I call them illegal crossings because those who enter our country via Roxboro Road have to walk past a sign that says it is illegal to cross the border. The pact seeks to make migration — for any reason — a recognized right.
Two Visions Of Immigrants, Refugees, And National Identity
As for the rights of the receiving nation to object to having their borders overrun? M — the non-binding motion that condemns Islamophobia — has been in the works for years under the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, which have a disproportionate influence at the UN. Looks like that is part of the migration pact, too. Bill C, the bill that will make it impossible to build pipelines, and Bill C, the bill that bans tanker traffic off the northern B.
Landlocking Alberta oil and crushing our energy industry flows from the unrealistic commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions committed to in the Paris Accord, which is also referenced in the migration pact. The other way of looking at it is this: when did we give our prime minister the unilateral authority to sign away our sovereignty? PDF datoteka kB. TXT datoteka 54 kB Za ogled je potrebna prijava.
Migration and Identity in a Post-National World
Bajt, Veronika avtor. Setting nationalism and national identity in the theoretical framework of migration, the paper asserts that nation-states remain in strong control over who belongs and who is categorised as a foreigner. At first glance, the ethnic nation is nearly an absolute opposite of the immigrant nation — it is based on destiny rather than on free choice, and it is past-oriented rather than future-oriented. In this view, the civic nation strikes a middle ground between those two mutually exclusive options.
The absolute opposition between immigrant and ethnic nations is, however, problematised by many examples of immigrant-settler nations which, within the process of modern European colonization, claimed an ethnic pedigree. To include Israel under the category of the immigrant ethnic nation presupposes that we make a qualitative difference between a modern Israeli identity, linked to the Zionist state-building project, and a pre-modern diasporic Judaism that referred to statehood only in relation to the biblical past or the messianic future Attias, Benbassa: The secularization or politicization of the religious concept of statehood into the Zionist project of return and state-building amounted to a radical transformation of Jewishness: migration and settlement in Palestine and the establishment of the state of Israel there coincided with the creation of a national identity in the modern sense of this word.
As the title of the play by Theodor Herzl — Das Altneuland — intimates, the Zionist project combines the opposite traits of the New- and Old-World identities: a community of destiny was to be realized as a community of free choice and radiant future. Unlike the revolutionary French or Americans, who conceived of their republics as the homelands of all humankind, Zionists conceived of Israel as the homeland for Jews only as they are defined by blood lineage and religion.
In the USA, Australia and Canada, immigration and the settling of immigrants coincided with nation-building. As these nations were created out of the people who originally belonged to other nations, their immigration and integration policies have been in the long run closer to the universalistic and inclusive end of the continuum. They have encouraged permanent immigration and treated most legal immigrants as future citizens. Glazer ; Takaki ; Kymlicka France is a good example of how a civic nation in Europe may occupy a middle position between an immigrant civic and endogenous ethnic nationhood.
The French founded their modern identity not only on past ethnic history but also on the projected political future, that is, on a conscious choice of the republican form of government. This political form allegedly expressed universal values of humankind so that, in principle, France was supposed to be the true fatherland of all freedom-loving people across the whole world. Since the time of Napoleon, this revolutionary universalism provided an ideological cover for the French colonial project, and, simultaneously, made France quite open and inclusive as far as immigration was concerned.
The integration pattern, however, had been distinctly assimilationist. The inclusion of others be they colonized or immigrants required that they abandon their particular ethnic identities and fully buy into the French national culture which allegedly incarnated universal values of humanity Brubaker ; Dumont ; Favell A different example of the civic nation is Great Britain. As an empire, Great Britain was supposed to be a universal commonwealth for many particular regional, religious or ethnic groups.
They could retain their differences under one imperial roof, albeit under the condition that they respected the superiority of English culture. The development of liberal norms with their antiracist and antidiscriminatory thrust brought about a transformation of this hierarchical cultural pluralism into a liberal multiculturalism.
The latter view conceives of partial ethnic identities as complementary to an overarching Britishness. Once this goal proved unattainable during the s, Britain subscribed to a zero-immigration tenet Favell ; Grillo ; Hansen ; Parekh Whereas political membership in Britain and France was traditionally conferred by ius soli that is, on the basis of the place of birth , in Germany it was conferred by ius sanguinis that is, on the basis of blood lineage.
