The injustices of high- versus low-skilled temporary labour migration programs: With evidence from Canada

Description

Among critics of temporary labour migration programs (TLMP), it is common to describe them as exploitative, rights-violating, and unfair. Often, however, these critics fail to distinguish between high- and low-skilled TLMP, the stipulations of which are often quite distinct. Where they do distinguish between them, the common conclusion is that only low-skilled TLMP pose problems of justice which require immediate action. Patti Lenard will examine these assumptions. She argues that both low- and high-skilled TLMP often pose problems of justice, and that while some of these apply only to high- or low-skilled programs, there are others which apply to both. She will illustrate these dilemmas by reference to the Canadian case, where the government has expanded the number of migrants participati Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

What is the evidence about migrant living conditions in the private rented sector and how could they be improved?

Description

Outlining a new report for the Housing and Migration Network UK, 'Migrants and the Private Rented Sector', published in February is the first national report to explore the needs and experience of new migrants who live in the private rented sector. It provides evidence that new migrants are not only more likely to live in private lettings, but also that there is a greater likelihood that they will end up in poor conditions. The report outlines practical solutions that local authorities, housing providers and voluntary and community groups have developed to bring about improvements. This breakfast briefing will discuss the findings and how they are being followed up. Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Citizenship, and the Migrant Metropolis: Life Within and Against the Spaces of the Law

Description

Nicholas de Genoa discusses urbanisation, and how migration is remaking cities, the spatial practice of migrants and their experience and how this can reconceptualise emergent formations of social and political rights. Migration scholars and NGOs have often sought to disassociate popular associations between criminality and immigration: migrants are not criminals, nor are they necessarily more likely to commit crime. But this risks ignoring important relationships between immigration and criminality, both 'immigrant' and 'criminal' for example, are set in opposition to the (good) citizen, both are important administrative categories for states, and comprise groups upon whom the state can exercise significant degrees of coercion. Both are highly racialised. There are also historical co Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Land of Strangers: From a Politics of Social Ties to a Politics of the Commons

Description

Ash Amin discusses his new book, "Land of Strangers: From a Politics of Social Ties to a Politics of the Commons". He states that the impersonality of social relationships in the society of strangers is making majorities increasingly nostalgic for a time of closer personal ties and strong community moorings. Whereas multiculturalism has been steadily 'downgraded' on the policy agenda both in the UK and other parts of Europe during the 2000s, social life at neighbourhood level is increasingly characterised by an everyday negotiation of categorical boundaries such as migration histories, religions, migrant statuses, and socio-economic disparities. This series will focus on emerging empirical research and methodologies that engage with such localised, intercultural processes.

When is an asylum seeker not an asylum seeker? The representation of immigration in the UK press 1996-2005

Description

Paul Baker talks about how asylums seekers and refugees were presented in the national press and the variations in discourses over time and across types of press.
