About the Project

Project term: April, 2014–March, 2017

Many more people migrate crossing borders in the 20th century and they have different types of legal statuses and purposes of movement. They take advantage of different kinds of travel documents and regulations of states for further travels. In this project, we call those people “migrants-refugees” and investigate their influence on the community development and social welfare of the host countries. This is the research project based on the achievement from the former term “Citizenship for Migrants and Refugees: A Comparative Study of Institutions and Practices of Inclusion and Exclusion from Nation-States,” and investigate with specific focus on the political participation of migrants-refugees. How do they commit to social environment surrounding them, and to what extent their existence can affect the social welfare of their residential countries? In order to answer these questions, the study focuses not only on the immigration policy of each country, but also on roles of citizenship as membership of the local communities, and tries multi-dimensional analysis about the issue.
