Migrant workers from the Philippines are ubiquitous to global capitalism, with nearly 10 percent of the population employed in almost two hundred countries. In a visit to the United States in 2003, Philippine president Gloria Macapagal Arroyo even referred to herself as not only the head of state but also “the CEO of a global Philippine enterprise of eight million Filipinos who live and work abroad.†Robyn Magalit Rodriguez investigates how and why the Philippine government transformed itself into what she calls a labor brokerage state, which actively prepares, mobilizes, and regulates its citizens for migrant work abroad. Filipino men and women fill a range of jobs around the globe, including domestic work, construction, and engineering, and they have even worked in the Middle East to support U.S. military operations. At the same time, the state redefines nationalism to normalize its citizens to migration while fostering their ties to the Philippines. Those who leave the country to work and send their wages to their families at home are treated as new national heroes. Drawing on ethnographic research of the Philippine government's migration bureaucracy, interviews, and archival work, Rodriguez presents a new analysis of neoliberal globalization and its consequences for nation-state formation.

Dieser Sammelband zeigt die vielfältigen Verbindungen von Migration und Demokratie auf. In Zeiten zunehmender transnationaler Migration stellt sich die Frage nach der politischen Partizipation von Migrantinnen und Migranten auf einer Vielzahl von Ebenen: Im Ziel- wie im Herkunftsland, in der Kommune, durch transnationales politisches Engagement sowie auf der regionalen und globalen Ebene. Die Beiträge des Bandes behandeln eine Vielzahl von Fragen im Spannungsfeld von Migration und Demokratie: Was sind die normativen Grundlagen für eine Beteiligung von MigrantInnen? Werden Demokratien im Umgang mit Migration ihren eigenen Werten gerecht? Welche Formen der Partizipation gibt es jenseits von Wahlrecht und Staatsbürgerschaft? Und welche Rolle können MigrantInnen in Demokratisierungsprozessen einnehmen?

Wurde Migration früher meist als zusätzliche Bürde für Entwicklungsländer aufgefasst, rücken jetzt stärker ihre Potenziale für Entwicklung in den Blick. Dieser Paradigmenwechsel kann nur erfolgreich sein, wenn er auf allen politischen Handlungsebenen vollzogen und dabei die Perspektive erweitert wird: von den Interessen der Einwanderungsländer auf die der Migranten und der Auswanderungsländer. Der dreifache Nutzen in der Migrationspolitik ist eine Herausforderung, zu der sich viele Fragen stellen: Wie weit lassen sich Migrationsströme überhaupt kontrollieren bzw. steuern? Welche Rolle spielt dabei der "Markt" und welche der Staat? Wie lässt sich wirtschaftliche Prosperität mit sozialem Zusammenhalt in Einklang bringen? Die Bertelsmann Stiftung hat im Rahmen des Reinhard Mohn Preises 2015 eine weltweite Recherche hierzu durchgeführt. Diese Publikation skizziert die aktuellen Trends und Herausforderungen für die Migrationspolitik der Zukunft sowie den Diskussionsstand zur Triple-Win-Perspektive. Untersucht werden gute Praxisbeispiele verschiedener Länder und Organisationen, die Aspekte fairer Migrationsgestaltung veranschaulichen. Schließlich werden Impulse für neue Ansätze und Empfehlungen für eine effektive und faire Migrationspolitik gegeben. Dieses Kompendium guter Praxis will Verantwortliche in Politik, Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft unterstützen, den potenziellen Dreifachnutzen von Migration durch kohärente Strategien und internationale Zusammenarbeit zu verwirklichen.

Der Begriff des Migrationsregimes erfreut sich großer Beliebtheit. Er verspricht einen analytischen Zugriff auf die Komplexität der Beziehung von Migration und Regulation. Dabei wird er jedoch sehr unterschiedlich genutzt und gedeutet. Die Herausgeber des Sammelbandes verstehen diese Vielstimmigkeit als einen Aufruf zur Debatte. Aufbauend auf einem längeren Austauschprozess auf Tagungen und Workshops haben sie Forscher*innen, die zentrale Fachrichtungen einer interdisziplinären Migrationsforschung und deren unterschiedliche Perspektiven vertreten, eingeladen, die Grundannahmen, Potentiale und Herausforderungen des Ansatzes zu diskutieren. Die so versammelten kritischen Einsichten in ein Schlüsselkonzept der modernen Migrationswissenschaft leuchten Wege aus, wie Fragen von Machtverteilung, Agency und Aushandlung systematischer in die Migrationsforschung einbezogen werden können.

Mass migrations, diasporas, dual citizenship arrangements, neoliberal economic reforms and global social justice movements have in recent decades produced shifting boundaries and meanings of citizenship within and beyond the Americas. In migrant-receiving countries, this has raised questions about extending rights to newcomers. In migrant-sending countries, it has prompted states to search for new ways to include their emigrant citizens into the nation state. This book situates new practices of ‘immigrant’ and ‘emigrant’ citizenship, and the policies that both facilitate and delimit them, in a broader political–economic context. It shows how the ability of people to act as transnational citizens is mediated by inequalities along the axes of gender, race, nationality and class, both in and between source and destination countries, resulting in a plethora of possible relations between states and migrants. The volume provides cross-disciplinary and theoretically engaging discussions, as well as empirically diverse case studies from countries in Latin America and the Caribbean that have been transformed into ‘emigrant states’ in recent years, offering new concepts and theory for the study of transnational citizenship. This book was originally published as a special issue of Identities: Global Studies in Culture and Power.

Home to Ellis Island, New Jersey has been the first stop for many immigrant groups for well over a century. Yet in this highly diverse state, some of the most anti-immigrant policies in the nation are being tested. American suburbs are home to increasing numbers of first and second-generation immigrants who may actually be bypassing the city to settle directly into the neighborhoods that their predecessors have already begun to plant roots in—a trajectory that leads to nativist ordinances and other forms of xenophobia. In Lady Liberty’s Shadow examines popular white perceptions of danger represented by immigrants and their children, as well the specter that lurks at the edges of suburbs in the shape of black and Latino urban underclasses and the ever more nebulous hazard of (presumed-Islamic) terrorism that threatening to undermine “life as we know it.” Robyn Magalit Rodriguez explores the impact of anti-immigrant municipal ordinances on a range of immigrant groups living in varied suburban communities, from undocumented Latinos in predominantly white suburbs to long-established Asian immigrants in “majority-minority” suburbs. The “American Dream” that suburban life is supposed to represent is shown to rest on a racialized, segregated social order meant to be enjoyed only by whites. Although it is a case study of New Jersey, In Lady Liberty’s Shadow offers crucial insights that can shed fresh light on the national immigration debate.

In a globalized economy that is heavily sustained by the labor of immigrants, why are certain nations defined as "ideal" labor resources and why do certain groups dominate a particular labor force? The Philippines has emerged as a lucrative source of labor for countries around the world. In Marketing Dreams, Manufacturing Heroes Anna Romina Guevarra focuses on the Philippines—which views itself as the "home of the great Filipino worker"—and the multilevel brokering process that manages and sends workers worldwide. She unravels the transnational production of Filipinos as ideal migrant workers by the state and explores how race, color, class, and gender operate. The experience of Filipino nurses and domestic workers—two of the country's prized exports—is at the core of the research, which utilizes interviews with employees at labor brokering agencies, state officials from governmental organizations in the Philippines, and nurses working in the United States. Guevarra's multisited ethnography reveals the disciplinary power that state and employment agencies exercise over care workers—managing migration and garnering wages—to govern social conduct, and brings this isolated yet widespread social problem to life.
