THEMIS: Changing migration opportunity structures of Roma and their hosting societies: The case of Belgium

Description

Johan Wets presents his paper 'Changing migration opportunity structures of Roma and their hosting societies: the case of Belgium' in Parallel session IV(B) of the conference Examining Migration Dynamics: Networks and Beyond, 24-26 Sept 2013 The overthrowing of the socialist regimes in Eastern Europe lead to different societies, with more freedom on the one hand, but disappearing social safety nets, economic disruption and often booming unemployment, especially amongst ethno-cultural minorities like the Roma. As a result of the accession of Eastern European countries, some communities saw their "migration opportunity structures" change dramatically. This had lead to increasing numbers of Eastern European migrants with a Roma background in other European countries. Roma populations are

Description

Name: Frank Reitoold Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 2 May 1907 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-107-Frank Retoold The Shields Daily News for 2 May 1907 reports: "INDECENT CONDUCT. SIX MONTHS' IMPRISONMENT. At North Shields Police Court today, Frank Reitfold, a fireman, belonging to Antwerp, was charged with behaving in an indecent manner in Christ Church Yard and Preston Road shortly after nine o'clock last night. Evidence was given by two or three ladies who had been insulted by the accused and by Sergt. Charlton who arrested him, on receiving information from two of the ladies. The prisoner, who is a middle-aged man, was severely reprimanded by the chairman (Mr Chas. Foot) for his disgraceful conduct and he was sent to prison for three months with hard labour on each charge." These images are a selection from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 in the collection of Tyne & Wear Archives (TWA ref DX1388/1).

Rough turning the shell body

Description

Rough turning the shell body at the National Projectile Factory, Birtley 14 June 1916 (TWAM ref. 1027/271). These images belong to an album of photographs taken in the National Projectile Factory, Birtley (near Gateshead) during the First World War. The photographs were taken by Sir W.G. Armstrong Whitworth & Co Ltd, who built the factory. The images date from June 1916, shortly after the factory became operational. What makes the factory (and these photographs of it) so special is that all the management and workers there were Belgian. The factory and the nearby village of Elisabethville (built to accommodate them) were like a little corner of Belgium transplanted to the North East of England. More information about the factory and the village of Elisabethville can be found in the blog, which accompanies this set.

Royal marines passing through Ostend, 1915

Description

Postcard of members of the Royal Marine Light Infantry passing through Ostend, Belgium, 1915 (TWAM ref. 5770). Although the postcard describes the troops simply as British Army one of our volunteers has identified the men as belonging to the Royal Marine Light Infantry. The postcard is addressed to Mrs A. Robson, 58 Chester Road, Sunderland and dated 8 July 1915. 'On Active Service' has been written at the top right corner. The message has been transcribed below exactly as written: ?My Darling Wife, I got your nice cheery letter yesterday afternoon. So you see dear it got here quite soon, but really I thought you should have received far more than that, never mind wait till I set about it your ever loving husband Amos xxxxxxx?. This set celebrates the many postcards in our collections. The people, places and events they show can give us an insight into the past, documenting the landscape, the fashions, the way we lived. Some postcards are unused but others tell us something about the people who bought them, through the messages they wrote. They can give us a fascinating glimpse into people?s lives.
