The aim of this chapter is to analyse specific Polish experiences and relations between immigration and integration policies since 1989, when the country became a destination for predominantly temporary and transit migrants. At the same time, Poland has continued to be a country of net emigration; its considerable outflow of young workers contribut...

Celem niniejszego opracowania jest wprowadzenie do problematyki migracji (zwłaszcza międzynarodowych) i integracji imigrantów w kontekście doświadczeń Unii Europejskiej (UE) i jej państw członkowskich wraz z prowadzonymi w tym zakresie politykami. Migracje i integracja są tu traktowane jako dwa oddzielne zagadnienia, jednak blisko ze sobą powiązane...

Zdanie „Na zachodzie bez zmian” było typowym niemieckim komunikatem z frontu zachodniego, podczas I wojny światowej, kiedy pozornie nic się nie działo, a jednocześnie każdego dnia wojna przynosiła swe krwawe żniwo w postaci kolejnych zabitych i rannych. Sto lat później na Zachodnim Brzegu Jordanu jest również bez zmian i choć nie ma tu jasno określ...

Project
ARICA is a Polish-Norwegian research project financed under Norway Grants the "Applied Research" program. The project is constructed on two dimensions: one is a social science based on the several actors interviews and second is a geospatial analysis based on HR/VHR satellite data. The project aims to contribute to geospatial analysis of the evolution of the different forms of Settlements for Refugees and Internally Displaced People (IDPs) fleeing from war zones, dire socio-economic conditions and environmental disasters. These forms of Settlements (both official and unofficial camps) will be investigated in two selected cases: Mtendeli (Tanzania) and Kutupalong Refugee camp (Cox Bazar Bangladesh). We will apply socio-geographical approach, which investigates the insiders’ perspective of the mutual relation between the natural environment and human activity. The specific objectives of this WP are to: 1. Diagnose the mutual relation of Refugee/IDPs Settlements and natural environment considering its impact on the food security during three phases: - Establishment; - Development; - Limits: Relocation, Restructuring, Legalization or Closure. 2. Delivering socio-geographical recommendations for implementing good practices of sustainable and environmentally friendly Settlement’s management from insiders’ perspective.
Project
Analyse and demonstrate examples of multi-temporal interaction between inhabitants and their environment in different camps types and locations to detect, monitor and predict short-term changes like rapid anthropogenic (installation/removal of Settlement); food security; natural destruction/impact (landslides, floods, etc.); and the long-term changes reflected in the different proportions of the land use/cover the different terrains share. Analyse and understand the socio-economic drivers of such environmental impact. Demonstrate the added value of remote sensing data analysis in monitoring and management of areas not accessible for “in-situ” measures due to security issues. Provide a concept of a future satellite-based operational monitoring system. Develop the roadmap for supporting the organization/management of such areas and minimize the negative impact of an interaction between inhabitants and the environment. Develop a socio-environmental informative system on refugee/IDP camp areas (formally and informally established settlements) in an online geo-platform. Raise public awareness of the environmental changes taking place in the camp areas, their impact on the camp population and the impact on the provisions from the humanitarian assistance programs to help the inhabitants on their way to self-reliance.
