"Undocumented Migration for Sex Work"
Saranda, Albania, 11-12 August 1998

The two day workshop is intended to examine local conditions relating to
undocumented migration of women and to then develop a non-prejudicial
client-driven project to be implemented by a consortium of the
participating agencies. The workshops will also seek to develop a funding
proposal for the supply of intervention and other services for women
travelling from Southern Albania to Greece and Italy for sex work, and for
women returning from migrant sex work. There will be particular
consideration of issues relating to trafficking and forced labour.

The project to be designed, is intended to include components that will
also supply services to women and girl-children in Devoll county which is a
principle point of departure in South-East Albania for undocumented migrant
women travelling to Greece for sex work.

We would like to invite any interested agency to attend. Enquiries should
be addressed in the first instance to the Tanya Foundation at Tanya@compuserve.com

Subject: news: German SPD gets tough on foreigner crime

Focus: German SPD gets tough on foreigner crime

BONN, July 27 (Reuters) - Germany's centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) on
Monday countered election pledges by Chancellor Helmut Kohl to get tough on
foreign criminals by unveiling their own proposals to fight immigrant crime.

Trailing the SPD in polls ahead of the September election, Kohl's
conservative alliance has made stricter controls on foreigners one of the
core themes of its campaign, amid signs of waning tolerance towards
immigrants among some Germans.

The SPD said that if elected it would give police the means to step up
action in areas of crime which they said were "dominated" by immigrant
groups in Germany, such as drug trafficking and prostitution.

Existing laws allowing fast-track deportations for illegal immigrants who
commit crime in Germany should be applied more strenuously, the party added.

"We have to make sure that deportations do actually take place when
necessary," Gerhard Glogowski, SPD Interior Minister for the northern state
of Lower Saxony told a news conference.

Politicians from other parties attacked the move as a vote-chasing
exercise, with some saying it meant anti-foreigner attitudes had captured
the centre-ground of German politics.

"If a coalition of CDU and SPD came about now, it would be a dark day for
liberalism within Germany," said Max Stadler, a deputy for the liberal Free
Democrats (FDP), Kohl's current junior coalition partners.

The ecologist Greens, whom the Social Democrats would likely need to call
on to avoid forming a so-called "grand coalition" with the CDU after the
election, accused the SPD of having succumbed to saloon bar politics.

The SPD rejected the criticism, pointing to the social measures to address
the causes of crime contained within its position paper.

Aside from pledging immediate expulsions of foreign criminals, Kohl's
alliance of Christian Democrats and the Bavarian Christian Social Union
have come forth with a string of demands to place controls on foreigners in
recent weeks.

Proposals floated include a measure requiring foreigners living in Germany
to learn German or face deportation, and that new immigrants should be
barred from living in areas which already have high concentrations of
non-Germans.

Even Kohl, normally an advocate of tolerance on immigrant issues, has
included the theme in recent election speeches.

While saying deportations were necessary for serious crimes, the SPD sought
to undermine the CDU/CSU campaign by arguing that overall crime rates among
non-Germans were in fact lower than in the comparable part of the German
population.

Many of the foreigners living in German are "guestworkers" from Turkey,
Greece and Italy who have lived in the country for generations without
being able to meet the strict criteria for German citizenship.

Voter surveys show Germans taking a critical view towards foreigners, with
high unemployment and cuts in social spending exacerbating the trend,
particularly in the formerly communist east and the southern state of Bavaria.

The anti-immigrant German People's Union (DVU) scored the best result for a
far-right German party since World War Two this April when it collected 13
percent of the vote in a state election in the eastern region of
Saxony-Anhalt.

The CDU and CSU are due on Tuesday to unveil the measures that will form
their joint manifesto pledges on crime-fighting and controlling immigration.
