Abstract

Das Buch bietet eine theoretische und praktische Einführung in einen besonderen Teil der Sozialen und der pädagogischen Arbeit mit Geflüchteten. Es werden unterschiedliche Konzeptionen, Formate und Praxen der Erstorientierung thematisiert. Ausgehend von den Ergebnissen des wissenschaftlich begleiteten Erstorientierungsprojekts HO:PE des Flüchtlingszentrums Hamburg werden Best-Practice-Ansätze für die sozialraumorientierte Soziale Arbeit und die Bildungsarbeit vorgestellt, die bei der zielorientierten und systematischen Erstorientierung Geflüchteter helfen. Die Bandbreite an Vorgehensweisen aus der Praxis deckt ein Kursangebot für Geflüchtete ebenso ab wie andere Formate, z.B. Informationsvorträge oder Fortbildungen für ehrenamtlich Engagierte. Die Leserinnen und Leser erhalten darüber hinaus theoretisch fundiertes Hintergrundwissen zu Erstorientierung und Empowerment von Geflüchteten sowie zu didaktischen und methodischen Grundlagen für die Bildungsarbeit. Ein besonderes Augenmerk wird zudem auf das Empowermentpotenzial der Erstorientierung, auf die Sozialraumaktivierung und die sozialraum- orientierte Soziale Arbeit im Rahmen von Erstorientierung gerichtet.; The book offers a theoretical and practical introduction to a particular part of the social and educational work with refugees. Different concepts, formats, and practices of first orientation are discussed. Based on the results of the scientifically accompanied initial orientation project HO:PE of the Refugee Centre Hamburg, best-practice approaches for social-space-oriented social work and educational work will be presented that help police with their goal-oriented and systematic initial orientation. The range of practical procedures covers a course offer for refugees as well as other formats, e.g. information lectures or training courses for volunteers. In addition, the readers receive theoretically sound background knowledge on the initial orientation and empowerment of refugees as well as on didactic and methodological basics for educational work. Special attention is also paid to the empowerment potential of initial orientation, to social space activation, and social space-oriented social work within the framework of initial orientation.

Abstract

"The Truth about the Desert explores the living conditions under which Tuareg refugees from northern Mali rebuild their lives in the Nigerien diaspora and how these conditions affect their self-understandings and cultural practices, established status hierarchies, and religious identity formation. The book counterbalances an earlier scholarly preoccupation with Tuareg nobility by zoning in on two inferior social status groups, the Bellah-Iklan and free-born vassals, which have been neglected in conventional accounts of Tuareg society. By offering a multi-layered analysis of social status and identity formation in the diaspora, it pleads for a more dynamic understanding of Tuareg socio-political hierarchies. Analyzing in detail how both status groups rely on moralizing labels and racial stereotyping to reformulate their own social and ethnic identity, the study highlights refugees’ aspirations and capacities to remake their imaginary and material worlds in the face of adverse and often deeply humiliating living conditions. The book provides vital insights for refugee studies and for scholarly debates on ethnicity, social identity formation, and memory politics. Souleymane Diallo earned his PhD in socio-cultural anthropology from the University of Cologne. His research interests include forceful migrations and memory politics; Islam, spiritual authority, and power in the Sahara; and the theory and practice of anthropological filmmaking."

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

This book offers another frame through which to view the event of the outrigger landing of 43 West Papuans in Australia in 2006. West Papuans have crossed boundaries to seek asylum since 1962, usually eastward into Papua New Guinea (PNG), and occasionally southward to Australia. Between 1984–86, around 11,000 people crossed into PNG seeking asylum. After the Government of PNG acceded to the United Nations Convention and Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees, West Papuans were relocated from informal camps on the international border to a single inland location called East Awin. This volume provides an ethnography of that settlement based on the author’s fieldwork carried out in 1998–99.

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

Greg Burgess’s important new study explores the short life of the High Commission for Refugees (Jewish and Other) Coming from Germany, from its creation by the League of Nations in October 1933 to the resignation of High Commissioner, James G. McDonald, in December 1935. The book relates the history of the first stage of refugees from Germany through the prism of McDonald and the High Commission. It analyses the factors that shaped the Commission’s formation, the undertakings the Commission embarked upon and its eventual failure owing to external complications. The League of Nations and the Refugees from Nazi Germany argues that, in spite of the Commission’s failure, the refugees from Nazi Germany and the High Commission’s work mark a turn in conceptions of international humanitarian responsibilities when a state defies standards of proper behaviour towards its citizens.

Abstract

This volume of essays represents the first systematic attempt to explore the use of the past in the making of citizenship and immigration policy in Australia and New Zealand. Focussing on immigration and citizenship policy in Australia and New Zealand, the contributions to this volume explore how history and memory are implicated in policy making and political debate, and what processes of remembering and forgetting are utilised by political leaders when formulating and defending policy decisions. They remind us that a nuanced understanding of the past is fundamental to managing the politics and practicalities of immigration and citizenship in the early 21st century.

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.
