Frontières de la citoyenneté : enjeux de l’accueil des primo-arrivants

*  *  *

Published on Tuesday, November 13, 2018 by Anastasia Giardinelli

Summary

L’objectif de ce colloque international est de s’arrêter sur la question de la citoyenneté et sur les enjeux (humains, politiques, sociétaux, économiques) de l’accueil des primo-arrivants. Le colloque se propose d’apporter des éléments de réponse aux différentes questions liées à l’accueil et à l’intégration des migrants/es, en s’appuyant sur les expériences et champs d’intervention des diverses institutions que les primo-arrivants consultent. C’est donc l’occasion de réinterroger sous un prisme international les expériences, les politiques d’accueil et les outils de la citoyenneté.

Argument

The purpose of this international conference is to focus on the question of citizenship and the human, political, societal and economic issues related to the reception of migrant newcomers. The conference will bring together researchers and professionals representing state institutions, as well as civil society actors. The aim is to provide elements of response to questions related to the reception and integration of migrants, drawing on the experiences and fields of intervention of the various institutions with which newcomers come into contact. It is therefore an opportunity to re- examine through an international lens those experiences, policies and instruments related to citizenship and the reception of immigrants.

Thus, the proposals can relate to the following four axes:

The first axis proposes to re-examine concepts and terms such as migrants, immigrants, refugees, newcomers, etc., and to explore their various dimensions (sociological, historical, geographical, legal, human…).

The focus of the second axis is on insertion structures for newcomers: benefits and welfare services, social assistance, health services, psychological support, education, and socio-professional integration assistance. The challenges and issues specific to those structures and institutions will be analyzed.

The third axis will focus on integration, coexistence, tolerance, and citizenship in its various dimensions. In particular, proposals in this axis will look at citizenship in terms of rights and duties;

of its social and participatory dimensions; of its articulation with democratic values; or as participation in a collective vision of society.

Finally, the fourth axis will center on public policies of reception and integration, by examining  the national, local, regional, and international experiences of different countries: Morocco, France, Italy, Greece, Spain, Germany, Poland, Turkey, Algeria, Tunisia, Mauritania, Libya, Scandinavian countries... This axis will also include an examination of the experiences of civil society and of public institutions. It will present testimonies of actors present in the field, both through associative and public initiatives.

How do local communities welcome newcomers? What challenges do municipalities face? What role does the state play?

These are some of the possible themes and the list is non-exhaustive.

We welcome proposals from different disciplines (sociology, anthropology, geography, psychology, history, law, social work...), using various methodological approaches (comparative studies, case studies, theoretical analyzes...).
