Migration and Integration

In partnership with the Centre national d’études spatiales (CNES) and with the support of the Agence française de développement (AFD), the French Institute for Demographic Studies (INED) and the French Museum of Natural History (MNHN) are organizing an international conference on the links between human mobility, climate and environmental changes. The aim is to capture the complexity and multiplicity of interactions between migration and environment as brought to light by recent or ongoing research, taking explicit account of inequalities in the populations under study.

Demography is a discipline which is somehow fixed in a Procrustean bed: At many universities, it is subsumed into other academic subjects (such as sociology, economics, geography), thus often exposed to risks of budget cuts and staff shortages; while on the other side, the often small group of demographers in a department is stretched to cover a broad range of population developments. How can demography as an “interdiscipline” be better promoted? Should we put stronger emphasis on building our own corpus of population theory, as suggested by leading researchers? [...]

Deutsche Version English Version   Population Europe has developed four lesson plans for teachers to help educate their students about demography. The teaching material has been tested with various school classes to make sure that the materials were easy to understand and interesting for both students and teachers without the need for extensive preparation.

Migration is a reality in today’s European Union (EU). Approximately 20 million non-EU nationals reside in the EU, making up 4% of its total population, and further flows of migration will be a feature of the 21st century. It is therefore imperative that effective policies for the integration of third-country nationals are developed in the EU. In order to better understand how the EU institutions can work with Member States and other actors to respond to the challenges of integration, it is necessary to have a clearer understanding of the public opinion on the issue.

Migration flows are profoundly changing the composition of classrooms. Results from the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) reveal that in 2015, almost one in four 15-year-old students in OECD countries reported that they were either foreign-born or had at least one foreign-born parent. Between 2003 and 2015, the share of students who had either migrated or who had a parent who had migrated across international borders grew by six percentage points, on average across OECD countries.

Foreign workers are usually found on either the bottom or top end of the Swiss labour market, while Swiss natives hold the intermediate level positions. At the same time, the distribution of the foreign work force seems to be influenced by the origin of the workers. By means of the 1980 Census and the 2010-2011 Structural Survey, Elena Vidal-Coso and Enrique Ortega-Rivera compare the career-related disadvantages of Italian and Spanish immigrants between 1976 and 1980, and 2006 and 2011.
