The core states had relatively homogeneous versions of citizenship, and drew in migrant workers mainly from the Mediterranean region — Spain and North Africa especially in the case of France, Yugoslavia and Turkey in that of Germany. In another incident in April 2009, around 120 people were stranded in the Mediterranean on the Turkish cargo ship the Pinar E, which had retrieved them after the small inflatable boats in which they had been travelling had sunk. The balance between the two and the associated expectations are, of course, central to the content of policy. But this also requires the end of geographical silos. Europe thus faces diverse types of migration, which attests to the fact that 'mixed migration' is the new norm, where migration flows as well as motivations to migrate are diverse and changing in nature.

Migration Research Platform encompasses activities under the Framework Programme on Migration and Mobility. We also show that, despite tendencies to overemphasize the cultural and ideological components of debates about integration, identity and citizenship, it is multiple adjustments in everyday life in relation to education, work, housing and health that play a key role in shaping identities and understandings of the effects of immigration. We see integration as a two-way process involving adaptation by both migrant newcomers and members of the host society. Finally, the expansion included both Scandinavian countries with more homogeneous populations and stronger social citizenship rights Finland, Sweden , and Southern European states with more fragmented welfare systems, and long histories of supplying migrant labour for the more prosperous economies of Northern Europe Spain, Portugal, Greece. At that time, the citizenship law of the Republic of Ireland had a rather unusual provision: it granted the right to citizenship to anyone born on Irish territory, including Northern Ireland.

Migration along south-south — and to a lesser extent south-north — routes is accelerating as a result of conflict, repression, economic disparity, demographic imbalances and climate change. We were particularly sceptical about extrapolating from the outcome of process to ascribe failure without actually looking closely at the nature of the process. On the face of it, the creation. Financial support from the MasterCard Center for Inclusive Growth is gratefully acknowledged. Socio-economic research on migration contributes to the evidence base on which such policies are developed. Although casualties on the battlefield have decreased significantly over time, we have seen a dramatic rise in civilian victims and refugees: more than 50 million people are displaced worldwide.
The current refugee and migration challenge is the largest since the 1940s with unprecedented numbers of asylum seekers arriving at Europe's borders. The idea was to learn from previous experience during the conflicts in the former Yugoslavia 1991—5 , when coordination between states had been haphazard and some countries, particularly Germany, ended up receiving far more refugees than others.
