ÉMIGRÉ - European emigration governance - emigration and diaspora policies and discourses in the post-crisis era

Project funded by the FP-7 Programme of the European Union, Marie Curie Individual Fellowships Grant Agreement no. 624433

The purpose of the project is to analyse the impact of emigration and diaspora policies implemented on national and EU-level on migration strategies of EU nationals. The project looks at the EU member states from the perspective of emigration governance. The main underlying theme of this research is that emigration and immigration are two sides of the same coin and thus European migration governance should be approached from two angles to understand its full dimension. The European Union is in fact still a region of emigration, with a majority of migrants staying within its boundaries, however important numbers leaving EU every year, be it as emigrants or just mobile workers. Based on current global trends emigrants should be perceived as a potential asset. ÉMIGRÉ analyses emigration and diaspora policies of four EU Member as well as EU-level responses to emigration. I would like to know whether policies and actions of the EU countries support EU nationals in their migration or mobility project.

The key objectives are:

  1. To close the knowledge gap on migration from the EU.
  2. To enrich international migration governance studies by providing comparative analysis of actions of EU Member States in regards to emigration management.
  3. To determine the relation between State identity formation/shifts and success of policy learning/policy transfer processes between levels of governance.
  4. To contribute to evidence-based policy making at the EU level

TEMPER - Temporary versus Permanent Migration

Project funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 613468

The overall objective of the TEMPER project consists in providing a comprehensive assessment of the pros and cons of recent initiatives to promote circular migration, as an alternative to more traditional forms of temporary and permanent migration. These initiatives often rely on a poor understanding of the reasons why some migrants spontaneously return an circulate, and others do not. To overcome this lack of understanding, the TEMPER project will pursue three main objectives:

  1. it will identify the main drivers of return and circulation decisions of migrants recently involved in temporary and permanent migration,
  2. it will measure and explain the role that different programs, and immigration policies at large, have played in shaping those individual decisions and,
  3. it will assess the impact that different types of temporary, permanent and circular mobility have for migrant and non-migrant workers, their families and their employers.

The work in TEMPER is focused on a number of countries from four major geographic sending areas, namely: Eastern Europe (Romania, Ukraine), Latin America (Colombia, Argentina), Sub-Saharan Africa (DRC, Ghana, Senegal), North Africa (Morocco). The destination countries under analysis are: France, Italy, Spain and UK.
