Migration Impact Assessment to Enhance Integration and Local Development in European Rural and Mountain Areas

Deliverables

MATILDE matrix

D2.6 MATILDE matrix is the data collection framework developed in Task 2.4: with a step-wise approach, it creates a set of composite indicators to measure the impact of TCNs arrival and settling in, their spatial distribution and mobility across urban and rural areas.

2000 regional maps printed and distributed

D7.11 2000 regional maps printed and distributed. The maps will provide cartographic representations on migration to rural and mountain areas, based on Task 2.2. Eurac will coordinate the editing, printing and distribution in Subtask 7.4.5

Factsheet on the politics of integration and inclusion

D6.1 Factsheet on the politics of integration and inclusion, elaborating a review of existing political strategies, goals and programs related to integration at European, national and regional-local level. In Task 6.1, CUAS will coordinate all research partners in conducting a literature review to highlight the goals and guiding principles in the governance of migration and integration politics, considering their development across time in concomitance with key events from the 1990’s onward.

10 country-based economic policy briefings on policies and governance in the economic realm

D4.1 10 country-based economic policy briefings on policies and governance in the economic realm, focusing on the policies formulated for the integration of TCNs in the economic structure of the host society, giving particular attention to the ones formulated following the recent refugee peak highlighting and also highlighting policy developments in the long-term. In Task 4.1, GCU coordinates research partners in conducting quantitative analysis (desk research, policy content analysis) and qualitative research (5 interviews with stakeholders and practitioners from the above-mentioned categories at national and regional level per each MATILDE country).

Cartographic representation of MATILDE regions and TCNs stocks

D2.3 Cartographic representation of MATILDE regions and TCNs stocks based on the classification and on the database developed in Task 2.1. This will result in visual output to be printed and distributed at during project’s events.

Report on existing integration-political goals, programmes and strategies

D6.2 Report on existing integration-political goals, programmes and strategies at different levels, highlight existing political strategies at different levels (from European to local) and their interactions. In task 6.1, CUAS coordinates the preparation of the report based on inputs collected by research partners.

Comparative report on TCNs economic impact and entrepreneurship

D4.4 - Comparative report on TCNs economic impact and entrepreneurship including a policy overview, quantitative and qualitative findings on the economic impact of TCNs. In Task 4.4, GCU coordinates the comparison of national reports provided by all research partners. Specific attention will be devoted on how regional level regulations influence TCNs entrepreneurship and social entrepreneurship

Database on spatial features and TCNs distribution

D2.2 Database on spatial features and TCNs distribution based on GIS technology, created by the coordinator in Task 2.1 by combining spatial features and development characteristics of MATILDE regions. The database combines indicators on the employment sector, housing market, public financial resources, education infrastructures and (non)accessibility of infrastructures/urban centres. For the categorization of TCNs, the task sketches the spatial distribution of TCNs by using secondary stock data (e.g. foreign-born nationals at a specific place). Data on TCNs, will be collected at LAU2 level by all partners for their own region considering the selected timeframe of MATILDE project.

Report on conceptual frameworks on migration processes in rural areas

D2.4 Report on conceptual frameworks on migration processes in rural areas, developed in Task 2.2 and presenting a multi-dimensional conceptual framework for a better understanding of the spatially-located characteristics and the path-dependent and long-term effects of migration processes of TCNs to rural and mountain areas.

10 statistical briefings on economic impacts

D4.2 10 statistical briefings on economic impacts assessment: in Task 4.2, CUAS will coordinate the selection of models for quantitative analysis to be applied at national and regional levels to assess the impact of TCNs on the economic systems in the receiving contexts.

Stakeholders involvement plan

D2.8 Stakeholders involvement plan will detail the type of stakeholder, its level and its specific contribution for the MATILDE project, the adequate method and channels to engage them. Task 2.6 will define the Plan and guarantee the active and timely participation of stakeholders

Classification on spatial specificities and TCNs distribution in MATILDE regions

D2.1 Classification on spatial specificities and TCNs distribution in MATILDE regions using existing typologies based on criteria such as population density, degree of urbanization and spatial distribution of population. The coordinator will develop this classification in task 2.1

Comparative report and social innovation practices

D3.4 - Comparative report and social innovation practices is prepared by UEF in Task 3.4 to compare data across national and regional contexts in order to better understand how TCNs impact varies across countries and regions and how it influences the social dimensions of the receiving society. The report is compiled based on the national reports provided by partners in Task 3.3 and it includes a comparative overview of policy and governance, of the quantitative and qualitative findings of the social impact of TCNs and the identification the most interesting social innovation practices based on findings on Task 3.3.

10 country reports on social impacts

D3.3 - 10 country reports on social impacts focusing on qualitative impacts of TCNs arrival and settlement. In Task 3.3, UEF coordinates research partners in conducting in-depth and narrative interviews (at least 10 per country, at national or regional level), focus groups (at least 3 per country, at the regional level, with different stakeholders), SWOT for case-studies analysis and visual graphs for social network analysis at local level. Reports will focus in particular on practices of social innovation stemming from the direct, indirect and induced effects of TCNs arrival and settling in in destination contexts.

10 statistical briefings on social impacts

D3.2 - 10 statistical briefings on social impacts to provide an in-depth quantitative assessment of the 4 dimensions determining the social impact of migration at multiple-scales. In Task 3.2, UEF coordinates research partners in applying the MATILDE matrix and toolbox. The assessment will be conducted through a combination of different techniques such as descriptive and interpretative statistics (univariate and multivariate analysis), spatial econometric regression, etc... Data processing and interpretation is conducted to quantify the implications of the arrival and settlement of TCNs in terms of changes in the endowment of resources in rural and mountain regions. Each partner will deliver a country-based statistical briefing on the quantitative assessment of TCNs social impact.

13 quantitative briefing on the case studies

D5.2 - 13 quantitative briefings on the case studies, presenting data collected in Task 5.2 in the 13 locations where the local case studies are implemented. Quantitative briefings will cover both MATILDE Social Dimensions (MSDs) and MATILDE Economic Dimensions (MEDs). Specific attention will be placed on the impact of reception services for asylum seekers and refugees.

10 country-based policy briefings on Migration-related social policy

D3.1 -10 country-based policy briefings on Migration-related social policy: in Task 3.1, UEF coordinates all research partners in applying the Migration Governance Tools (MATILDE toolbox) to analyse migration-related social policies and governance related to TCNs integration process at different scales. The task leader UEF coordinates the analyses conducted by national partners (FAU, UU, GCU, CUAS/BAB, UEF, NBU, BILGI, INN, ZAR) through desk research, in-depth interviews (at least five) to major stakeholders and policy content analysis on multilevel governance, considering both vertical and horizontal distribution as well as migration-related social policies explicitly targeting TCNs and other policies that may indirectly affect social outcomes. Regional development policies and strategies will be also considered.

10 country reports on economic impacts

D4.3 10 country reports on the qualitative impacts of TCNs on the economic system of hosting societies at national and regional levels.
