Abstract: 
The Conference on CSR in Europe - Latin America and the Caribbean: “The Best of Two Worlds” gathered a large number of business leaders, practitioners, government officials, NGOs, academics, and civil society representatives from both regions. The main goal of the conference was to strengthen the exchange of CSR experiences in the countries of Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean in order to explore what companies can learn from each other in the CSR field. Through case presentations the conference highlighted bi-regional experiences and approaches to CSR. Focus was on: 1) global versus local CSR strategies; 2) how to overcome cultural differences; 3) CSR alliances among different types of organisations in Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean; and 4) perspectives for further cooperation and exchange of experiences between the two regions

Abstract: 
This paper examines one important dimension of the European Union's (EU) 'regional' engagement with the Caribbean: its relations with the Overseas Countries and Territories (OCT), with a particular focus on the possibility of furthering the policy goals of greater regional integration and cooperation. It does so in three parts. The first sets out the basis for current EU policy to the OCT which has been under discussion between the EU, the OCT and the four EU member states most involved (Denmark, France, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom) since 2008. It reports EU proposals for change and the responses to them by the Caribbean OCTs. The second part examines EU policy toward promoting greater regional cooperation among the Caribbean OCTs and between them and some of the other Caribbean regional organizations. Three distinct frameworks for cooperation and integration are discussed: with independent states as established in the Caribbean Community, the Caribbean Forum and the Economic Partnership Agreement; with the French departments and collectivities; and with the Caribbean OCT. In each the position of the Caribbean OCT is situated. The final part briefly discusses the creation of a 'new' framework for regional cooperation specific for the Caribbean OCT which will most closely match their interests in the Caribbean.

South-North Migration of EU Citizens in Times of Crisis.

South-North Migration of EU Citizens in Times of Crisis

Abstract: 
This book looks at the migration of Southern European EU citizens (from Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece) who move to Northern European Member States (Belgium, France, Germany, United Kingdom) in response to the global economic crisis.
Its objective is twofold. First, it identifies the scale and nature of this new Southern European emigration and examines these migrants’ socio-economic integration in Northern European destination countries. This is achieved through an analysis of the most recent data on flows and profiles of this new labour force using sending-country and receiving-country databases. Second, it looks at the politics and policies of immigration, both from the perspective of the sending- and receiving-countries. Analysing the policies and debates about these new flows in the home and host countries’ this book shows how contentious the issue of intra-EU mobility has recently become in the context of the crisis when the right for EU citizens to move within the EU had previously not been questioned for decades.
Overall, the strength of this edited volume is that it compiles in a systematic way quantitative and qualitative analysis of these renewed Southern European migration flows and draws the lessons from this changing climate on EU migration.
