Annual Conference

Overview

(Im)Migrant Well-Being: A Nexus for Research & Policy - Smiling Black man standing in front of other people
Co-hosted by:
IWRC GWCHLI

This conference offers a public forum that brings together academic experts doing research on contemporary issues related to im/migrant well-being. Presentations will discuss research related to various dimensions of well-being with implications for how policies and programs at the local, state, and federal levels can affect im/migrants and their communities. The conference is organized around four panels in which the researchers will focus on how border policies, state surveillance, and programs and policies that aim to incorporate im/migrants affect different aspects of im/migrant well-being.
