O. Policy as symbolic statement: international response to

1999. 213-33 pp. Chapel Hill, North Carolina. In Eng.
"Traditional studies of state policies tend to focus on the achievement of the policies' stated ends. But policies, as systems of meaning and expressions of legitimate statehood, signal various meanings to national and international audiences. In this article, we demonstrate the importance of the symbolic and international realms by investigating the impact of population policies on patterns of financial assistance from international donor organizations. We find that developing countries with policies are more likely to (1) receive population assistance, and (2) receive greater amounts of funding than are countries without policies. These results suggest that studies of policy outcomes should not only evaluate local, intended consequences, but how national policies as international symbols may foster other types of consequences."

"This paper analyzes a two-period foreign-aid model where assistance can be given in the form of consumption or population-control aid. Population size in period 2 is endogenous. Using the family of ethical principles called critical-level utilitarianism (CLU), we examine the properties of ethically optimal resource allocations. Our results show that the direction of the ethical response of population size to changes in the cost of population control and the size of the grant depends on the relationship between the critical level of well-being, an ethical parameter, and the standard of living in the recipient country."

"The growing process of differentiation of our society which has led to specific policies addressing the issues of gender and age-stratification (emancipation policy, child policy, youth policy, policy for the aged, policy for the handicapped, policy combating social exclusion) undoubtedly cannot be amalgamated into one large family policy, yet the family dimension should be taken into consideration in all these specific policies, as it should be taken into account in the general policies addressing social, economic, and cultural issues." The geographical focus is on the countries of Europe, excluding Eastern Europe.

"A tight taboo prevents demographers and United Nations agencies from confronting demographic entrapment. Defections from this taboo are apt to be policed by the U.S. Department of State; the presumed reason for this is that radical reduction in number of births in the South (one child families) would question resource consumption in the North. The major health programme of the new millennium has to be a one child world, linked to moderation in resource consumption in the North. Entrapment is merely the worst of many problems (poverty, malnutrition, etc.) in which population plays a large part; to make it taboo...is to hinder the resolution of these other problems also."

The ways in which global population policies simultaneously facilitate racial inequality, class exploitation, and gender subordination are of particular interest. It further explores the relationship between repressive reproductive polity, or `reproductive imperialism', and the current trends toward increasing international economic polarization. An approach to the understanding of population policy that highlights the reproductive and productive capacities of African women offers a particular vantage point from which to examine this relationship between population control and global capitalist interests."

Results from a series of surveys carried out in various European countries in the early 1990s on attitudes and acceptance of population policies are presented. "The main goal of these surveys was to analyse the values and attitudes affecting couples' decisions regarding procreation, the perception of the advantages of having children, Europeans' aspirations in life, their favourite living arrangements and their preferences in the task of reconciling work and family for mothers. The impact of population-oriented policy on the workplace and family was also considered." The countries involved were Austria, Belgium, the former Czechoslovakia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and Switzerland. The focus in this volume is on a comparative perspective among the various countries in which the surveys were conducted.

"The last two censuses of China have shown that fertility in the province of Guangdong had declined less precipitously than in the rest of China. The observation made here is that the relatively moderate decline in the province's fertility appears to be due to a relaxed implementation of the official one-child policy in some rural areas of China, including rural Guangdong.... [Results suggest] that, within rural Guangdong, population policy had a stronger impact on fertility decline in the economically disadvantaged Mountain counties than in its more developed areas such as the Delta counties of the Han and Pearl Rivers."

China's one child family policy. British Medical Journal, Vol.
319, No. 7215, Oct 9, 1999. 992-4 pp. London, England. In Eng.
This is a general description of China's one-child policy based on information gathered in frequent visits over the past 25 years and a review of the published literature. "The one child family policy was developed and implemented in response to concerns about the social and economic consequences of continued rapid population growth. Implementation was more successful in urban areas than rural areas. Social and economic reforms have made rigorous implementation of the policy more difficult. The main criticism of the policy is its stimulus to discrimination against females, who may be aborted, abandoned, or unregistered. The policy has eased some of the pressures of rapid population increase on communities, reducing the population by at least 250 million."

