Turning the camera around: who watches the watchers?

Rob McNeil discusses how REMINDER’s research into media practices turns the camera upon news reporting on migration in Europe, revealing how and why different narratives and themes about migration have taken hold in different countries, and what led the people creating these stories to operate in such different ways.

Patterns of Migration in the European Union

REMINDER's research team at Maastricht University has produced a wide-ranging, user-friendly summary of available data on migration stocks and flows within the EU. Their work shows that, when it comes to analysing trends in intra-EU migration, the definition of 'migration' that is used plays a large part in determining the results of the research.

Impacts of Return Migration in Poland

As barriers to labour mobility within the EU have been lifted for migrants from Central and Eastern Europe, repeat and circular migration have become more common. However, not much is known about who is involved in this form of mobility. In the case of Poland, a significant number of those who migrated during the post-accession period have since returned, but research on how this migration effects re-integration into the Polish labour market has so far been limited. This paper aims to build a better understanding of this issue, based on census and Labour Force Survey data, and Central Statistical Office estimates.

Evidence of the Determinants of Migration in the EU

Surprisingly little is known about why people migrate within the EU. While existing studies in the area have tended to focus on migration for reasons of employment, there is a growing push to understand the diversity of migrational factors, for example factors relating to family or education. This working paper seeks to build a better understanding of what drives contemporary migration flows, and of the factors shaping the migration decisions of individuals within the EU.

Patterns of Migration in the European Union

This working paper aims to map the patterns and dynamics of migration within the EU of individuals of EU28 origin as well as those from outside the region. The descriptive analysis is based on existing data, largely drawn from Eurostat’s online database on population statistics. This data allows the mapping of intra EU-migration patterns and dynamics during the last four years. As well as analysing EU28-wide stocks and flows, the paper zooms in to explore intra-EU migration for five of the key migration countries within the EU28: Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden, and the UK.
