Migration and Integration

The study of the personal ideal family size of immigrants has a promising and so far underdeveloped potential to disclose the relationship between migration and fertility. Despite its importance, research rarely approached the role of the personal ideal family size for international migrants in the current debate on fertility and migration in the European context. The study of migrants’ ideal family size has the potential to shed light on fertility norms without the interference of economic conditions and migration-related disruptive phenomena. [...]

Migration is of growing concern in the European countries. Each year, around 11 million EU citizens of working age migrate within Europe, in addition to the ones coming from non-European countries. Due to political unrest and conflicts around the globe, refugee migration into Europe has also increased substantially in recent years, bringing the Dublin asylum regulations to a breaking point. Labour migration (both within and from outside Europe) and refugee migration challenge us to reconsider how to organize the welfare state. Are European countries prepared to change social policies?

Massimo Livi Bacci's long and outstanding scientific activity has addressed various aspects of Italian and world population, in terms of current development as well as historical perspectives. His work is characterized by frequent incursions into disciplinary fields different to his central demographic interests, in order to both better understand the issues addressed and, at the same time, offer extensive comparative analysis framed by the long run. Indeed, Massimo Livi Bacci has produced some large and intense "frescoes" on the history of population. [...]

A Buzzword or a Standard for Migration Governance?
Key messages: ‘Vulnerability’ is increasingly becoming a commonly used term within the legal and policy discourse on asylum and migration. It serves as a tool that guides the implementation of legal and policy frameworks in a way that addresses specific needs and prevents the emergence of new ones. ‘Vulnerability’ has the advantage of contextualizing migration policy, since it draws attention to the concrete experiences lived by migrants, refugees and asylum seekers.  [...]
How can we deal with migration to Germany today? What responsibilities should we assign to our state and society regarding migrants not protected under the refugee convention? Chaired by Reinhard Merkel and Julian Nida-Rümelin, we will discuss normative criteria that may guide answers to these questions from a juridical and philosophical perspective. [...]
"Global Crises and Social Policy: Coping with Conflict, Migration and Climate Change" reflects the current struggle in politics and academic scholarship to make sense of a rapidly changing world.
