    But later, in the s, they became countries of final destination for waves of irregular migrants. Jews were around 4 to 5 percent of the [Eastern European] population and made up about 6 to 7 percent of the total number of migrants. Clearly, these arguments are not convincing. In Junethe government passed a law on municipal non-discrimination services. The presence of some 25 million Muslims in the 28 countries of the European Union is currently sparking debate, controversy, fear and even hatred.

    The array of policies includes, among other things, the promotion of Muslim integration in European countries by establishing structures for dialogue between representatives of Islam and the governments. Similar trends can be seen in Spain, Greece, the Netherlands, and France. The social unrest was almost concomitant with the deadly terrorist attacks in Madrid, inand in London, in View Images Many of the immigrants came from the poorest parts of the Austrian empire, which included Hungary, where this family was from. Like Germany, Holland has not been the theater of large-scale terrorist acts, but in MayPim Fortuyn, an anti-Islamic critic, was gunned down, and inthe filmmaker Theo Van Gogh was stabbed to death.

    Multiculturalism and Integration Historically speaking, the integration policies of several Western European countries, including especially the Netherlands and the UK, have been based on the ideological foundation of multiculturalism. This interview was edited for length and clarity. Why do some rich Arab countries finance and export fundamentalist movements while keeping a tight grip on protest and dissent at home? Families were divided, children and wives were abandoned, people became victims of industrial accidents and returned home disabled or unable to support themselves.

Migrants, minorities and security in Europe book

What is new about this? Two young Muslim women in Berlin. Search Keywords:. As long as European countries tolerate, in their midst, radical imams who preach intolerance and hatred, accept that foreign Muslim countries continue to finance the construction of Mosques, exert structural influence by reinforcing close religious ties with their migrants and look to the other side when conservative Muslim regimes crackdown on their reformists, the fight against radicalisation may prove an uphill endeavour.

Many terrorists are not religious but suddenly become fanatically religious in a sort of informal religious radicalisation.

Vigilantism against Migrants and Minorities

You have a totally different picture in Russia, where the imperial authorities actively encouraged Jewish emigration through pogroms, forcing around two million Jews—out of a total of 2. The first is identity-based radicalisation. Poland was so thrilled by this idea that it sent a commission to Madagascar to investigate.

Are there any successful models that could be emulated? As it stands, racial diversity in the European parliament will remain stagnant.

In a context in which European states are facing an identity crisis, an economic slump and high rates of unemployment, all of these events could only rekindle anti-Islamic sentiment. On the whole, I estimate that there are some 23 million Muslims living Migrants the 28 European states, three-quarters of whom are already European citizens by naturalisation or birth.

Written by an international team of contributors, the book features case studies from Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, and Asia. Each international expert from the United States or Europe surveys national statistical facts and research as well as political and theoretical debates critical to the issues.

Many success stories of Muslims in all sectors, from economy to culture, provide ample proof that there is no Muslim fatality. Such a postulate is both erroneous and dangerous, not only because Islam assumes the role of an internal enemy in a societal cold war between European societies and their Muslims, but also because the integration issue is disconnected from the socio-economic context and becomes the sole responsibility of Muslims.

In France alone, there are some Are radicalisation and extremism linked to economic marginalisation? What Can the EU Do? I also argue that in addition to faith-based radicalisation religiously-motivated groups or individualsthere is an identity-based extremism far-right partieswhich is no less dangerous, and Europe should confront both problems by drying up the ideological sources of extremism.

The issue of illegal immigration—already a significant problem in several European countries—has been dramatically compounded by increasing amounts of immigrants, growing skepticism concerning multiculturalist ideologies, and perceived potential threats of terrorism or radical extremism.

What is alarming, however, is that all integration policies did not prevent some young Muslim radicals from perpetrating horrific violent attacks in European countries and thousands from joining the fighting groups such as ISIS or Al-Qaeda.

Very often, commercial or strategic interests eclipsed European values. In many cases, land and maritime controls only served to displace the routes of migration, making the travel longer and riskier and making traffickers richer as they showed their ability to adapt to the new regulations.

In the early s, the European economic boom came to a halt. The linkage between immigration policy, the integration of new residents into society, national security, and a cornucopia of related issues, is a fairly new phenomenon.

We think around 30 to 40 percent of migrants eventually returned home or made multiple journeys. It was a brutal and horrible situation then—and it is again, today. This radicalism is not the result of failed integration, but rather local-global connections, which are linked to identity rupture and the exposure of young European Muslims to the unbearable images of destruction and violence in many Muslim countries, mainly those in the Middle East.

European leaders found themselves caught between alarmed rejectionists, who invoke financial costs, security risks and social challenges and who ask for more muscular policies to stem the flow of mass immigration, and vocal refugee advocates, who posit the problem in terms of human dignity and the necessity to protect, recalling the example of Jordan and Lebanon, which are hosts to more than a million Syrian refugees each.

When is Migration a Security Issue?

However, it is also true that poverty is often linked to poor parental control, dropping out of school and the lack of opportunities. Communism was not defeated by the power of arms, but by the power of ideals.

Nowadays, Buddhist monks organise mass killings and deportations of Muslims in Myanmar, and Jewish extremists colonise Palestine and abuse secular Jews in the name of God. But they may prove insufficient if European states persist in ignoring some disturbing facts.Legal status emerges as one of the most important current determinants of social security and health care benefits for migrants in a country (84,).

If there were true universal health coverage, then migrants would have adequate benefits and their legal definition would not affect their health care.
