The 2nd edition of the Library Research Data Guide was issued on 20 May. The Guide – which offers advice to scholars who use and generate research data – contains new information about data management requirements in the EU Horizon 2020 research funding programme (2014-2020). Feedback from the recent EUI research data survey is also incorporated. The Guide gives an overview of data discovery, access and terms of use, technical support, data management and how to describe and preserve datasets.

The Guide focuses on digital research data outputs – primarily numerical statistical data. Most of the guidelines can also be applied to other forms of research data: qualitative, textual, visual and audio – the generation of which is anticipated to increase over time. There is a growing open data trend among international organisations, researchers and government agencies to share data outputs, codebooks and software. Sections 3 to 7 cover research data management and give guidelines on open data practices.

The Evolving Regulation of the Media in Europe as an Instrument for Freedom and Pluralism

The Evolving Regulation of the Media in Europe as an Instrument for Freedom and Pluralism (PDF)

European regulation of the media is influenced by the economic regulation of networks, contents, and e-commerce, to which it is very close. However, media regulation has one peculiar differentiating characteristic: it cannot concentrate only on market competition, as the rest of modern economic regulation does, but has to pursue other fundamental values. In particular, media pluralism and media freedom emerge as policy goals that are essential for democracy and human rights in Europe. In this paper, we discuss the EU’s search for a point of equilibrium in Member States’ resistance to the relinquishing of their power in the sector; we describe the current debate, and suggest some possible directions for development.

EU Cooperation Challenges in External Migration Policy

May 20, 2011 Comments off

EU Cooperation Challenges in External Migration Policy (PDF)
Source: Migration Policy Institute/European University Institute

International cooperation on migration is a major challenge for sovereign States in bilateral relations: the inherent contrasting interests between receiving and sending countries put obstacles in the way of bilateral satisfaction and require extra political involvement to overcome any differences. The same cooperation when developed by a supranational organization like the EU is even more challenging, as bilateral tensions are topped off with tensions between the national and supranational level.

The EU has developed its Global Approach to Migration as a possible way to establish comprehensive cooperation with non-EU partners from the East and the South on a whole range of migration issues, including the fight against irregular migration, legal migration, migration and development, and asylum policy. The approach also had a coordinating effect for internal EU policymaking. There have been, however, four main challenges hampering this policy domain: 1) the limited ability of the EU to define its migration policy with its 27 sovereign States; 2) tensions between the national and supranational level in the EU as regards international cooperation on migration; 3) the diverging interests and priorities of sending regions and/or partner countries; 4) the limited implementation capacities of the EU and its Member States, as well as of partner countries.

The prospects for cooperation depend on the ability of the EU to overcome these challenges. Focus should be on the vital areas of action, addressing the non-securitarian issues of migration policy and assuring its thematic diversity; strengthening the EU’s international standing; and introducing coherent monitoring of policy implementation.

Obstacles and Opportunities for Regional Cooperation: The US-Mexico Case

From e-mail:

In Obstacles and Opportunities for Regional Cooperation: The US-Mexico Case, MPI Senior Policy Analyst Marc Rosenblum analyzes the history of US-Mexico relations on migration dating from the 1890s to the current day and offers some lessons for the relationship going forward. The history suggests that cooperation, while difficult, is not impossible and can offer benefits for both countries.

The report traces the evolution of US-Mexico relations on migration: from an era of laissez faire policies to the Bracero Program, a more unilateral US policy approach, Mexico’s “policy of no policy” stance, and the current post-9/11 security focus.
