PUMOMIG International Conference: Theodoros Fouskas, “Solidarity versus hostility: Pro-migrant and anti-migrant citizen mobilizations in Greece since 2015” [25 Oct. (24-25 Sept.) 2019, Brussels
Public opinion, mobilizations and policies concerning asylum seekers and refugees in anti-immigrant times (Europe and Belgium)
Global challenges and local solutions
24 and 25 October 2019 – Royal Stables of Brussels – Place du Trône 4, 1000 Brussels
Recent events in Europe, from the beginning of the so-called “reception crisis” to the present day, illustrate that strong polarizations mark the way cities responded to the arrival and transit of asylum seekers. Local contexts often showed autonomy and contrasted national trends in terms of both opinions and practices. In some instances, local politicians and citizens refused to take responsibility over reception duties assigned by their national government, and even rejected the arrival of asylum seekers to their territory. In other cases, local actors opposed restrictive state policies and anti-immigrant trends, showing specific ideas of hospitality and developing field practices that go far beyond initial reception. In these instances, local governments and agencies, as well as CSOs, NGOs and the overall ecosystem of cities proved to be fundamental not only in the support of short-term management of reception structures, but also in the processes of social, economic and cultural integration of de facto refugees.
Day #1 – 24 OCTOBER 2019
The conference will gather scholars and researchers in the field of migration and asylum, with the aim to open debate around the findings of the research project: Public opinion, mobilizations and policies concerning asylum seekers and refugees in anti-immigrant times (Europe and Belgium) – PUMOMIG, funded by the Belgian Federal Science Policy Office (BELSPO/BRAIN-be). The research was conducted between 2017 and 2019, and coordinated by a research team involving three Belgian universities (ULB, ULiège and KULeuven), as well as research partners in five European countries: Hungary, Italy, Germany, Greece and Sweden. PUMOMIG’s main objective is to gain an in-depth understanding of the factors and social dynamics influencing local attitude polarizations towards refugees and asylum seekers in contemporary societies. To this end, PUMOMIG observed and analyzed contextual forms of mobilization by local populations in favour of or against newcomers. Fieldwork has been conducted in the areas of reception centres and places with high concentrations of asylum seekers, including occupations and informal settlements. Participants included local politicians, actors in the reception structures, civil society organizations, mobilized citizens and mobilized migrants. PUMOMIG’s approach has embraced quantitative and qualitative methodologies, ethnography and field observation (read more).
The research book “The refugee reception crisis in Europe. Polarized opinions and mobilizations” will be presented during the first day of the conference.
Day #2 – 25 OCTOBER 2019
By bringing together scholars in the field of migration and asylum, as well as local, national and international (EU) actors in the management of the refugee issue and the reception of asylum seekers in Europe, the conference aims to open debate on alternative localized practices and solutions. Members of local governments, institutions and agencies, NGOs and Civil Society Organizations, EU policy makers and stakeholders, international foundations and field actors will participate in three thematic roundtables.
- The role of local political authorities and institutions
What is the role of local political institutions and actors? What is the impact of local political trends and discourses on the decision-making process and policy evaluation at the national and EU level? What is their impact on the implementation of practices and the development of alternative solutions by civil society actors? The roundtable will gather local politicians and policy makers with the aim to share and discuss localized experiences of management of refugees and asylum seekers, highlighting cooperation and conflicts with regional, national and supranational governments, as well as with the civil society in their jurisdiction.
- The role of CSOs and citizen initiatives
What is the role of local Civil Society Organizations? Do they have an impact on the different levels of governance on matters concerning reception and integration policies? Do citizen initiatives set up formal organizations and structures to participate in the reception and integration of asylum seekers? The roundtable will gather field actors and representative members of organizations, collectives and platforms who will present their experiences of solidarity and reception. The aim is to highlight their relationship with both political authority and citizens in their localities.
- The perspective of European actors
What can EU actors do to stimulate the dialogue between different levels of governance? How can they contribute to the development of policies and strategies aimed at creating a favourable environment for local governments and actors to develop and implement solutions to the refugee issue? The roundtable will gather representatives of EU institutions as well as members of international NGOs and foundations active in the migration and asylum domain. The aim is to stimulate debate on possible shifts in EU policy-making and legislation towards the local dimension of governance in European cities in order to support locally-driven, durable and sustainable strategies to manage the refugee issue.
Attendance is free of charge but places are limited. Registration is required and includes online access to the conference programme, free PDF copy of the book on request, welcome reception, buffet lunches and refreshments. Register now. The full programme and timetable will be available soon. The conference main entrance will be from Place du Trône 4, 1000 Brussels. More info on the conference venue can be found here.

