C’est avec un immense plaisir que nous vous annoncons la parution du premier rapport de recherche réalisé dans le cadre du projet Migration de mariage et technologies de l’amour: comprendre la gouvernementalité de la migration de mariage en Europe et en Amérique du Nord dirigé par Anne-Marie D’Aoust, professeure au département de sciences politiques et membre du CRIEC de l’Université du Québec à Montréal.

This article aims to bypass polarized debates that either accuse migrants of abusing state forms of social protection or accuse states of excluding migrants from welfare provisions. It seeks to do so by analyzing the intersection of formal and informal forms of social protection. 

In Kazakhstan and in Russia, the rights of migrant workers from Central Asia are regularly violated, declared today FIDH and its partners in Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan, in Bishkek.

L'article traite du système de points (Points Based System - PBS) pour l'immigration, le comparant aux tests du gouvernement. Il examine la mise en œuvre du PBS et les cinq niveaux relatifs aux travailleurs migrants hautement qualifiés, travailleurs qualifiés, travailleurs non qualifiés, étudiants et travailleurs temporaires et la mobilité des jeunes. Il considère le raisonnement derrière le PBS et regarde si le système fonctionne pour la Grande-Bretagne. Il note les problèmes découlant de l'absence d'accent sur l'égalité.

Ce document examine les cas de Ibrahim et Teixeira qui permirent de constater que l'article 12 du règlement 1612/68 a survécu à la mise en œuvre de la directive 2004/38, la directive sur les citoyens. Le résultat est que des enfants de travailleurs migrants qui sont à l'école et leur « responsable primaire» peuvent rester dans l'État membre sans être soumis à des conditions d'autosuffisance longtemps après la cessation du travail ou de départ, de décès ou de divorce du travailleur. L'article discute des résultats spécifiques dans les cas et leurs ramifications plus larges.

This paper examines the cases of Ibrahim and Teixeira which found that Article 12 of Regulation 1612/68 has survived intact the implementation of Directive 2004/38, the Citizens’ Directive. The outcome is that EU migrant workers’ children who are in education and their ‘primary carer’ can remain in the Member State without being subject to conditions of self-sufficiency long after cessation of work or departure, death or divorce of the worker. The article discusses the specific findings in the cases and their broader ramifications.

While families all over the world enlist the help of family, friends, or paid day care for their children, the need to do so is especially strong for individual women (single or divorced) who work outside the home to earn a living. Women who migrate for work in another country, in search of better pay, may need to have children stay in the homes of others in the country of origin. That "good mothering" may take many forms was not initially recognized under Dutch immigration law. The approach in the Netherlands eventually brbought it into conflict with European human rights law and with the merging immigration law of the European Union (EU).
