Abstract

Right to stay in the gastro-kitchen Migration policy regulations and working conditions of refugees with precarious residence permit status Asylum policy is labour market policy. Yet, the demarcation lines in migration policy between "refugees" and "labour migrants" fail to take this fact into account. It is therefore hardly surprising that this connection remains obscure both in the context of migration policy as well as in the research landscape. In contrast, this book focuses on the interactions between migration policy regulations and the working conditions of refugees with precarious residence permit status. For a start, that means opening the analytical view in the field of asylum policy negotiations to the dynamics of everyday struggles for rights and social participation in the case of Swiss gastronomic companies. Jacqueline Kalbermatter examines how social differentiations become apparent in the kitchen and in the labour process, and asks about their specific relation to the residence permit status and geographical origin of the workers. In the end, the conception of gastronomic companies as a place of ongoing negotiation processes of entrepreneurs and workers allows for a new perspective to be adopted. It reveals the entanglements and ambivalences between asylum policy and the regulation of labour force problems, which otherwise remain hidden.

Abstract

Such threats as environmental change, food insecurity, and generalized violence force massive numbers of people to flee states that are unable or unwilling to ensure their basic rights, as do conditions in failed and fragile states that make possible human rights deprivations. Because these reasons do not meet the legal understanding of persecution, the victims of these circumstances are not usually recognized as "refugees," preventing current institutions from ensuring their protection. In this book, Alexander Betts develops the concept of "survival migration" to highlight the crisis in which these people find themselves.

Abstract

Bad News for Refugees analyses the political, economic and environmental contexts of migration and looks specifically at how refugees and asylum seekers have been stigmatised in political rhetoric and in media coverage. Through forensic research it shows how hysterical and inaccurate media accounts act to legitimise political action which can have terrible consequences both on the lives of refugees and also on established migrant communities. Based on new research by the renowned Glasgow Media Group, Bad News for Refugees is essential reading for those concerned with the negative effects of media on public understanding and for the safety of vulnerable groups and communities in our society.

Abstract

"The topic of migration has become particularly contentious in national and international debates. Media have a discernable impact on overall societal attitudes towards this phenomenon. Polls show time and again that immigration is one of the most important issues occupying people’s minds. This book examines the dynamic interplay between media representations of migrants and refugees on the one hand and the governmental and societal (re)actions to these on the other. Largely focusing on Belgium and Sweden, this collection of interdisciplinary research essays attempts to unravel the determinants of people’s preferences regarding migration policy, expectations towards newcomers, and economic, humanitarian and cultural concerns about immigration’s effect on the majority population’s life. Whilst migrants and refugees remain voiceless and highly underrepresented in the legacy media, this volume allows their voices to be heard.

Abstract

After six decades of protracted refugeehood, patterns of social identification are changing among the young people of the fourth refugee generation in the Palestinian refugee camp Burj al-Shamali in Southern Lebanon. Though their identity as Palestinian refugees remains the same compared to older refugee generations, there is an important shift in the young refugees’ relationship towards the homeland, their status as refugees, Islam, the camp society, as well as in their relationship towards ...

Abstract

In der politischen Geschichte der Bundesrepublik Deutschland gilt der Asylkompromiss von 1992/93 als höchst kontroverse Entscheidung, die bis heute, rund 20 Jahre später, Auswirkungen auf die Asylmigration hat. In diesem Band analysieren Wissenschaftler das damalige Flüchtlingsgeschehen, die Interessen der politischen Akteure sowie die Europäisierung der Flüchtlingspolitik. Zeitzeugen aus der Politik und Journalisten diskutieren, inwieweit die angestrebten Ziele erreicht wurden oder ob sich die Kritik an der Entscheidung als gerechtfertigt erwiesen hat. Vertreter von Flüchtlingsorganisationen sowie des Bundesamtes für Migration und Flüchtlinge zeigen Perspektiven des Flüchtlingsschutzes auf.

Abstract

The refugee question occupied centre stage at every political debate in Europe since 2015. Starting from the "long summer of migration", the polarization of opinions and attitudes towards asylum seekers among citizens of the EU has grown increasingly. The divergence between hospitality and hostility has also become evident in political reactions.

Abstract

Throughout the 1930s and early 1940s, before closing its borders to Jewish refugees, the United States granted asylum to approximately 90,000 German Jews fleeing the horrors of the Third Reich. And while most became active participants in American society, they also often constructed their individual and communal lives and identities in relation to their home country. As this groundbreaking study shows, even though many refugees wanted little to do with Germany, the political circumstances of the postwar era meant that engagement of some kind was unavoidable—whether initiated within the community itself, or by political actors and the broader public in West Germany. Author Anne C. Schenderlein gives a fascinating account of these entangled histories on both sides of the Atlantic, and demonstrates the remarkable extent to which German Jewish refugees helped to shape the course of West German democratization.

Abstract

"This volume, edited by Ignazia Bartholini, principal investigator of the PROVIDE - Proximity on Violence: Defence and Equity project (Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme - 2014-2020) funded by the EU, shifted the interpretative focus of its research from gender-based to proximity violence. This theoretical intuition-assertion, fruitful too at empirical level, is informed by a wide-scale reconstruction of the phenomenon of migratory violence and corroborated by the results of the action research carried out by six international teams ˗ Ismu, Oxfam, Telefono Donna, Badia Grande, Aseis Lagarto, SamuSocial International, the University of Jaén and the University of Palermo. Systems of protection, formal and informal good practices, as well as critical issues regarding the reception of migrants, are explored and narrated by the co-authors of the volume thanks to the action research they conducted with the collaboration of a plethora of professionals who narrate and illustrate the topic of proximity violence, providing their own particular frames of reference, views and counterfactual reflections. Furthermore, the discussion of legislation provided offers a cogent crosssection of what has been done to contrast the violence which thousands of asylum seekers and refugees undergo and how much national governments need to do in order to host and recognise victims of proximity violence."