"This study tests a model for the impact that Ceausescu's pro-natalist policies had on the Romanian fertility rate between 1967 and 1989. Using time-series analysis, the authors' findings show that the Ceausescu regime continually struggled with the Romanian population to increase the national birthrate. As a result of the regime's policies, there was a significant increase in overall fertility between 1967 and 1989, when the Ceausescu regime was overthrown.... This article also presents a model of what has happened to the Romanian fertility rate since 1989, showing that there has been a significant decline in fertility in the post-Communist period."

The author argues that a focus on the reproductive health of women, including the support of sexual and reproductive autonomy and the attainment of gender equality, is the only effective replacement for the older concepts and practices of population policy, whose focus was on reducing fertility directly. Using the example of Mexico, she demonstrates that efforts to improve reproductive health lower the fertility rate by opening up alternatives to motherhood for women, rather than by simply filling an "unmet need" for family planning.

Florence, Italy. In Eng.
"The history of abortion in China is closely linked to the evolution of the country's population policy over the past four decades. Abortion in China has been legal since 1953 and is widely available through services offered by the country's national family planning program. In 1971...the government of China...decided to make a concerted effort to lower demographic growth by means of an effective birth planning campaign and services backed up with legal and safe abortion. Within a decade, in 1979, China strengthened its policy and imposed...the One-Child Family Policy. Ethnic minorities were at first exempt from demographic policies but more recently pressure has been increasingly applied to them to control their fertility. Abortion is now prevalent among nearly all Chinese ethnic minorities.... The paper represents an effort to reverse the gap and confusion in the existing literature on ethnic group response to population and family planning policies in China."

"A review of studies which find a positive impact of tax structure on American fertility suggests this effect will increase with the tax benefits legislated by the 1997 $500-per-child tax credit. The tax credit also resembles pronatalist family allowances in other developed countries. First, however, the article investigates the intent of the tax credit, showing that key supporters hope it will increase fertility among tax paying Americans. Lastly, the pronatalist undercurrent of the tax credit suggests that future efforts will push for further increasing the tax benefits of children in order to increase the American birth rate."

Bevölkerungsforschung: Wiesbaden, Germany. In Ger.
This article examines the effects of China's one-child policy on population dynamics in general and on families in particular. The author notes that contrary to expectations, first births still constitute only 50% of total births due to the large number of unapproved or unregistered births. There has been no significant trend toward later marriage and first birth as yet; in fact, maternal age at first birth has declined. Rural areas have more large families than urban ones, and also have the highest sex ratio. The author concludes by sketching out the elements of governmental family policy, which consists of programs to enforce family planning and distribute contraception, coupled with sanctions for higher-order births. He also notes the high level of circumvention of China's family policies, causing unreliable data and future population levels significantly higher than predicted. On the other hand, demographic aging is predicted to become a problem for China by the year 2040.

A model is developed to evaluate the demographic effects of pronatalist family policies. The author concludes that in industrialized countries, the urge to reproduce is being counterbalanced by an urge to stabilize one's personal existence by participating in modern societal life, including employment. It is suggested that the only way to increase fertility would be to strengthen the value of families at the expense of the current social system, which has to a certain extent replaced them. The author does not consider this a realistic proposition.

"Fifty years of Independence and forty-five years of planned interventions for population control--where is India now and where does it want to go?... There have been significant transitions over this time, including rapid policy changes during the last decade. On the one hand, these changes have meant the designing of a comprehensive programme in accordance with new, internationally affirmed approaches. On the other hand, frequent policy programme shifts have also led to uncertainty and confusion among programme personnel.... What is being suggested here is that national policy should accommodate itself better to different situations in different parts of India. The RCH [reproductive and child health] programme is supposed to be client-based and, to the extent that approach actually becomes a reality, the different needs in different regions will, of course, tend to be met. But even at the macro-level, national policy should be bifurcated into one set of policies aimed more at concerns for population growth for some areas, and another set of policies aimed at `post ICPD' concerns for other areas."