ECPR General Conference 2019: Theodoros Fouskas, “Pro-Migrant and Anti-Migrant Mobilisations in Greece: Citizen Initiatives of Solidarity and Hostility Concerning Migrants, Asylum Seekers and Refugees [7 Sept. (04-07 Sept.) 2019, Wrocław, Poland
Public Attitudes and Forms of Mobilisation Concerning Asylum Seekers and Refugees in the EU
Since the beginning of the so-called “refugee crisis” in 2015, the problematization of international migration and the securitization of EU external borders, in the aftermath of the global financial crisis, created the conditions for strong polarization of public opinion towards migrants in general, and those fleeing from armed conflicts or other crises and seeking for asylum in particular. This is reflected in the way European civil society communities have mobilized, and political institutions have dealt with the issues of reception and integration of refugees and asylum seekers. Social and political actors including politicians and policy makers, NGOs and CSOs, as well as activists, mobilized citizens and also mobilized migrants, have adopted a variety of discourses, strategies and practices ranging from extreme-often violent-opposition, to unconditional support.
The aim of this panel is to discuss the factors and social-political dynamics influencing the strong polarization of opinions, discourses and practices towards refugees and asylum seekers in contemporary societies in Europe. It focuses on the perception of the European population about refugees/asylum seekers and vice versa, as well as the forms of mobilization (pro-/against-) and the practices of reception and integration developed since the beginning of the so-called reception crisis in 2015. The panel gathers quantitative and qualitative research on public opinion, on- and off-line discourses, ethnographic research on attitudes and practices, on the interactions at the local level between the majority populations and newly arrived migrants, and on the policy structure developed to provide reception and integration. Fieldworks cover different countries in Europe including: Belgium, Greece, Germany and Slovenia.
Part of the papers included in the panel concern research conducted within the project “Public opinion, mobilisations and policies concerning asylum seekers and refugees in anti-immigrants times (Europe and Belgium)” PUMOMIG, funded by the Belgian office for Political Research BELSPO, within the framework of BRAIN-be programme.

The surge in population replacements and influx of refugees, emanating from a wide range of factors, including but not limited to gross Human Rights violations, financial crisis and environmental changes, has underlined the need to focus our efforts in effectively and fairly integrating those populations within the host country’s society in a way that helps different cultures and identities thrive along. “Educating for Peace” seeks to live up to the goal of no lost generation. The goal of the event is to enhance public-private partnership as a mean to ensure that replacement will not hinder one’s right to access education.

This book examines the immigration phenomenon which constitutes a major concern to modern societies like Greece. It is directly associated with a multitude of parameters affecting the reception societies, their institutions, and immigrants’ distinctiveness and particularities. Greece has developed, from a once sending country of immigrants who moved in the first half of the 20th century to overseas countries and during the post-war period to Western European countries after the fall of their respective regimes, to a receiving country of immigrants. For the very first time, Greek society had to deal with immense immigrant flows from the neighbouring Balkan countries, the Republics of the former Soviet Union as well as considerable numbers of immigrants from African, Middle East and Asian countries. The book explores theoretical and empirical approaches, analyses the new policies and presents the latest researches in Greece, interrogating the relationship between immigration and immigration policy, institutional context of immigration and asylum management, work and employment, education, access to health care and social services, coexistence with the native population, formation of community associations and representation and judicial treatment and criminalization of immigrants. Each of its chapters, written by experts, explores how the conditions in the country, the policies, the politics, the values and attitudes influence the process of immigration and subsequently affect the immigrants, migration, and the nation as well. Contributors argue and suggest tangible solutions to imperative issues, explore current patterns and policies of immigration, while their contributions balance these and other conflicting concerns that require the substantive and expert discourse offered in this book. Focusing on the rational management of legal and illegal/irregular migration flows and the pursuit of justice and maintenance of security, coupled with respect for fundamental human rights, the volume is a practical handbook for researchers and students, government institutions or agencies and those involved in the phenomenon of immigration and immigration policy.

The article centres on the repercussions low-prestige work has on the collective organization and representation of immigrant workers. This micro-sociological analysis focuses on the cases of Egyptian, Albanian, Bangladeshi, Palestinian, and Philippine immigrants in Athens and how the frame of their work and their employment affects their participation in their immigrant work associations. Evidence from in-depth interviews proves that the majority of immigrants do not claim established workers’ rights and do not seek membership in any unions. On the contrary, they rely on a network of friends and relatives for support and develop individual behaviours and alternative solutions to achieve survival and protection.
