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.

Immigration and Unemployment Benefits: Evidence from Germany

Despite the growing body of literature on the labour market impacts of immigration, evidence remains mixed and inconclusive, and additional case studies are necessary to clarify when and why impacts are positive or negative for native populations. In this report, the authors explore the impact of immigration on the likelihood of natives claiming unemployment benefits in Germany — the country which is, by some standards, the main migrant receiving country in Europe.

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.
