Migrants, conditionality and welfare in the UK

Description

Peter Dwyer, University of York, gives a talk for the COMPAS seminar series. Conditionality matters for migrants. First, in a broad sense i.e. the ways in which UK immigration and welfare policies intersect to establish and structure the diverse rights and responsibilities of different migrant groups living in the UK. Second, in respect of more focused understandings of welfare conditionality and the linking of an individual?s rights to social welfare benefits and services to specified behavioural requirements. This seminar explores how these two aspects of conditionality play out in migrants? interactions with welfare agencies. Discussions will draw on early analysis of new qualitative data generated in first wave interviews with 54 migrants who are one cohort within a larger, repeat Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Migration and the health trajectories of immigrants and host country nationals

Description

Osea Giuntella, Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford, gives a talk for the COMPAS seminar series. Despite a lower average socioeconomic status, recent immigrants in many advanced economies have better health outcomes than the incumbent residents in the hosting countries. Paradoxically, this initial health advantage erodes with time spent in the destination country, despite immigrants? socio-economic assimilation. In the talk I will discuss the role of selection, acculturation, socio-economic and occupational characteristics in explaining immigrants? health trajectories presenting evidence from some of my recent work on migration and health in the US, UK, and Germany. Furthermore, I will examine different mechanisms through which immigration can have effects on the healt Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Asylum Seekers in Immigration Detention: Implications for Social Work

Description

Studies show how immigration detention has a negative impact on the mental health and wellbeing of asylum seekers. One major cause being the inadequate services and support available in detention centres in the UK. Since neither immigration detention nor adult asylum seekers are in the general remit of social workers, the purpose of this paper was to identify the gaps in social work practice in this area. A literature review was conducted to understand how a social work model of intervention can be implemented within immigration detention for asylum seekers.

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/

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.

Between strategic nostalgia and banal nomadism: Arab diaspora watching satellite and digital television across Europe

Description

Myria Georgiou talks about uses of transnational television among Arab speaking populations in Europe to explore questions around citizenship. As migration to the UK has increased in number over the past decade or more, it has become a highly salient, heavily contested political issue as well. Migration as an 'issue' is now a focal point for British public opinion, media coverage, and political debate. This term's seminar examines the relationships among these elements. We will examine how migration is represented in the media, and how media consumption can in turn construct the migrant experience as well. We will examine how various segments of the British public understand migration as a political issue, and how migration may be in turn transforming British politics.
