About the Immigration Working Group

The MPRC-Immigration Working Group welcomes you as we seek to facilitate collaborative and interdisciplinary immigration-related research through discussion, sharing resources, and encouraging involvement.  Members of the MPRC-IWG are meeting next Wednesday, September 16, from 2 pm to 3 pm in 1101, the first floor conference room of Morrill Hall.  We have tentative dates for other meetings (October 7 and October 28).  Please join or post your contributions in addressing “What’s next for the MPRC-Immigration Working Group?” 

First is a welcoming round of brief introductions on migration-focused interests and activities.  This meeting continues the MPRC-IWG’s substantive focus on data sources and methods for studying immigration and foreign-born populations.  Your input is useful for targeting those data sources and methods for which you would like to have more discussion and concentration through seminars.  For next Wednesday’s agenda, the topic is “Census Surveys for Studying U.S. Immigration and the U.S. Foreign-born Population:  Resources, Potential, and Pointers,” a discussion organized by Karen Woodrow-Lafield.
