Anthropogenic effects on population genetics of phytophagous insects associated with domesticated plants

Alvarez, Nadir ; Hossaert-McKey, Martine ; Restoux, Gwendal ; Delgado-Salinas, Alfonso ; Benrey, Betty

In: Evolution, 2007, vol. 61, no. 12, p. 2986-2996

The hypothesis of isolation by distance (IBD) predicts that genetic differentiation between populations increases with geographic distance. However, gene flow is governed by numerous factors and the correlation between genetic differentiation and geographic distance is never simply linear. In this study, we analyze the interaction between the effects of geographic distance and of wild or...

SWISSCIT Index on Citizenship Law in Swiss Cantons: Conceptualisation, Measurement, Aggregation

Arrighi, Jean-Thomas ; Piccoli, Lorenzo

(nccr on the move ; 18)

In the Swiss federal context, the acquisition of citizenship through ordinary naturalization, the enjoyment of electoral rights as a foreign resident, and the retention of the franchise as a Swiss citizen abroad is not uniformly defined through a single federal law but co-determined by the cantons. In this explanatory note, we introduce SWISSCIT, a set of indicators measuring how inclusive...

La mobilité dans le sport professionnel : le cas des hockeyeurs helvétiques migrant vers l'étranger

Bangerter, Nicolas ; Piguet, Etienne (Dir.)

Mémoire de master : Université de Neuchâtel, 2016.

Dès les débuts de sa période « moderne », dans le courant du XVIIIe siècle en Angleterre, le sport a engendré différents types de mobilités. Le contexte actuel, lié à la mondialisation, produit, ou en tous les cas facilite l’évolution des différents mouvements directement en lien avec le sport. Que ce soit à l’échelle d’un pays, d’un continent, ou de la planète, la...

Blurred Lines: Migration and Mobility in EU Law and Policy

Bauloz, Céline

(nccr on the move ; 4)

While the movement of persons is at the heart of the European construction, it has been conceptualised differently with regard to third-country nationals and citizens of the European Union (EU). In the former case, it is referred to as ‘migration’ and, in the latter, as ‘mobility’. This traditional perception of migration and mobility is however not set in stone but is deemed to evolve...

Changements environnementaux et migration en Afrique de l’Ouest. Une revue des études de cas

Brüning, Loïc ; Piguet, Etienne

In: Belgeo, Revue Belge de Géographie, 2018, vol. 1, p. 1-26

This paper reviews existing knowledge on the link between environmental changes and migration in West Africa. Aspects related to rainfall variations, temperature increases, droughts, and sea level rises are particularly addressed. Forty-three case studies are presented, which is almost an exhaustive representation of the state of research on the topic. By focusing only on this sub-region and...

Family, Boundaries and Transformation. The International Mobility of Professionals and Their Families

Cangia, Flavia ; Levitan, Déborah ; Zittoun, Tania

In: Migration Letters, 2018, vol. 15, no. 1, p. 17-31

Two dominant images of migrant professionals, also known as “expats”, have long been common, in the social sciences: on the one hand, they were described as super-mobile individuals, who easily move between places with no time frame in mind, with the openness to engage with diversity; on the other hand, more recent studies challenged the idea of “expat” cosmopolitanism, and investigated...

Dahinden, Janine

In: Wiley-Blackwell Encyclopaedia of Race, Ethnicity and Nationalism (The), 2015, p. 1-3

The multiethnic and multilinguistic character of Switzerland has represented a puzzle for major scholars on European nationalism since the nineteenth century. Research shows that this multiethnicity is a pivotal element of pride and central to the common Swiss imaginary of a “nation of will,” which embraces local, cantonal, and linguistic identities. In parallel, this particular case of...

A plea for the ‘de-migranticization' of research on migration and integration

Dahinden, Janine

In: Ethnic and Racial Studies, 2016, p. 1

Migration and integration research has been institutionalized over the last few decades. However, an increasing number of voices has been calling for more reflexivity, criticizing the nation-state- and ethnicity-centred epistemology that often informs this discipline. Consistently with this line of reasoning, I argue that migration and integration research originates in a historically...

Cabaret Dancers’s Transnationality

Dahinden, Janine

(Working Papers MAPS ; 3)

Cabaret dancers working in night clubs in Switzerland represent a heterogeneous group that embodies a particular form of female mobility. Some of them are genuinely “world travelers”: they work in erotic clubs in Switzerland, Japan, or Lebanon, go home regularly to be with their children or their families, or continue their education. In this article, I am interested in understanding the...
