Reconciling migrants’ well-being and the public interest – Welfare
state, firms and citizenship in transition (Trends in social cohesion
No. 19) (26/05/2008)

This volume has two purposes. First, it looks at why migrant welfare is
not always acknowledged as forming part of the general well-being of
host countries. And second, by suggesting alternative approaches, it
sets out to help bring about a “just, multicultural society”, in which
rights and mobility are realities for everyone. The radical changes
currently under way in the welfare state, in private enterprise and in
the various manifestations of citizenship are a perfect starting point
for showing that the rights of migrants and nationals, far from being in
competition, actually reinforce each other. While rejecting the
essentialisation of “diversities”, the authors call for greater cultural
accommodation in all walks of life – in institutions and businesses,
social services and hospitals, families and associations – to better
meet the needs of multicultural societies.

Policies on irregular migrants, Volume II - Republic of Armenia, Greece,
Russian Federation (27/05/2008)

The insecurity which irregular migrants face on a daily basis because of
the unlaw¬fulness of their residence prompted the European Committee on
Migration (CDMG) to assess their situation in Council of Europe member
states. The aim of the exercise was to pool and evaluate national
experience and to draw up proposals on dealing with irregular migrants
and improving co-operation between countries of origin and host
countries. Five countries volunteered - Armenia, Germany, Greece, Italy
and the Russian Federation - and submitted some aspects of their
national policies regarding the situation of irregular migrants for
evaluation. After volume I, which contains a summary of the project and
the national reports of Italy and Germany, volume II looks at the
situation of irregular migrants in Armenia, Greece and the Russian
Federation.

Migrants and co-development - Recommendation Rec(2007)10 and explanatory
memorandum (30/04/2008)

The links between migration and development are high on the political
agendas of countries of origin and host countries. Many migrants are
interested in contributing to development in their countries of origin.
What can be done to help them? Recommendation Rec(2007)10 on
co-development and migrants working for development in their countries
of origin provides a detailed policy framework for member states of the
Council of Europe to help contribute to the success of migrants'
development projects and initiatives and help ensure that they have a
real and lasting effect on development in their countries of origin. It
includes both general principles and practical measures concerning
issues, from questions of part¬nership building and mobility to project
support and training.

Life projects for unaccompanied migrant minors - Recommendation
Rec(2007)9 and explanatory memorandum (30/04/2008)

Recommendation Rec(2007)9 on life projects for unaccompanied migrant
minors stresses the importance of placing the best interests of the
child at the heart of all government policy and practice in this area. A
life project is an individual tool based on a joint undertaking between
the child and the relevant authorities for a limited duration. It
defines the child's future prospects, promotes his or her best interests
without discrimination and provides a long-term response to his or her
needs. Each project aims to develop the capaci¬ties of the child,
allowing him or her to acquire and strengthen the skills necessary to
become independent, responsible and active in society. Life projects
should seek to promote the social integration of the child and his or
her personal and cultural development, as well as to open access to
housing, health, studies, vocational training and employment. The
recommendation is also aimed at improving the capacities of member
states to manage migration of unaccompanied migrant children. It
underlines the impor¬tance of co-operation between all the countries
involved and co-ordination by the relevant authorities.
