Thailand Migration Report 2014

International migration makes a significant contribution to economic and social development in Thailand but in 2014 many key aspects of migration policy remain unresolved. These include the establishment of a migration management system that ensures that most migrants are in a regular status, the slow preparations for the ASEAN Community, trafficking in persons and smuggling of migrants, and the situation of displaced persons along the Myanmar border.

Hardship, hope and resettlement: refugees from Syria tell their stories

 4 million refugees have fled the ongoing brutal conflict in Syria, which has claimed the lives of over 190,000 people and broken apart homes, families, livelihoods and any sense of a normal life. This briefing highlights the stories of eight families and individuals from Syria who have escaped the conflict. Due to their extreme vulnerability and the harsh living conditions they face, the refugees interviewed here need to be resettled to another safe country outside of the immediate region.

MULHER MIGRANTE: Agente de resistência e transformação

 No contexto das pesquisas sobre migrações internacionais, as análises feitas desde uma perspectiva de gênero – em particular aquelas focadas nas mulheres migrantes – vêm ganhando sistematicamente um maior espaço no debate acadêmico e político. A intensificação da participação das mulheres como primeiras protagonistas dos fluxos migratórios internacionais é algo que chama a atenção quantitativamente, mas, por outro lado, é expressiva a contribuição que traz a análise qualitativa dessa modalidade de migração, uma vez que sugerem implicações sociais das mais diversificadas, devido à centralidade histórica que a figura da mulher detém no núcleo familiar e comunitário.

Left out in the cold: Syrian refugees abandoned by the international community

 The three-year-old conflict in Syria has created one of the worst humanitarian crises in recent history. So far, nearly half of the country’s population has been forced to leave their homes and 3.8 million of those fleeing have become refugees in neighbouring countries. The staggering scale of the refugee crisis has pushed the capacity of the main host countries to the limit. The response of the international community has been wholly inadequate relative to the magnitude of the displacement.

Global Report on Trafficking in Persons 2014

 In 2010, just a few months short of the tenth anniversary of the adoption of the Trafficking in Persons Protocol, Member States renewed their commitment to the fight against trafficking in persons by adopting the United Nations Global Plan of Action to Combat Trafficking in Persons (contained in General Assembly resolution 64/293). In the framework of the Global Plan of Action, the General Assembly mandated UNODC to collect information and publish a Global Report on Trafficking in Persons every two years.

The Global Slavery Index 2014

 This is the second edition of the Global Slavery Index (‘the Index’). The Index estimates the number of people in modern slavery in 167 countries. This year’s Index also includes an analysis of what governments are doing to eradicate modern slavery. In addition to measuring the extent of the problem and the actions taken, the Index increases our understanding of the contextual factors that make people vulnerable to modern slavery. The Index is the flagship report produced by the Walk Free Foundation, a global human rights organisation dedicated to ending modern slavery.

Rescued – what next? Protection seekers stranded in Sicily

As the international press in 2014 focused on the flow of forced migrants reaching Sicily and Lampedusa, far less attention has been paid to what happens to those who end up staying in Sicily. The Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) in Italy, known as Centro Astalli, has offices in Rome, Trento, Vicenza, Palermo and Catania, offering a range of services. JRS teams in Sicily witness first-hand the suffering of refugees and other forced migrants struggling to survive there. This report seeks to give a voice to those who agreed to share their experience in Sicily to highlight the urgent need for changes in Italy's reception system.

"You Don’t Have Rights Here"

 This 37-page report details the US border policies and practices that place migrants at risk of serious harm back home, based on the accounts of people sent back to Honduras, people in detention, and an analysis of deportation data obtained through the Freedom of Information Act. Hondurans who fled extortion and threats from brutal gangs faced fast-track screening procedures in the US that resulted in their deportation without a genuine opportunity to claim asylum.

Fatal Journeys: Tracking Lives Lost during Migration

 In October 2013, 366 migrants died when their boat caught fire and sank off the coast of Lampedusa. Less than a year later, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) reported that 500 migrants were feared dead after their ship was rammed by another boat near Malta. 

Asylum Trends, First Half 2014 – UNHCR

Global Estimates 2014: People displaced by disasters

 IDMC’s latest Global Estimates report shows that 22 million people were displaced in 2013 by disasters brought on by natural hazard events. As in previous years, the worst affected region is Asia, where 19 million people, or 87.1 per cent of the global total, were displaced during the year.

Migrantes en Prisión. La incriminación de migrantes en México, otro destino trágico

 La migración internacional de las personas es un tema de agenda global difícil de entender para las políticas públicas de las naciones afectadas por estos desplazamientos. El a veces insostenible principio de la prioridad nacional (primero los nacionales y después los extranjeros) es con frecuencia influenciado por actores, circunstancias o motivos no necesariamente legítimas. Esta carencia, al final, tiene como resultado la generación de situaciones de vulnerabilidad y de riesgo para la propia integridad de las y los migrantes.

Aproximaciones al Conocimiento Cuantitativo y de Identidades de las Mujeres en la Migración

 Las migraciones femeninas, en todas sus etapas de vida, son parte de un proceso social más amplio que incluye a hombres, jóvenes y adultos, así como niños, de tal manera que, para su conocimiento, es fundamental no perder de vista que se encuentran entrelazadas y que son parte de un fenómeno que contextualiza, pero que no niega, la especificidad de las migraciones de mujeres. 

The City Brand: Champion of Immigrant Integration or Empty Marketing Tool?

 In recent years, cities on both sides of the Atlantic have invested in branding strategies and campaigns to attract tourism, investment, and new residents. This trend is closely tied to the increasing global demand for human capital and changes in travel and technology, which are challenging cities seeking growth to set themselves apart from similar localities in the region and around the world.


E la Bibbia accolse lo straniero


Gianfranco Ravasi: Non è difficile rilevare nella Bibbia, dopo una logica dell’esclusione, una dell’accoglienza, che costituisce l’ambito in cui Dio agisce per portare i figli d’Israele a essergli testimoni tra le genti.
