Migration from North Africa and the Middle East - Skilled Migrants, Development and Globalisation

Publication year: 2015

The countries of the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean (SEM) and those in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) are crucial to the development of the world economy. Highly skilled migration to and from these regions is key to the recent socio-political transformations that have occurred across the world. Despite this, in the states concerned, skilled migration remains an underlying ‘issue of concern’, rather than at the top of political agendas, leading to a spectrum of unclear and uncoordinated legal and policy frameworks. Containing a series of thematic and country-specific overviews, this book highlights the specificity of each region, and identifies and analyses key demographic, economic, legal and political data – allowing for policy prescription. Skilled Migration, the ‘brain drain’, and its impact is an extensively debated phenomenon and this will be an essential companion for social scientists, policy-makers and development scholars.

Is what we hear about migration really true

Is what we hear about migration really true? Questioning eight stereotypes

For decades, the topic of immigration has been polarising European political arenas. The view that immigration can be a positive contribution to Europe has had its defendants and its opponents, and it has often been the matter of harsh debates. In recent years, however, the dispute between the two groups often seems to have largely vanished. If not all politicians share the same principles about migration and migrants, fewer and fewer dare to defend the view that migration is, and will continue to be, needed. They follow the trends of public opinion, in which increasingly large fractions see migrants as competitors in labour markets beset by unemployment, burdens on endangered welfare systems, and a factor of social disruption. This is in large part a result of the current crisis, which has exacerbated economic and social tensions and given rise to the search for scapegoats. If the opinion that migration is a threat rather than an asset prevails, there is a risk that European States will forego the positive benefits of immigration and make decisions that undermine Europe’s recovery from the crisis and, ultimately, its leading position in the world. This booklet re-thinks eight migration stereotypes in the light of research findings established by the Migration Policy Centre. It is based on the detailed volume: “Is what we hear about migration really true? Questioning eight stereotypes.” – Philippe Fargues, Director of the Migration Policy Centre

Vu du Nord, l’islam paraît régner sans partage sur les sociétés du sud de la Méditerranée. Mais l’uniformité apparente remonte-t-elle à la nuit des temps?

L’installation de l’islam dans l’Orient arabe dura neuf siècles. Ce ne fut pas, et de loin, une époque de coercition et de violences constantes. Çà et là, le christianisme et le judaïsme survécurent et, plus d’une fois, prospérèrent. Les accélérations du déclin des chrétientés locales coïncidèrent avec les irruptions de l’Europe chrétienne. Chaque confrontation se prolongea par un regain de fondamentalisme musulman: puritanisme almohade et premières victoires de la Reconquista espagnole, intransigeance mamelouke et Croisades, panislamisme du sultan Abdul-Hamid et humiliations maghrébines et balkaniques de l’Empire ottoman, montée présente d’un néofondamentalisme islamique et création d’Israël. Ces poussées de radicalisation de l’Etat et de la société s’accompagnèrent toutes d’un repli des minorités. Une longue période cependant, les quatre siècles ottomans, vit le rebond succéder au déclin, en Turquie comme dans l’Orient arabe.

L’histoire de cette coexistence confessionnelle offre-t-elle des pistes pour imaginer le futur?
