What do integration tests for migrants aim to achieve, and how useful have they proven to be?

спрашивает
Olga Zeveleva
migration studies enthusiast  · 30 апреля 2017
Integration tests for migrants initially started as language tests. Many countries across the world that have a large migrant intake (mostly "Western" countries) introduced these in 2004-2005. According to the Migrant Integration Policy Index (MIPEX), by 2006, 11 out of 26 EU states had... Читать далее

Which countries have had the most successful migration policies and why?

It’s remarkable how little research is available comparing the success of different countries’ immigration policies. This is partly because it is such a delicate topic, and partly because there are so many different criteria to judge what makes a successful policy. If the criterion is... Читать далее

Do anti-immigration attitudes correlate with knowledge of or exposure to certain "facts" about immigration, or do they stem from a set value system people hold?

То ли метафизически свободная сущность, то ли максимизатор полезности.  · 10 июля 2017
The offered options are neither mutually exclusive, nor collectively exhaustive. Even more importantly, there is no reason whatsoever that attitudes would spring from a single source, and they don't. Someone had a relative robbed by an immigrant, someone else is a member of a right-wing... Читать далее

A group of foreigners live together in a closely bounded area, often seeing each other for dinner or for children’s sporting events. The mothers usually see each other as they drop their children off at their mother-tongue school, sometimes meeting for coffee afterwards if they don’t... Читать далее

Is it possible to talk about emancipation of women in Western societies if women still take care of household & children, but they are hired migrants?

First of all, it depends on what you mean by emancipation. There are two possible measures of emancipation, neither of which in my opinion is particularly good. One of them is achieved through political rights, and the other through wage earning. Women did not gain access to suffrage in... Читать далее

Will deportations under Trump create jobs for American workers?

спрашивает
Alice Beardmore-Gray
University of Toronto Professor of History, and author of fifteen books on...  · 17 февраля 2017
Mass deportations would likely have a significant and negative, effect on the US economy because these migrants are working in a very wide range of jobs, and many of them jobs that Americans seem reluctant to do. I could talk for hours about why American workers don’t take these jobs... Читать далее

Does the US accept relatively more or fewer refugees than other Western countries? My answer looks at the number of refugees accepted by the US in relation to all other countries, not only those in the West. The latest UN figures (January 2015) show that the US had a refugee population... Читать далее

How does the feminisation of migration affect the role of women in both developed and developing societies?

спрашивает
Anastasia Krasnoperova
University of Toronto Professor of History, and author of fifteen books on...  · 5 февраля 2017
The big answer is perhaps “not as much as people think.” Women have always migrated, and migrated over long distances, they’ve never been sedentary. So many of our assumptions about contemporary female migration leading to astonishing or threatening change is based on the false... Читать далее

How is Trump's approach to refugees connected to the policies of the Obama administration?

спрашивает
Laura Overmeyer
University of Toronto Professor of History, and author of fifteen books on...  · 17 февраля 2017
I’d begin answering this question with a very broad statement. Obama came into office in 2008 as a person promising to work in a bipartisan fashion, with both Democrats and Republicans. And in his first administration he certainly offered some policies which he thought would create... Читать далее
