Globalisation postindustrielle et milieux locaux : une typologie

Guex, Delphine ; Crevoisier, Olivier

(Working Papers MAPS ; 1)

Dans la société industrielle, le développement des régions dépendait de leur insertion dans la globalisation par la production, de leur positionnement dans la division du travail : c’est la compétitivité. Désormais, la globalisation se joue également au niveau de la consommation. Cette dimension est abordée dans la littérature, par exemple par Markusen (Markusen, 2007; Markusen &...

The Determinants of Naturalization in Switzerland between 2010 and 2012

Wanner, Philippe ; Loretan, Alicia

(nccr on the move ; 13)

Naturalization is an important phenomenon for countries, not only because of its implications (it grants duties and rights to new citizens) but also because of its policy-sensitive aspect. In Switzerland, it is also a complex phenomenon because of the diversity of procedures at the canton and commune levels. Knowledge of the determinants of naturalization is still lacking. In this context, this...

State’s Discretion and the Challenge of Irregular Migration – the Example of Permanent Regularization Practices in Spain and Switzerland

Della Torrel, Lucia

(nccr on the move ; 12)

In the heated debate around irregular migration, the so-called regularization measures represent one of the main bones of contention – presented by some as the only possible solution to irregular presences and contested by others as rewards for illicit behaviour. Despite their many differences, such measures have a common core – discretion. They are, in fact, gracious concessions of the State...

Language Roulette – The Effect of Random Placement on Refugees’ Labour Market Integration

Auer, Daniel

(nccr on the move ; 11)

The labour market integration of refugees represents a key challenge for policy makers and has emerged as one of the most divisive topics in public debate. European countries have been pressured to establish fair and transparent methods of placing asylum seekers among the European states and into different regions within their national borders. In this paper, I highlight the unsurprising yet...

Left out by the State, Taken in by the Region? Explaining the Regional Variation of Healthcare Rights for Undocumented Migrants in Italy, Spain, and Switzerland

Piccoli, Lorenzo

(nccr on the move ; 10)

The interaction of norms of democratic inclusion in multi-level states might lead to divergent ideas about citizenship and rights across different territorial levels of government. Theoretically, it could be imagined that a person is treated as a citizen with full social rights by the regional authorities, while having no legal citizenship status in the state. By focusing on health care rights...

The Signaling Value of Labor Market Programs

Liechti, Fabienne ; Fossati, Flavia ; Bonoli, Giuliano ; Auer, Daniel

(nccr on the move ; 9)

This paper investigates how employers interpret participation in active labor market programs for hiring decisions. Drawing on signaling theory, we assume that employers use program participation as a signal for a candidate’s qualities. On the basis of a factorial survey experiment, we simulated a hiring process for two job positions, a low and mid-skilled one, in the hotel sector. Recruiters...

Revisiting Ethics in Correspondence Testing

Zschirnt, Eva

(nccr on the move ; 8)

Questions of research ethics always arise when planning a correspondence test to study discrimination in the market place. However, the issue is addressed relatively little in published correspondence tests with authors usually referring to the two seminal articles written in this field (i.e. Banton (1997) and Riach and Rich (2004)). Since then correspondence testing has become more widespread...

Measuring Hiring Discrimination – A History of Field Experiments in Discrimination Research

Zschirnt, Eva

(nccr on the move ; 7)

Ethnic and racial discrimination in the hiring process is a common and documented problem. Scientists from different backgrounds and numerous countries have tried to measure the extent of this form of discrimination, mostly by using field experiments such as audit or correspondence tests. This paper will provide an overview of the literature on measuring discrimination in more general terms as...

Changing Gender Representations in Politics of Belonging: A Critical Analysis of Developments in Switzerland

Fischer, Carolin ; Dahinden, Janine

(nccr on the move ; 6)

The literature increasingly recognises the importance of gender in defining the boundaries between national societies and migrants. But little is still known about the history and changes of mechanisms that shape the role of gender as category of difference. Based on a historical case study of Switzerland this paper examines how gender is implicated in the politics of migrant admission and...

Pending Case C-438/14 Nabiel Peter Bogendorff von Wolffersdorff – Or is it Peter Mark Emanuel Graf von Wolffersdorff Freiherr von Bogendorff?

de Groot, David A.J.G.

(nccr on the move ; 5)

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...
