Durchwurstelns, des Taktierens und Lavierens, befeuert von hehren Idealen und Opportunismus. Robin Alexander zeigt, dass die politischen Akteure Getriebene sind, zerrieben zwischen selbst auferlegten Zwängen und den sich überschlagenden Ereignissen. Robin Alexander blickt als Korrespondent der »Welt am Sonntag« seit Jahren hinter die Kulissen des Kanzleramtes - in seinem Buch, das auf Recherchen in Berlin, Brüssel, Wien, Budapest und der Türkei basiert, rekonstruiert er minutiös die Schlüsselentscheidungen von sechs Schicksalsmonaten - und erzählt am Beispiel des wohl dramatischsten Kapitels der jüngeren deutschen Geschichte davon, wie heute Politik gemacht wird.

Based on the discussions and findings of a Council of Europe expert seminar meeting, held in Strasbourg in November 2002, as well as a literature review, this publication considers the complex and interrelated issues involved in irregular migration flows in Europe, including illegal migration, applications for and refusal of asylum, and traffic in human beings. It also considers possible options for improving reception and migration policy management in Europe. Conclusions drawn include that closing external borders or implementing strict migration policies in countries of transit or arrival are often ineffective, benefiting criminal networks whilst contributing to rising fears in host countries.

With specific attention to irregular migrant workers - that is to say, those without legal permits to stay in the countries in which they work - this volume focuses on domestic work, presenting studies from ten European countries, including Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, and Spain. Offering a comparative analysis of irregular migrants engaged in all kinds of domestic work, the authors explore questions relating to employment conditions, health issues and the family lives of migrants. The book examines the living and working conditions of irregular migrant domestic workers, their relations with employers, their access to basic rights such as sick leave, sick pay, and holiday pay, as well as access to health services. Close consideration is also given to the challenges for family life presented by workers' status as irregular migrants, with regard to their lives both in their countries of origin and with their employers. Through analyses of the often blurred distinction between legality and illegality, the notion of a ’career’ in domestic work and the policy responses of European nations to the growth of irregular migrant domestic work, this volume offers various conceptual developments in the study of migration and domestic work. As such, it will appeal to sociologists, political scientists, geographers and anthropologists with interests in migration, gender, the family and domestic work.

This book examines the issue of irregular transit migration to the EU by presenting the case of the Afghans. Focusing on the Afghans that arrive in and seek to move through Greece, it highlights the unique problems facing this distinctive migratory movement. Recognising that the migratory journey is a continuous interplay of policies and individuals, how each responds and adapts, the book itself moves between countries, policies, stories of migrants and the author’s own experiences in the field. Drawing on extensive empirical research conducted in both Greece and Turkey, it explores why such transits occur and the decision-making process of the migrants in transit. Through the example of Afghan migration this book contributes to broader debates concerning transit migration, hospitality and asylum (how it is perceived, access to it). This book presents a timely study of the rise of ‘fortress Europe’ and the current discourse around refugees and migrants, amidst the largest refugee flow since WWII in Europe. This book’s interdisciplinary approach will make it a valuable resource for policy makers as well as Sociology and Politics scholars.

An Economic Analysis of Policies in the EU

Irregular immigration is at the forefront of the political and public debate in the European Union. Images of desperate people arriving at the southern shores of the EU regularly dominate the media coverage. In this book, Steffen Minter focuses on the coordination problems between EU Member States in dealing with immigrants and refugees entering the EU. The author demonstrates that the enforcement of the external EU border constitutes a public good as long as irregular immigrants have the possibility to move on between member states once they have entered EU territory. In this scenario he analyzes the interaction between border enforcement and immigration amnesties from an economic point of view. Furthermore, he introduces a mechanism to implement financial burden sharing between Member States, so that an efficient level of border enforcement can be achieved.

In 'Irregular Migrants in Belgium and the Netherlands', Masja van Meeteren studies the different ways in which irregular migrants live in Belgium and the Netherlands. The book offers an empirically grounded theoretical critique of the dominant research practice that focuses on 'survival strategies', relies on comparisons of migrant communities and overemphasizes structural explanations. Instead, Irregular Migrants takes irregular migrants ́ aspirations as a starting point of analysis. Based on this innovative research approach, key questions are answered regarding the lives of irregular migrants. How can we understand their patterns of economic and social incorporation, the transnational activities they engage in, and the significance of different forms of capital? Drawing on intensive participant observation, as well as more than two hundred in-depth interviews with irregular migrants and representatives of organizations that are involved with them, Irregular Migrants develops much-needed contextualized insights. As such, it sheds new light on previous research findings and various deadlocked scholarly debates on irregular migrants in Western societies. -Masja van Meeteren works as an Assistant Professor in the department of Criminology at Leiden University.

Security, Insecurity and Migration in Europe

Publisher: Ashgate Publishing, Ltd.

ISBN: 1409492923

Category: Social Science

Page: 328

View: 443

Having often been framed in terms of security concerns, migration issues have simultaneously given rise to issues of insecurity: on the one hand, security of borders, political, societal and economic security/insecurity in the host country; on the other, social, legal and economic concerns about human security, with regard to both EU citizens and migrants entering Europe. In terms of state security, migration is a core target of increasingly globally networked surveillance capabilities, whilst with respect to human security, it exposes the gap between the protections that migrants formally enjoy under international law and the realities they experience as they travel and work across different countries. Drawing on the latest research from across the EU, Security, Insecurity and Migration explores the concerns of states with regard to migration and the need to protect the fundamental rights of migrants. An interdisciplinary examination of the issues of security and insecurity raised by migration for states, their citizens and migrants themselves, this book will be of interest to scholars of politics, sociology and geography researching migration, race and ethnicity, human and state security and EU politics and policy.
