Migration and Integration

Joint Workshop and Panel Debate with CPC
On 10 May 2016, the Centre for Population Change CPC held two meetings in Westminster/London. Population Europe was a co-organiser of these events. The morning event saw the CPC research teams present their interim findings to an audience of policy-makers, academics, charity workers and journalists, followed by questions and discussion which will feed into their continuing research. Videos of the presentations can be seen on the CPC YouTube channel: [...]
EU Migrants in the UK
Key messages: EU-born migrants are more likely to be young, in employment, skilled with qualifications and in good health than UK citizens. Many of them are in partnerships with UK-born partners and a significant share of these couples have children. Withdrawing entitlements to social support from EU migrants, and thereby individualising their social risks, makes it much harder for work-focused migrants to use their skills and capabilities to the fullest extent – with significantly negative consequences for the UK economy. [...]
The OECD series Recruiting Immigrant Workers comprises country studies of labour migration policies. Each volume analyses whether migration policy is being used effectively and efficiently to help meet labour needs, without adverse effects on labour markets. It focuses mainly on regulated labour migration movements over which policy has immediate and direct oversight. This particular volume looks at the efficiency of European Union instruments for managing labour migration. [...]
Employment disparities leave ethnic minorities in the UK under-pensioned
by Athina Vlachantoni It’s no secret that some societal inequalities are not, shall we say, fair. Just do the numbers. Systemic income disparities between ethnic groups are found in many countries. Women earn less money than men in all of them. Pension gaps are the cumulative consequence. [...]
Population Europe reseachers Frans Willekens (MPIDR) and Cris Beauchemin (INED) and two further experts on migration summarize in a review article for Science the current state of knowledge
“All in all, we know far too little about migration to be able to draw reliable conclusions. The main problem is the missing data,” Frans Willekens (Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research) says. For this reason, he and his colleagues Douglas Massey (Office of Population Research, Princeton University, USA), James Raymer (School of Demography, Australia National University, Canberra) and Cris Beauchemin (Institute National d’Études Démographiques, Paris, France) call on both the research community and on political institutions to take action.

Migration is one of the major factors causing population change in Europe today. As a result, European societies have become more ethnically diverse over the last decades. Understanding societal developments among Europe’s heterogeneous population requires better insight in the life courses and family dynamics of migrants. [...]

A long and healthy life, isn’t that what we all wish for?  But what are your chances of living to 100? Can you influence this? How do your early years, your family life, where  you live, your lifestyle and your work affect these chances?  [...]
Migration has seen increased attention in recent years with over 214 million migrants worldwide. European societies are increasingly more ethnically and culturally diverse. Regardless of the reasons people leave their countries of birth, migration may impact the health status of migrants. European health systems, designed to cater to the needs of the majority population, are often ill-equipped to respond to those of newcomers and ethnic minorities. Better health outcomes for all segments of the population warrant the need for adapting health care and bridging the policy practice gap. [...]
