IMER Lunch Seminar:

What does it mean to be an “active citizen” in Scandinavia?

Time: Thursday 15th of November 2018, 12.30 – 14.00
Place: Christies gate 15, Sampol, Seminar Room at 2nd floor

About the seminar

In current debates about multicultural societies, ideas about active citizenship sometimes play a part. The increase of ethnic, cultural and religious diversity in Scandinavia has led to integration and naturalization policies that focus on social cohesion and stress the need for a shared set of values, identities and commitment to active participation in society. What kind of engagement is seen as good and legitimate, and what kinds of engagement are seen as illegitimate? For this IMER lunch seminar, Noor Jdid from PRIO and SKOK will present insights from her PhD project, which explores active citizenship in Norway and Denmark, among both minority and majority populations. She draws on ethnographic fieldwork in five different neighbourhoods in Oslo (Tøyen, Holmlia, Røa) and Copenhagen (Østerbro, Sydhavn), consisting of 69 life history interviews and 13 focus group discussions with residents of these neighbourhoods, as well as expert interviews and participatory observation. The analysis shows that the intersection of place, gender, class and ethnicity often shapes citizens’ understandings of their own civic engagement. When determining what ‘counts’ as a legitimate and valuable contribution to society, the research participants drew gendered and racialized discursive boundaries between the public and the private spheres.

A light lunch will be served. All welcome!

5/12 Divanhana från Bosnien-Hercegovina framträder i Göteborg

October 17th, 2018 No comments

Torsdag 6 december 2018 kl. 19:00–21:00

Musikens Hus
Djurgårdsgatan 13, 41462 Göteborg

Divanhana från Bosnien-Hercegovina rör sig i gränslandet mellan pop, jazz och klassisk musik.
Med sitt filmiska och klangrika sound har de lyckats sammankoppla ett nutida urbant uttryck tillsammans med rötter ur den traditionella balkanmusiken, benämnd som ”sevdalinka”.

Sevdalinka står för en folkmusikgenre med lång tradition i Bosnien-Hercegovina, som även är mycket populär i Montenegro, Serbien, Kroatien och Makedonien.

Ursprungligen kommer ordet från turkiskans ”Sevda”: kärlek. Musiken är nära besläktad med genrer som flamenco, fado och blues.

12/9 After Deportation – The Case of Afghan Deportees

September 11th, 2018 No comments

Global Migration Seminar next week:

After Deportation – The Case of Afghan Deportees
September 12, 13:15-15:00
Centre on Global Migration

Global Migration Seminar:

After Deportation – The Case of Afghan Deportees
September 12, 13:15-15:00

The main focus of this talk is post-deportation outcomes. It focuses on what happens to Afghan asylum seekers after deportation from Sweden.

Based on the experiences of Afghan deportees, Khosravi argues that deportation, rather than being the end of migratory adventure, becomes just another phase of their deportspora, in which they are exposed to a continuum of expulsion.

Co-hosted by CGM and MERGU. Please note the different place and time!
Lecturer: Shahram Khosravi, Professor in Social Anthropology, Stockholm University

When: 13:15 – 15:00, September 12
Where: Department of Sociology and Work Science, Pilgatan 19A, room Pilen

More about the seminar

The main focus of this talk is post-deportation outcomes. It focuses on what happens to Afghan asylum seekers after deportation from Sweden. Although there is a growing literature on detention and deportation, academic research on post-deportation is scarce.

Khosravi’s previous research on irregular migration and undocumentedness in Sweden bring out the significance of analyzing what happens after deportation.

Based on the experiences of Afghan deportees, he argues that deportation, rather than being the end of migratory adventure, becomes just another phase of their deportspora, in which they are exposed to a continuum of expulsion.
About the speaker

Shahram Khosravi is a leading international scholar in the field of anthropology of Iran and the Middle East, migration, human rights, forced displacement and Professor in Anthropology at Stockholm University.

His most recent research publications include After Deportation. Ethnographic Perspectives, edited volume, Palgrave Macmillan, 2017; Precarious Lives: Waiting and Hope in Iran, University of Pennsylvania Press, 2017.

22/9 Angereds bokmässa

August 22nd, 2018 No comments

Med Angereds bokmässa vill vi skapa en alternativ arena för skrivande personer – etablerade och oetablerade – både i Angered och andra förorter i Göteborg. Syftet är att lyfta litteraturen och poesin i förortsområden.

Genom bokmässan vill vi också spegla samhällets och litteraturens mångfald och rikta ljuset mot hur representationen ser ut i Litteratur-Sverige. Vi hoppas både att det ska knytas nya kontakter här och på många kreativa samtal om hur vi tillsammans kan arbeta för en mer inkluderande och jämlik framtid inom den svenska litteraturbranschen.

Bokmässan ska innehålla mycket av det som den årliga bok- och biblioteksmässan på Svenska Mässan gör: bokbord, författarframträdande, läsningar, panelsamtal och mycket mer. Med fri entré hoppas vi nå personer som annars inte går på Bok & Bibliotek i centrum.