This "chapter focuses on how population policies in [Sub-Saharan Africa] are, or could be, linked to migration, internal and especially international, through the intermediary of the population growth-labour force-employment-migration continuum. He argues that the region's rapidly growing population and labour force constrain economic development and are a likely cause of increasing emigration pressure, intensifying migratory flows directed to neighbouring countries and outwards to some countries of the North.... [The author] stresses the need for an appropriate development package for Africa that would provide ample opportunity for migration to be factored into processes of change. Since governments in the region regard migration as a crucial component of the development process, population policies have to explicitly respond to this expressed need and incorporate migration dynamics (both internal and international) into policy goals, objectives, strategies and progammes."

pp. New York, New York. In Eng.
"Focusing primarily on the United States-Mexico border, I examine one of the most prominent and politically sensitive border policing tasks: controlling illegal immigration. The rapidly expanding U.S. policing campaign on the southwest border contrasts sharply with the rhetoric and practice of U.S.-Mexican economic integration. The trend, it seems, is toward increasingly restrictive controls over unauthorized immigrant labor flows in the context of a general loosening of controls over cross-border economic activity. Even as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) promotes a de-territorialization of the economy, U.S. border control initiatives reinforce state claims to territorial authority. Thus, the apparent paradox of U.S.-Mexico integration is that a barricaded border and a borderless economy are being created simultaneously."

"Beginning in July 1999, major changes to the way skilled migrants are selected [in Australia] will be introduced. The new criteria will better target the skills needed by Australian employers. However, because overseas students trained in Australia are to be given the highest selection priority and because universities are rapidly expanding places for such students, there is a risk that opportunities for local aspirants in some professional areas will diminish."

"This paper investigates the [U.S.] Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) interior and border enforcement effort allocation choice following the enactment of IRCA [Immigration Reform and Control Act] in 1986. The INS increasingly allocated a disproportionate amount of resources along the border as a result of the new law. It is contended that this behavior is consistent with that of a public agency intent on maximizing its budget and not in accord with minimizing the undocumented population in the United States. The theory developed here is then used to evaluate proposals that could potentially reconcile the INS's objectives with those of the policy makers and the public."

The authors examine the impact on immigration of two pieces of U.S. federal legislation signed into law in 1996, the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act and the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act. "We suggest that the combined effects of the 1996 immigration and welfare reforms will produce unintended, and possibly undesirable, consequences.... We will argue that the 1996 reform measures, instead of preserving legal immigration and discouraging illegal immigration, are more likely to reduce legal immigration and expand incentives for illegal immigration."

"In this paper, we examine the impact of government enforcement of the U.S.-Mexican border on wages in the border regions of the United States and Mexico.... We examine labor markets in southern California, southwestern Texas, and Mexican cities on the U.S.-Mexico border. For each region, we have high-frequency time-series data on wages and on the number of person hours that the U.S. Border Patrol spends policing border areas. For a range of empirical specifications and definitions of regional labor markets, we find little impact of border enforcement on wages in U.S. border cities and a moderate negative impact of border enforcement on wages in Mexican border cities. These findings are consistent with two hypotheses: (1) border enforcement has a minimal impact on illegal immigration, or (2) immigration from Mexico has a minimal impact on wages in U.S. border cities."

pp. Paris, France. In Fre. with sum. in Eng.
"A public debate on migration policies was initiated in France by the great slump of the 1930s. Owing to the precarious situation of the foreigners, [who were] either economic migrants threatened [by repatriation] by the Laval-Flandin decrees or political refugees forbidden to work, the associations and left political parties joined in a committee: the `Centre de liaison des comités pour le statut des immigrés'. It raised great expectations as the Front Populaire had just been elected. Throughout the history of this union and of the repetitive failures of the various plans drawn for the Statute of Immigrants, the article sets forth the contradictions of the French left confronted with the question of immigration, the helplessness of the Front Populaire faced with political innovation in the matter and at last the obstacles set up by the traditional State controlled practices, those of a pragmatic policy of adjustment issued by the concerned ministries (Home and Foreign office)."

"While [French labor unions] continue to favor some restrictionist measures, they have modified their positions with respect to a number of aspects of French immigration policy and have opposed some restrictionist measures considered or adopted by various French governments in the 1980s and 1990s. This study seeks to understand this multidimensional approach of unions and to account for the variation in preferences of unions at those times when unemployment hit in the interwar period and in recent years. The study asks to what extent the explanation is enhanced by considering changing union assumptions on the ability of the state to control effectively migration due to economic internationalization."

"International borders are open to some movements and forbid others. These roles appear to be opposites, with intensified cross-border transactions accompanied by heightened interdiction of unauthorized immigrants and narcotics. This is an outcome of the contradictory political interests and ideas which promote and oppose globalization. These political processes not only shape general policies, but are expressed in the specific tasks and technologies applied by border control agencies. They are revealed through detailed ethnographic fieldwork on U.S. agencies on the Mexican border, including the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), its Border Patrol and Inspection branches, the U.S. Customs and the military."

