Article
Using the European Social Survey data we studied migration attitudes in 19 European countries, including Czechia. We introduced and tested the assumption about the bi-dimensional nature of migration attitudes, where personalized attitudes towards immigrants as individuals might differ from the generalised attitudes toward immigration as a phenomeno...

This contribution advances knowledge of contemporary Moldovan migration and is the first comparative description of the situation of Moldovans in Czechia and Italy. Our specific objective is to review evidence about how the concept of the migration-development nexus applies to the Moldovan situation. In the absence of comparable primary data on Mol...

Pohled na jevy pojící se s příchodem a životem migrantů v hostitelské zemi nemusí být vždy jednotný a může se odlišovat podle různých úhlů pohledu. Naší otázkou je, zda se liší postoje k migrantům jako jednotlivcům a postoje k mezinárodní migraci jako společenskému fenoménu. A existuje-li tato odlišnost, tak ji vysvětlit. Postoje k jednotlivcům pře...
Article
Migration theory and international policy recognises that migrant remittances play significant roles in shaping economic, social, and political transformations in origins and destinations. However, nobody deals with how migrants experience and use values. To contrib- ute to the development of migration theory we integrate insights from modernizatio...
Article
Full-text available
A locality characterised by a high concentration of economic activities of immigrants, predominantly immigrants from Vietnam, has emerged on the outskirts of Prague. This article explores whether or not this locality—in terms of its function, structure, mutual relations among entrepreneurs and physical morphology—resembles certain rather well-known...

This article presents the concept of social capital and highlights its use in the economic performance of Ukrainian entrepreneurs in Czechia. The social capital stands as one of the important resources, which can be used by migrant entrepreneurs in creating their own businesses and ethnic economies. The concept of social capital with its different...
Article
This article contributes to the discussion of everyday interactions between a settled majority population and new immigrants in an urban neighbourhood with recent experience of immigration. It analyses daily interactions between the majority population and Vietnamese immigrants in one Prague neighbourhood in an effort to identify both tensions and...
Data
Full-text available
Drawing on statistical analyses, we seek to uncover differences among immigrant business activities and the majority of business activities in Czechia. We presume that immigrants have been subject to similar conditions for business as the majority (especially at the beginning of 1990s), mostly because of the unique situation after an extended per...

Article
Czechia - A new immigration country? This article is based on the Czech national report on international migration that was prepared within the IDEA research project. Like other research springing from the IDEA project this article follows the conceptual framework created within the IDEA research activities (see FASSMANN & REEGER 2008; ARANGO 2007;...
Article

The project explored several topics through quantitative as well as qualitative research techniques: a questionnaire survey (N=159) and interviews (N=37) with irregular migrants living in the Czech R...
Article

This paper focuses on spatial distribution of immigrants in districts of Czechia.

Then we examine the issue empirically by correlation and regression analyses trying to find out which factors explain the immigrants...

Project
Ptroject deals with a topic on which there has been little or no research at all in Czechia. It seeks to examine the nature of the financial remittances (their size, forms, frequency and use) and social remittances (norms, behaviour, identities and social capital) of Moldovan migrants in Prague (Czechia) and Torino (Italy). In parallel to this, the migration/integration patterns of this migration are analysed in a wider context, whilst the situation in Moldova as such is studied too. A comparative perspective (the reality in two different agglomerations and between two different groups of Moldovans) is used – those with and without Romanian passports/citizenship) and ‘mixed-methods’ approaches (both quantitative and qualitative ones) are applied. The design and other aspects of the project make it well equipped to shed light on the role current migration has in the development of Moldova, to assess migration/integration policies in both of the destination countries and the EU, and to formulate some policy recommendations for statistics on remittances in Czechia.
