Une invitation à découvrir les recherches menées en France et en Allemagne sur la thématique du consommateur immigré. Cet ouvrage vise à documenter une série d’échanges scientifiques franco‑allemands qui se sont déroulés entre 2015 et 2017 sur la figure du consommateur immigré. À travers cinq rencontres, l’ambition était de faire émerger un nouveau champs de recherche, croisant deux thématiques traditionnellement abordées séparément - celle des migrations d’une part, et celle de la consommation d’autre part - et de faire dialoguer des historiographies qui se connaissent peu ou pas du tout du...

To mark International Women’s Day on March 8th, two CEPS researchers, Mikkel Barslund and Nadzeya Laurentsyeva, tackled in an article the challenge facing policy-makers of how best to integrate women migrants into the labour market. As they noticed that the difference in employment rates between native- and non-EU born women is higher than the one of their male counterparts, they investigated the causes of such a gap. They found that in addition to a difference in age and education composition, it can be explained by the role of persistent culture but also by structural constraints on female...

The Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants (PICUM) published a new report entitled “Cities of Rights: Ensuring Health Care for Undocumented Migrants”, which reveals how cities in Europe are providing access to health care to those who are not eligible to benefit from public health systems. Many cities in Europe are filling this gap because they realise the importance of good health for social cohesion and public health in general. As stated by the PICUM Director, Michele LeVoy, “In a political climate that increasingly looks for ways to shut migrants out, cities have...

This report by the McKinsey Global Institute entitled "Europe's New Refugees: A Road Map for Better Integration Outcomes" argues that Europe should ensure that refugees are integrated into the labour market, as well as society, so that the potential and benefits of migration are maximised. To arrive to this arguement, the report explains the factors that shaped individual journeys of this new group of refugees, and then outlines the important role of the EU in harmonising their response to this population of people. Finally, promising strategies being implemented in Europe to help integrate...

Dar es Salaam is one of the fastest growing cities in sub-Sahara Africa and might become a “mega-city” of over 10 millions residents by 2025. Part of this growth is due to important migratory flux, coming in particular from the DRC and Burundi, two countries facing some severe political crisis. Theses conflicts force many people to flee their homes and leave their origin territory for neighboring countries, as Tanzania. Most of them will settle at the borders of Dar es Salaam, making the city bigger and larger. This unplanned and informal growth of the city exacerbates many of the current...