Vol. 27, No. 3, 1997. 188-99 pp. Pretoria, South Africa. In Eng.
"The purpose of this article is twofold. Its first aim is to provoke a debate on an apparent tension between two of the guiding norms of the new order [in South Africa]--democracy and human rights. This tension results from a discrepancy between the levels at which the two concepts operate, and this will be elaborated on in due course. This tension can be observed in a number of foreign and domestic policy contexts.... The second purpose is thus to explore this tension within the context of a specific policy issue: transnational migration. Migration is an issue which--perhaps more than any other--is situated within that precarious nexus between domestic and foreign policy. For this reason trends in regional and international migration hold important implications for the choice of appropriate migration strategies, and for the impact of these within the domestic context of democratic `nation building' and the broader context of Southern African `regional development'."

"This article examines the limits to harmonization at the level of the European Union through a case study of policy towards people who fled the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the early 1990s. Specific attention is paid to the development of the policy of granting `temporary protection' instead of full refugee status to Bosnian asylum-seekers, which stretched across all fifteen member states. It is argued that `temporary protection' emerged as a set of specific responses to the outbreak of war in the former Yugoslavia, involving compromises between states' desires to restrict asylum on the one hand, but meet demand from public opinion and international organizations to offer protection to refugees on the other."

"This note reviews recent theoretical and empirical work on the determinants and efficacy of state immigration policies to draw conclusions about the future direction of policy regimes throughout the globe and their likely effects. An age of increasingly restrictive immigration policies is emerging, but it is still unclear how effective these policies will be in controlling the volume and composition of international migration. States can be located along a continuum of efficacy with respect to the imposition of restrictive policies. Unfortunately virtually all research done to date has focused on the effectiveness of restrictive policies in major immigrant-receiving developed countries."

Press: Ithaca, New York/London, England. In Eng.
This study examines why some countries welcome immigrants and some do not, and why immigration policies change over time. The focus is on the wealthiest countries, which are magnets for both economic migrants and refugees. Particular attention is given to the political implications of the fact that immigrants tend to concentrate in specific locations in their new country of residence. "Drawing on detailed evidence from Britain, France, and Australia, and more briefly from the United States, [the author] demonstrates that local support for and opposition to immigration is contingent upon economic conditions, as well as the numbers of foreigners entering the country and their access to the resources of the welfare state. Whether these local pressures are translated into policies of openness or closure at the national level depends on whether the local constituencies are critical to maintaining or gaining a national electoral majority."

England. In Eng.
"Migration policies in both the European Union and North America converge in substantial and formal ways. Such convergence can be explained by neoliberal restructuring that affects strategies and the geography of production, as well as state forms. But neoliberal transformation does not homogenise migration policies completely. Both regions exhibit significant differences that can be explained by the ways in which space is occupied by social forces. An examination of social forces in the regions allows us to account for the specificities of the two regions in terms of migration policies."

This is an analysis of the content of the Regional Conference on Migration (RCM), which aims to encourage the coordination of migration policies in Central and North America. The author makes the case that this initiative is designed not so much to control the flow of migrants between countries, but "as a mechanism through which specific patterns of social and spatial relations are being locked into the region. The coordination of migration policies in the RCM constitutes an effort to manage the mobility of capital and labour in an orderly manner. In addition, the coordinating effort serves two other purposes: to attribute specific responsibilities to states, and to depoliticize the issue of migration. Such developments fit neatly with the neoliberal project of integration, with the imposition of particular state-society relations onto the various countries involved."

The author argues that the contrast often made between Germany and the United States on the subject of immigration is misleading. In the author's view, claims that Germany, unlike the United States, is not a country of immigrants, does not desire to become one, and possesses no immigration policy are oversimplifications, if not downright false. He concludes that as regards migration policy in practice, the two countries have far more in common than is generally assumed.

"The process of decision making [in immigration policy] at the level of a given state is driven by two quite distinct types of considerations, each of which relates to a distinct sphere of social interactions. In the perspective of capitalist dynamics, immigrants of any kind--including refugees--are considered primarily as workers.... However, all types of immigrants--including even temporary workers--also constitute a political and cultural presence." The need for policies to reconcile these dimensions is emphasized.
