MPI and the Asian Development Bank (ADB) on September 28 – 29 will host a forum in Bali, Indonesia to launch a joint initiative which aims to reduce barriers to the free flow of skilled labor amongst countries in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The initiative will carry out studies to better understand the barriers to freer movement of professionals within ASEAN and seek to develop strategies to overcome them.
Two reports released by the Migration Policy Institute and the Urban Institute trace the effects that parental deportation can have on children, finding significant and long-lasting harm can occur at emotional, economic, developmental, and academic levels.
The findings in a new Migration Policy Institute report suggest that the increased Mexican enforcement capacity is reshaping regional dynamics and perhaps ushering in changes to long-lasting trends in regional apprehensions.
WASHINGTON — Research on the children of immigrants shows that the majority of them perceive discrimination, and that they more easily read signs of personal than institutional discrimination. Instances of personal discrimination can have broad psychological, physical, academic and social consequences for immigrants’ children.
Guatemalans, Indians and Koreans among Top 5 Fastest-Growing Populations since 2000
WASHINGTON – While Mexicans still represent the majority of unauthorized immigrants in the United States, the fastest rates of growth since 2000 have occurred in unauthorized populations from Asia, Central America and Africa, the Migration Policy Institute (MPI) reported today.
WASHINGTON – The vast majority of unauthorized immigrants who received a temporary grant of relief from deportation as well as work authorization under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program have applied to renew their benefits as their initial two-year grant neared its end, the Migration Policy Institute (MPI) finds.
WASHINGTON — Using previously non-public refugee admissions data from the State Department, a new Migration Policy Institute (MPI) analysis finds that despite the fact that refugees to the United States come from increasingly diverse origins and linguistic backgrounds and that some arrive with low native-language literacy and education, most refugees successfully integrate into the U.S. labor market and society over time.
WASHINGTON – Turkey is currently host to the largest community of displaced Syrians in the region. Adding to the challenge, the rising refugee inflows have occurred even as Turkey was in the midst of overhauling its asylum and reception system to meet international, and particularly European Union, standards.
The country, which according to United Nations estimates had more than 1.7 million Syrian refugees as of March, has largely shouldered the burden on its own—spending $5 billion as of early 2015, with just 3 percent coming from international community contributions.
WASHINGTON – With one in four of the nation’s 23 million children under age 6 born to immigrant parents, the need to build a culturally and linguistically competent workforce in the early childhood education and care (ECEC) field is urgent.
First Report Examines Increasing Mismatch between Frameworks that Define the Existing Protection Regime and Contemporary Patterns of Displacement
BRUSSELS — The effective functioning of the European Union’s Common European Asylum System (CEAS) is under increased scrutiny, as the rising number of asylum seekers in Europe has thrown existing divergences in national asylum policies and practice into relief.
The Dublin system, once viewed as the cornerstone of the CEAS, has been vilified as a failure of solidarity and burden-sharing among EU Member States, which confront different realities and pressures in coping with rising humanitarian and irregular migration flows.
WASHINGTON – With aging populations and rising rates of chronic diseases, governments in North and Central America are giving new policy focus to ways to increase both the quantity of nurses and quality of nurse education. One promising, yet largely unexplored avenue for regional cooperation in this area is the harmonization of qualifications in nursing, according to a report released today by the Migration Policy Institute (MPI).
WASHINGTON — Immigration has contributed significantly to the growth and diversity of the Houston metropolitan area, which is the nation’s most diverse and rapidly expanding major U.S. metro area, according to a new Migration Policy Institute (MPI) report. The Latino and Asian shares of the area’s population have doubled over the past 20 years, and today no one racial or ethnic group forms a majority.
WASHINGTON — The Migration Policy Institute’s (MPI) online journal, the Migration Information Source, has published its annual compilation of some of the most frequently sought-after current and historical U.S. immigration statistics.
WASHINGTON — Immigrant adults in the United States lag their native-born peers in literacy, numeracy and problem-solving skills, with resulting effects on their income, employment, education and health, according to Migration Policy Institute (MPI) analysis of an innovative international survey that tests skills needed for full participation in today’s increasingly knowledge-based world.
WASHINGTON – Given the wide differences in college costs and state policies regarding tuition and financial aid for unauthorized students, higher education opportunities for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program are driven largely by their state of residence, a new Migration Policy Institute (MPI) report based on fieldwork in seven states finds.
