Europa/ Geographies of Asylum in Europe and the Role of European Localities till sidans topp

Editors Birgit Glorius, Jeroen Doomernik

This open access book describes how the numerous arrivals of asylum seekers since 2015 shaped reception and integration processes in Europe. It addresses the structuration of asylum and reception systems, and spaces and places of reception on European, national, regional and local level. It also analyses perceptions and discourses on asylum and refugees, their evolvement and the consequences for policy development. Furthermore, it examines practices and policy developments in the field of refugee reception and integration. The volume shows and explains a variety of refugee reception and integration strategies and practices as specific outcome of multilevel governance processes in Europe. By addressing and contextualizing those multiple experiences of asylum seeker reception, the book is a valuable contribution to the literature on migration and integration, societal development and political culture in Europe.

USA/ Abused, blamed, and refused: Protection denied to women and children trafficked till sidans topp

The current U.S. administration asserts that its border policies are designed to protect women and children from traffickers. However, its actions tell a very different story. Over the course of the last two years, the administration has failed to protect trafficking victims, as reflected in a dramatic increase in denials of visas for them, resulting from a new and highly restrictive interpretation of requirements under the Trafficking Victims Protection Act. A review of all published appeals of applications for visas for victims of trafficking since 2017 shows that the administration's decision-making has been particularly dismissive of claims by women and children who have been trafficked over the southwestern border, and has effectively blamed them for their own victimization. Recently implemented policies also scare survivors from coming forward to report abuse and even push them into the hands of traffickers.

In 2000, Congress passed the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA), which created T visas for victims of severe labor or sex trafficking. Beyond proving that they have been forcibly transported for commercial sex or involuntary servitude, T visa applicants also must comply with reasonable requests to assist law enforcement in investigating and prosecuting their traffickers. In addition, they must prove they are physically present in the United States on account of trafficking, and that they would face "extreme hardship involving unusual and severe harm" if removed from the United States. T visas allow victims of trafficking who are in the United States without authorization to legalize their status and petition for the legal entry of certain family members. They also provide access to work permits and federally funded health and other benefits. Congress capped the number of T visas at 5,000 per year, but never more than one-third of that total have been provided in any given year.

Afrika/ IOM Trends Analysis: Most Horn of Africa migrants move within region till sidans topp

Nearly 400,000 migrant movements were recorded in Djibouti, Ethiopia and Somalia during the first six months of 2018 - an average of 2,000 or more individuals per day.

It is an active migration zone, characterized by what is considered "mixed" migration - or the movement of different population groups for a variety of reasons.

A slim majority (51%) of these individuals are moving from, but also within, the Horn of Africa, followed by about 36 per cent whose movements are towards the Gulf Cooperation Council countries on the eastern route - through Djibouti, Somaliland and Puntland.

Smaller movements are being tracked along the Southern Route (to South Africa) and the Northern Route (to Egypt and Israel), about 8 and 5 per cent, respectively.

IOM also recorded over 50,000 arrivals in Yemen during the first half of 2018, which is consistent with the 90,000-100,000 rates of arrivals from Africa annually to Yemen during recent years.

These are a few of the findings detailed in a new report, entitled A Region on the Move, that provides mid-year trend analyses of the main events and key population mobility patterns across the East and Horn of Africa (EHoA) region. The report provides evidence-based insights into major displacement crises and migration trends observed during the first six months of 2018.

Among the major highlights:

+ Some 970,000 Ethiopians were forced to flee their homes between April and June (2018) following inter-communal conflict in the areas between the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region (SNNPR) and the Oromia Region;

+ Somalia continues to be affected by protracted and new displacements, with an estimated 2.6 million internally displaced persons as of May 2018;
