Immigrants and IDPs in Europe – what kind of Europe do they reveal?


Location: Poznań, Poland
Date: 30 Aug 11:00 - 15:30


Room 2.19

Immigrants and IDPs presence in Europe since 20th century has caused various reactions in countries which take them in. The Old Continent has become a dynamic laboratory for various scenarios of collective behaviours uncovering dominant axiologies, normative systems and politics – from openness to ostracism aimed at the incomers, from the fiasco of “integration programmes” to extreme racist attitudes. In this context, we welcome you to participate in a discussion on “what kind of Europe do immigrations reveal”? Important themes: - who are immigrants and IDPs in Europe today? - how we should explore immigration (micro, makro, institutional level) in Europe? - how immigration (and IDPs) is defined by family-decisions, market and welfare state regimes, especially as for mobility from former communist states in Central and Eastern Europe to global North? - how gender order is negotiated through lenses of neoliberal economies and new national movements? - what axiological and normative ( also law and order) systems make up Europe and what do they depend on in the context of immigration and IDPs ? - what divisions in Europe have been made visible by the immigration / immigration crisis and what do they result from? - what will come after the immigration crisis?

It also targeted mechanisms of identity-making and social distancing, which can/so ... More

The author focuses his attention on the influence of formal and legal conditions of the operation of the total institution on interpersonal relations. These conditions result in certain features of the total institution, such as minimizing physical intimacy, power omnipotence, hierarchy of power, isolation from the outside, etc. The reference point for the deliberations are detention centers for f ...

The presentation draws upon a theoretical framework and initial research conclusions elaborated within the research project Spaces of detention, which was focused on the spatial aspects of foreigners detention centres in Poland. Approaching the topic with methods of sociology of law and legal anthropology, I would like to propose a more general understanding of the role that law plays in total ins ... More

Poland remains the main EU country in which Ukrainians work, because of several competitive advantages: extensive migration networks, a liberal procedure for legalising residence and work (for short periods). In 2013-2017, only 92 Ukrainian citizens were granted refugee status in the Republic of Poland, and 313 decisions on granting subsidiary protection. People applying for international protecti ...

In recent years, intra-EU mobility patterns of asylum seekers played a critical role in the European crisis. While the Dublin Convention has been working as a form of “internal externalization” at the intra-EU level, several EU member states reintroduced border controls as a response to the general perception of “crisis” related to the management of migratory flows. As a consequence, intra ... More

Ukrainian citizens belong to one of the largest groups of all third-country nationals living and working in the European Union (EU) (Fedyuk, Kindler 2016). Resulting from the political, military and economic crisis in Ukraine, initiated by Euromaidan in Kiev (2013/2014), the number of people leaving this country has increased. Poland is one of the main migratory goals for Ukrainian citizens leavin ... More

Detention represents a fascinating but still understudied aspect of migration governance. It is a security technology used in relation to migrants that are believed to “endanger citizens because of their unclassificability” and/or undesirability (Mountz 2015). In this sense, it is an extreme strategy of control of migrants equipped with technologies and practices of containment and exclusion ( ... More
