Immigration and Integration: Current Research

  • Jens Hainmueller ,
  • Duncan Lawrence

In this video, Jens Hainmueller, Co-Director of the Immigration and Integration Policy Lab, and Duncan Lawrence, Executive Director of the Immigration and Integration Policy Lab, explain some of the challenges created by current immigration policies and the research the Policy Lab has undertaken to better understand and inform alternative solutions.

Partially funded by The Europe Center at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies at Stanford University, the Immigration and Integration Policy Lab uses statistical methods and experiments to study immigration and integration policy in Europe and the United States. The Lab’s goal is to create a more balanced understanding of immigration and integration in order to help inform and advance policy.

A free accompanying discussion guide will soon be available for this lecture and the related video, Immigration and Integration: Introduction, in which Hainmueller and Lawrence define immigrant integration, explain factors of migration, and discuss the characteristics of immigration in Europe versus the United States.
