RETRY – Resilience and Resignation among Transnational Roma and non-Roma Youths

Dr. Stefano Piemontese. Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Nando Sigona. University of Birmingham, Institute for Research into Superdiversity.

The EU-funded RETRY project (MSCA-IF 2019-2022) provides a theoretically informed, in-depth ethnographic, multi-sited and collaborative account of the movements into adulthood of underprivileged European youths “affected by mobility”.

REvolTURN – Managing migrant return through ‘voluntariness’

Reinhard Schweitzer. Supervisor: Sieglinde Rosenberger. University of Vienna, Department of Political Science.

The project REvolTURN (MSCA-IF 2017-2019) looks at public policies for the so-called ‘voluntary return’ of irregular migrants and (refused) asylum seekers – how they work in practice and whether they meet stated policy goals and discharge state obligations regarding migrants’ human rights. Through a close and comparative analysis of the Austrian and British return regimes, it examines 1) how voluntariness of return is constructed and framed in law, policy and public discourse, 2) which notions of voluntariness are crucial for policy implementation, and 3) what impact this has on migrants’ own decision-making about their return.

MIGSOL – Migration Solidarity and Acts of Citizenship along the Balkan Route 

Dr. Celine Cantat. Supervisors: Prof. Dr. Prem Kumar Rajaram and Dr. Violetta Zentai. Central European University, Center for Policy Studies.

The EU-funded MIGSOL project (MSCA-IF 2017-2019) examined practices of citizenship and political mobilisation with and by migrants and refugees along the Balkan route, and explored how they participated in the formation of political subjectivities that subvert the dominant political architecture of the European Union, still based on the nation-state and its citizen as the space and subject of political action.
