La tension entre le droit au regroupement familial prévu par les directives européennes et le souci des États membres de protéger leur souveraineté en régulant la migration a suscité une attention et une inquiétude accrues, notamment concernant les relations familiales frauduleuses (en particulier les mariages de complaisance). Cette contribution se penche sur les formes de contrôle autorisées dans la perspective du droit européen et se questionne à savoir si les pratiques nationales sont conformes au droit européen et aux droits fondamentaux.

The tension between the right to family reunification as laid down in European Directives and Member States’ concern to protect their sovereignty in regulating migration has resulted in growing attention to and concern about fraudulent family relationships (especially marriages of convenience). This contribution addresses the question of what forms of control are permissible from a European law perspective and whether national practices are in conformity with European law and fundamental rights. 

The UK government is considering allowing other forms of financial support - other than the sponsoring spouse's income - to be included for the purpose of the minimum income requirement, in some circumstances. Thus, the decision-maker could consider the minimum income requirement met if other sources of income, financial support or funds are taken into account. 

This study seeks to consider how marriage migration to the UK has been regulated from 1900 to the present day, as well as analysing some of the contributory factors to and consequences of such regulation. Immigration in general often raises acute tensions across political boundaries and marriage migrants have raised particular socio-political issues which various administrations have attempted to address over the years. Issues of race, gender, culture and identity and different theorisations of the limits of state power in this area have all been instrumental in contributing to the regulation of marriage migration since the early 1900s.

Depuis 2011, le Canada a détenu plus de 200 enfants canadiens au Centre de détention d'immigrants de Toronto. Le rapport recommande que le Canada mette en place des alternatives à la détention d'enfants, plutôt que de les détenir dans des centres de détention et les séparer de leurs parents.

 

Le rapport de 57 pages fait le suivi du rapport qui avait été publié en septembre 2016, “No Life for a Child”: A Roadmap to End Immigration Detention of Children and Family Separation. Le nouveau rapport réitère que les familles détenues devraient être relâchées et avoir accès à des alternatives communautaires à la détention. 

Since 2011, Canada has housed more than two hundred Canadian children in detention in Toronto’s Immigration Holding Centre, alongside hundreds of formally detained non-Canadian children, according to the report Invisible Citizens: Canadian Children in Immigration Detention (PDF) from the University of Toronto’s International Human Rights Program (IHRP). The report recommends that Canada urgently implement alternatives to the detention of children rather than confining them in immigration detention facilities or separating them from their detained parents.

 

The 57-page report is a follow-up to the IHRP’s September 2016 report on non-Canadian children in immigration detention, “No Life for a Child”: A Roadmap to End Immigration Detention of Children and Family Separation. The new report reiterates that families in detention should be released outright or given access to community-based alternatives to detention, such as reporting obligations, financial deposits and guarantors.

This guidance tells you how to consider an application for a residence card made by a family member of a British citizen.

Discrimination between the sexes concerning the transmission, acquisition or retention of nationality, in particular the dependence of a married woman on her husband’s nationality, was written into the nationality laws of many states in the nineteenth century. This form of discrimination had started to provoke protests from international women’s associations, from the early twentieth century on. After the First World War, in a period marked both by the rise of nationalism and by the acquisition of women’s suffrage in many countries, the debate took a further international turn. This article analyses, from an international perspective, the arguments of the various protagonists in a debate which revived the tensions between individualism and familialism, and provided an opportunity to reformulate the parameters of women’s citizenship.

"Dans la préface qu’elle donne au livre de son ancienne doctorante (2008), Françoise Thébaud souligne qu’il s’agit là d’une « histoire sociale et genrée des politiques nationales d’immigration et de naturalisation, et des pratiques administratives qui les mettent en œuvre », à partir du cas de Marseille, au cours des dernières années de la Troisième République (1918-1940). Linda Guerry s’attelle à cette tâche en se confrontant à des milliers de documents puisés dans les fonds archivistiques parisiens (Archives nationales) et marseillais (archives départementales des Bouches-du-Rhône, archives municipales, archives de la Chambre de commerce) [...]".
