Evaluating satisfaction with the quality of services is a central concern of social and educational programs, whose mission is to adhere as closely as possible to the needs of the population. Based on methodological and investigator triangulation methods, our aims were to analyze the level of satisfaction with the Welcome and Integration Contract of Luxembourg (Contract d’accueil et d’integation CAI) and its respective activities (citizenship courses, language courses and an orientation day). First, 233 out of 1084 Non-EU immigrant beneficiaries responded to a self-administrated questionnaire. Second, 11 semi-structured focus groups with 50 volunteers were conducted around four themes: Quality of activities, organization, availability of support personnel and utility of the information received. More than 72% of the participants were very satisfied with the quality, organisation and availability of personnel, in regard to the information session and the civic courses. Divergences exist because various needs were recognized. Potential activities to reduce the quality gap were proposed, for instance the creation of an interactive online platform where the beneficiaries could regularly get information and, exchange experiences and/or help each other whenever possible. The dynamism and interactivity in the focus groups revealed that the users would like to actively contribute to improving the process. Indeed, the needs and requirements of each immigrant group cannot be totally covered by these activities as they stand. Involving users in the strategy and action plans would help create more accurate solutions. [less ▲]

Cultural diversity due to immigration has become a key topic in many societies today. The question of how the native population experiences these developments is of prime importance for intercultural relations and sets the base for acculturation of immigrants. Drawing on attachment and multiculturalism research, we supposed here that general and specific feelings of security might be related to more positive attitudes toward cultural diversity, whereas feelings of threat might be related to less openness. More precisely, the present study investigated how natives’ general attachment (secure or fearful) as well as their specific feelings of (cultural or economic) security might be related to their expectations about acculturation of immigrants in the multicultural context of Luxembourg. The sample included N = 134 Luxembourg nationals with an average age of M = 45.02 (SD = 17.41) who filled out an online questionnaire. Results revealed that self-reported fearful general attachment was positively related to more unwelcoming acculturation orientations. Relations between general attachment and acculturation orientations were mediated by feelings of cultural security, which had strong effects on host nationals’ (un)welcoming acculturation orientations over and above general attachment. Findings suggest that (un)welcoming orientations toward immigrants, entailing openness for cultural contact and exchange, are related to feelings of cultural and economic security which are partly biased by a general secure or fearful attachment. Feelings of security seem thus to provide a secure base for tolerance and openness to cultural diversity which are needed in order to deal successfully with the challenges of today’s multicultural societies.

Joining copper and aluminum sheets is difficult because of brittle intermetallic phases (IMP) formed in the joint, which results in reduced performance. The traditional approach to overcome this issue is to irradiate the laser beam from Aluminum (Al) to control the weld depth and mixing of Cu in Al. The laser welding approach from the copper side (Cu on top) to Al is very sparse in the literature. In this paper, the welding approach from copper (top sheet) to aluminum is studied with green laser (515 nm) due to improved absorption at this wavelength. The objective of irradiating the laser beam from the copper side (Cu on top) is to exploit the higher solubility of Al in Cu (about 18%), which is significantly higher than Cu in Al. Therefore more Cu and Al can be melted and mixed in the joint for copper sheet placed on the top. From the tensile shear test, a strong joint is obtained with a fracture on the heat-affected zone (HAZ) of Al. Detailed microstructure and composition of Al and Cu in the joint is performed by Energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) to investigate the composition in the joint. The EDS analysis indicates that a large amount of beneficial Cu solid solution and Al-rich phases is formed in the joint. The detrimental phases are intermixed in between the ductile phase composition i.e Al-rich and Cu solid solution. Therefore the effect of detrimental intermetallic phases is mitigated by intermixing with large ductile phases. With this paper, the fusion welding approach for joining Cu and Al system with a significant level of Cu and Al melting is shown. [less ▲]

Urban green areas cover more than 6% of urban land in Europe. This paper quan-tifies the impact of urban green areas on city structures for more than 300 Europeancities. It discusses the economic effects of the local amenity produced by green urbanareas using an urban economics model with various set of preferences. It estimatesthose models using data on detailed residential land uses, green urban areas and popu-lation density. It finally assesses the economic effects of reducing urban green areas incounterfactual exercises where cities are closed and open to migration and green urbanland is converted to residential plots or not. By this strategy, the economic assess-ment accounts for the general equilibrium effects through endogenous land prices andresidential space and location choices. It shows that the gross benefits of urban greenareas are substantial. A uniform removal of half of the urban green areas is equivalentto 6-9% reduction of household annual income. However, the conversion of those areasto residential plots brings a net gain of approximately 4% [less ▲]

This paper quantifies the effect of global migration on the welfare of non-migrant OECD citizens. We develop an integrated, multi-country model that accounts for the interactions between the labor market, fiscal, and market size effects of migration, as well as for trade relations between countries. The model is calibrated to match the economic and demographic characteristics of the 34 OECD countries and the rest of the world, as well as trade flows between them in the year 2010. We show that recent migration flows have been beneficial for 69% of the non-migrant OECD population, and for 83% of non-migrant citizens of the 22 richest OECD countries. Winners are mainly residing in traditional immigration countries; their gains are substantial and are essentially due to the entry of immigrants from non-OECD countries. Although labor market and fiscal effects are non-negligible in some countries, the greatest source of gain comes from the market size effect, i.e. the change in the variety of goods available to consumers.
