Abstract

Wie können irreguläre Migranten und Migrantinnen ihre Interessen vertreten, obgleich ihre Einreise und ihr Aufenthalt als unerwünscht gelten? Die Studie zeichnet die Spuren von Protest, Organisierung und Lobbying in der EU nach. Dabei wird der Blick an die Grenzen Europas wie auch auf das lobbypolitische Zentrum Brüssel gelenkt. Die Studie zeigt auf, inwiefern sich auf europäischer Ebene überraschende und unkonventionelle Ansatzpunkte ergeben - nicht zuletzt durch geschlechterpolitische Allianzen und eigensinnige Praxen der Migrierenden. Das Buch trägt zur sozialwissenschaftlichen Diskussion um "schwache Interessen" und zum gesellschaftlichen Diskurs um "illegale" Migration bei.

Abstract

Das Terrain des europäischen Migrationsrechts ist von Kämpfen um Hegemonie geprägt. Den damit einhergehenden Prozessen des Re-Borderings - die Schaffung eines Bereichs unbeschränkter innerer Mobilität, die zugleich an massive Außengrenzen gekoppelt ist - widmet Sonja Buckel zwei Fallstudien. Sie zeigen, dass in diesen Auseinandersetzungen wesentliche Elemente eines europäischen Staatsprojekts verhandelt werden. Während die erste Fallstudie die Herausbildung transnationaler sozialer Rechte untersucht, fokussiert die zweite die juridischen Kämpfe um die südliche europäische Seegrenze und um die Aufrechterhaltung einer imperialen Lebensweise.

Abstract

Although there has been a wide range of political responses to migration in Europe, scholarly analyses have shown that state and humanitarian responses have regardless done little to foster the integration of mobile people into host societies, resulting instead in a politics of exclusion. Resistance to such policies has taken the form of independent camps and solidary spaces. Although most analyses of informal camps agree on their emancipatory potential, the same studies have revealed that these realities can also reproduce existing relations of power. Are solidary spaces conducive to participatory politics? If so, how do activists and migrants construct their own identities in the struggle, and how do they translate them into practice? What power dynamics are re-inscribed in their action? My research will attempt to answer these questions through a case study of Ventimiglia, a town at the Franco-Italian border, and the waves of solidarity activism that have taken place there from 2015 to the present. We extend our heartfelt thanks to the Vahabzadeh Foundation for financially supporting the publication of best works by young researchers of the Graduate Institute, giving a priority to those who have been awarded academic prizes for their master’s dissertations.

Abstract

The displaced are often rendered silent and invisible as they journey in search of refuge. Drawing on historical and contemporary examples from Turkey, the Ottoman Empire, Iraq, Syria, UK, Germany, France, the Balkan Peninsula, US, Canada, Australia, and Kenya, the contributions to this volume draw attention to refugees, asylum seekers, exiles, and forced migrants as individual subjects with memories, hopes, needs, rights, and a prospective place in collective memory. The book's wide-ranging theoretical, literary, artistic, and autobiographical contributions appeal to scholarly and lay readers who share concerns about the fate of the displaced in relation to the emplaced in this age of mass mobility.

Focussing European borders: The book provides insight into a variety of changes in the nature of borders in Europe and its neighborhood from various disciplinary perspectives. Special attention is paid to the history and contemporary dynamics at Polish and German borders. Of particular interest are the creation of Euroregions, mutual perceptions of Poles and Germans at the border, EU Regional Policy, media debates on the extension of the Schengen area. Analysis of cross-border mobility between Abkhazia and Georgia or the impact of Israel's 'Security Fence' to Palestine on society complement the focus on Europe with a wider view.

Abstract

While dealing with the challenge of fleeing from war and poverty, the German civilian society has reinvented itself. Between 2015 and 2016 approximately 15,000 projects were established and creative answers to the manifold challenges of immigration were found. They provide an alternative to panic reactions that consider controls and deterrence to be the only means of how to deal with refugees. This volume describes 90 exemplary projects. They show how much power to master social problems can be found in today's civilian society – and how much potential for a new kind of interacting not only with immigrants but also within the society itself.

Abstract

The Darfur crisis has left behind a profound legacy of displacement, with some 300,000 refugees camped on the Chadian side of the border and about 2 million displaced internally within Darfur. Despite a reduction in armed hostilities and violent casualties since 2006, as well as a peace agreement signed at Doha in 2011, limited signs of voluntary repatriation are visible from eastern Chad; where refugees are seemingly willing, but not ready, to return. Further to the Doha peace settlement, th...

Abstract

The years 1989/1990 saw the fall of the Iron Curtain. Following forty years of significant restrictions, legal and non-bureaucratic travel from East-Central and Eastern European countries was once again possible and travelling and returning to those countries became just as easy. Immediately following the end of the East-West conflict, people from East-Central and Eastern European countries took advantage of their new freedom of travel. Many sought to emigrate to Western countries. However, when faced with such immigration, the euphoria which met the end of the political divisions in the West evaporated quickly. Several polls and surveys, projections and prognoses served to unsettle people more than the reality of immigration. This gave rise to a sometimes blind and specious – yet nevertheless politically effective – fear of a new mass migration of peoples. Now, more than ten years after the fall of the Iron Curtain, the actual scale and development of the East-West migration in Europe be clearly evaluated. This book attempts to do just that, including a comprehensive overview and eleven country-specific chapters. Each chapter includes a historical review, an account of the most important changes since 1989/1990 and a forecast of future migration developments.