This constitutive element of German nationhood was further strengthened by the homeland role which the Federal Republic of Germany played for East Germany and the East European German diaspora: this role meant that West Germany had to care for all ethnic Germans no matter where they lived or whether they were formally German citizens or not. This implied very exclusivist and particularistic attitudes to immigration and integration in the years of post-war reconstruction.
Whereas Germans conferred an automatic right to citizenship on all ethnic Germans, regardless of whether they had ever lived in Germany, they denied this right to their labour immigrants even if they had resided in the country for a long time Brubaker ; Dumont , ; Joppke The right of return has been denied to the Palestinian exiles of — originally more than ,, now around 3,5 million. The Arabs who stayed — originally ,, now more than 1 million — have been given citizenship but many of their rights have been curtailed the right of movement, land property rights, political rights etc.
There is no other avenue for immigration and naturalization than the ethno-religious one. Since the first Intifada — , which caused the frequent closure of the territories occupied in , and especially since , when the Israelis began to regulate entry into Israel proper from the territories, a growing number of guest workers have been accepted there were around , of them in Israel in with no opportunity to integrate and naturalize Dieckhoff ; Kimmerling ; Lustick ; Smooha Despite initial differences, stemming from different national histories and identities, France, Great Britain and Germany have moved toward common ground in their immigration and integration policies over the last several years.
They have all explicitly recognized that they are countries of immigration and formulated outlines of their policies in this field accordingly.
For France, this acknowledgement was the least difficult. In a sense, even if it is not an immigrant nation, modern France has always been a country of immigration. A report ordered by the socialist government of Lionel Jospin from Patrick Weil and two statutes stemming from it — the Law Guigou and the Law Chevenement — took to its consequences the universalist strand of the French tradition with its roots in the ideology of and acknowledged overtly the experience of immigration which had characterized the country since the middle of the 19 th century.
It was not that simple in Britain and Germany. Rather than to im-migration, Britain had been accustomed for centuries to colonialist e-migration, and the post-war influx of non-European immigrants seemed to be merely an unintended consequence of an effort to maintain an overseas empire especially the Old Commonwealth rather than a normal state of affairs.
In this latter case, the established tradition of ethnic nationhood together with the fact of a divided Germany and millions of Germans in Eastern Europe made the Federal Republic of Germany the homeland for all ethnic Germans and thus excluded in advance the very concept of the settling and national integration of ethnically and culturally alien populations.
The facts on the ground that is, the massive presence of second- and third-generation immigrants and the impossibility of stopping immigration but also economic expediency and a series of progressive ideas made sizeable parts of the political elite in both Britain and Germany re-assess their established national self-conceptions.

In Germany this development was completed on the legal level by passing a new Nationality Law in that introduced jus soli. Around the turn of the century, France, Great Britain and Germany have all explicitly recognized that they are countries of immigration and formulated quite similar migration- and integration-policy frameworks. Their migration policies converge on two points. On the one hand, active immigration policy schemes are designed to attract and recruit young and high-skilled labour migrants who it is intended should [my alternative suggestion is: who are considered likely to] contribute to economic growth, fill labour shortages, and compensate for aging home populations, thereby ensuring sufficient input into the welfare and pension systems.
On the other hand, an extensive apparatus is deployed to restrict and limit the immigration of unwanted low-skilled, culturally alien groups who are portrayed as liable to disrupt the social order and drain welfare state resources. For this restrictive purpose, special measures have been introduced to fight illegal immigration.
France, Britain, and Germany also converge on the strategic guidelines for their integration policies.cacevigaver.gq

On the one hand, they try to build a clear procedural line connecting immigration to naturalization so that the passage from settling and residence to citizenship is as easy as possible. On the other hand, they have shifted the onus of accommodation onto the immigrants.
There has been a strong tendency in recent years to temper the celebration of diversity driven by the liberal multiculturalism of the s and s with stress on the obligation of immigrants to adapt and accept the basic values and cultural givens of the receiving society. We can conclude that the European move from immigration denial to its endorsement has got stuck half-way: rather than invite strangers of different origin to share a common future, as the immigrant nation ideally does, the societies of western Europe still prefer to ground their common political identity in their own national origins, and, consequently, invite only those strangers who may contribute — economically or culturally — to this predefined project.
But even this half-opening seems to be too much for the post-communist countries which have recently joined the EU. Only recently have they recovered their national sovereignty which they conceive in ethnic terms, however tempered these terms are by their liberal constitutions. All rights reserved.
