Cet article traite de dix cas de migration familiale qui furent décidées par la Chambre des lords ou la Cour suprême («la Cour») en commençant par Huang en 2007 et se terminant avec Quila en 2011. Il soutient qu'ils incarnent collectivement un ensemble de principes sur la relation entre le contrôle de l'immigration, les tribunaux et la vie familiale des migrants qui ont permit aux liens affectifs des migrants et de leurs familles de recevoir, pour la première fois, une reconnaissance appropriée devant les tribunaux.

This article discusses ten family migration cases decided by the House of Lords or Supreme Court (“the Court”) starting with Huang in 2007 and ending with Quila in 2011. It argues that they collectively embody a set of principles about the relationship between immigration control, the courts, and migrants’ family life which have enabled the affective ties of migrants and their families to receive proper recognition in the courts for the first time.

Cet article analyse les aspects clés de la régulation d'entrée et de séjour des conjoints migrants en provenance des États de l'EEE. Il démontre qu'il y a des différences de régulation, particulière entre les États d'Europe de l'Est et du Sud par rapport aux États de l'Ouest et du Nord de l'Europe, mais, dans la majorité des cas, le nombre de différence est limité. L'article connecte cette "ressemblance familiale" au concept plus large d'européanisation. Même là où il n'y a pas d'obligation légale, les normes légales européennes et la pratique dans d'autres États européens circonscrivent ce qui est possible. 

This article analyses key aspects of the regulation of entry and stay of spousal migrants in eea member states. It shows that there are differences of regulation, particularly between states in Eastern and Southern Europe and states in Northern and Western Europe but, in most cases, the amount of divergence is limited. The article connects this ‘family resemblance’ to a broad concept of Europeanisation. Even where there is no binding legal obligation, European legal norms and the practice in other European states largely circumscribe what is possible.

Ce numéro spécial vise à étendre la discussion sur la migration et le sexe en explorant les façons dont les expériences sexospécifiques des hommes de la migration restent marginalisés.

This special issue seeks to extend the discussion of migration and gender by exploring the ways in which men’s gendered experiences of migration remain marginalized.

Although gender offers valuable perspectives for understanding migration law, masculinity has received little attention. In family migration, men are generally regarded as economic agents and family as marginal to their lives, a view that is difficult to dislodge because it serves the purposes of governments anxious to reduce unwanted immigration. In British immigration law, measures have often explicitly or implicitly relied on such gender-based assumptions.

Cet article examine le traitement des «mariages de complaisance» ou «mariages blancs» en droit de l'immigration au Royaume-Uni. Ces mesures impliquent inévitablement un degré de barrière morale et culturelle, les décideurs étant tenus de comparer le simulacre de mariage présumée contre le modèle d'une relation «authentique». Cependant, le document fait valoir que la fonction de ces mesures a souvent été de renforcer la capacité d'exclure ou supprimer immigrants indésirables.

This paper considers the treatment of ‘marriages of convenience’ or ‘sham marriages’ in UK immigration law. Such measures inevitably involve a degree of moral and cultural gate-keeping as decision-makers are obliged to measure the alleged sham marriage against the template of a ‘genuine’ relationship. However, the paper argues that the function of such measures has often been to enhance the ability to exclude or remove unwanted immigrants.