Initiativet kommer från lokala författare och genomförs av Kulturhuset Blå Stället i samarbete med Folkets Hus Hammarkullen, Blå Ställets Vänner och Angereds bibliotek med stöd av ABF Göteborg och Kultur i Väst.

17/4 8th Annual International Symposium on Human Trafficking and Migrant Smuggling

January 17th, 2018 No comments

8th Annual International Symposium on Human Trafficking and Migrant Smuggling
Thon Hotel Brussels City Centre, Brussels
Tuesday 17th April 2018

Website: https://www.publicpolicyexchange.co.uk/events/ID17-PPE2?ss=bk&tg=bp1

The trafficking in human beings has, over the last decade, increased significantly. According to the International Labour Organisation, in 2012 there were 20.9 million people were victims of forced labour and sexual exploitation in the world. In the period 2013-14 EU countries reported 15,846 victims of human trafficking, 76% of which were women and girls according to a European Commission report. It is estimated that two out of three registered victims (67%) were trafficked for sexual exploitation, 21% for other types of forced labour and 12% for other types of exploitation.

The EU Directive 2011/36 and the EU Strategy towards the Eradication of Trafficking in Human Beings (2012-2016) have, in recent years, served as guidance for the implementation of effective means of preventing trafficking, protecting victims and prosecuting traffickers. In December 2017, the European Commission issued a communication through which it encouraged stepping up the efforts to set out a comprehensive strategy for EU actions aimed at eradicating human trafficking. A set of targeted actions have been identified to that end, in three priority areas: disrupting the traffickers’ business model and untangling the trafficking chain, providing better access to appropriate care and realising the rights for victims and intensifying a coordinated and consolidated response, both within and outside the EU.

With the recent migratory, economic and security challenges, the phenomenon of trafficking in human beings continues to represent an issue which requires a coherent and coordinated response to address its effect upon individuals, society and the economy. According to the Modern Slavery Index 2017, an annual study by Verisk Maplecroft, over the last year modern slavery risks have risen in almost three quarters of the European Union, as 20 countries recorded a drop in their scores. The research highlighted Greece, Italy, Cyprus, Romania and Bulgaria as the five countries posing the highest risk in the EU, all of which are key entry points for migrants who are particularly vulnerable to exploitation.

In light of the new commitment of the European Union to adopt new targeted actions to combat the growing challenge of human trafficking, this timely international symposium provides an invaluable opportunity to discuss and analyse effective mechanisms to prevent, address and strengthen multi-agency response. Delegates will have the chance to share best practice and discuss ways to protect the victims of human trafficking. Public Policy Exchange welcomes the participation of all key partners, responsible authorities and stakeholders.

Delegates will:

Explore how to build effective multi-agency cooperation to ensure the conviction of perpetrators
Consider ways to safeguard victims by strengthening victim support
Take part in interactive discussions with key stakeholders and share best practice in the protection of trafficking victims
Examine how to better identify, protect and support victims of sexual exploitation through the delivery a person-centred safeguarding system
Share ideas on and transfer current knowledge of available training and education for frontline staff to ensure that they are qualified to identify and assess victims of trafficking
Evaluate the importance of partnership working and discuss how best to implement effective multi-sector collaboration

18/1 Utställning Eriksbo magazine

January 12th, 2018 No comments

Eriksbo Magazine

Eriksboskolans elever i åk 3-6 har gjort en tidning som nu visas i en utställning.

Konsthallen Blå stället 18/1-8/2.

VÄLKOMMEN PÅ VERNISSAGE!
Torsdag 18 januari. Tid: 15-18. Invigningstal kl 16.

Konsthallen Blå Stället, Kulturhuset Blå Stället.
Angereds Torg 13.

”Eleverna borde få se att lärandet är på riktigt,
att deras kunskaper och röster är viktiga
– nu och för framtiden!”

Så resonerade personalen på Eriksboskolan under våren 2017 när de analyserade elevernas kunskapsresultat.
Hur skulle måluppfyllelsen kunna höjas ännu mer, samtidigt som arbetet skulle ge mersmak för framtidstro,
tillit till sin egen förmåga och betydelse i sitt eget liv?

Skolans språkutvecklande fokus var under året kommunikation.
För de äldre eleverna bestämdes det att skrivandet skulle stå i centrum.
Sedan tidigare fanns ett samarbete med författaren och journalisten Marie Oskarsson.
Det kändes naturligt att fortsätta det i ett nytt projekt.
Resultatet skulle bli elevernas egen tidning: Eriksbo Magazine”, formgiven av Elisabeth Sivertson.

18 januari öppnar utställningen Eriksbo Magazine på Konsthallen Blå Stället.
Där visas tidningen, samt övriga projekt under temat kommunikation som elever och personal arbetat med hösten 2017.
