IMMIGRATION AND INTEGRATION POLICY

Funder: German Marshall Fund of the United States

Grants provided funding for transatlantic exchange of information and perspectives on immigration and integration policies. The project provided a venue for this intensive exchange of information about policy and program alternatives proposed and/or implemented by the post-industrial countries and it identifies areas in which cooperative transatlantic policy development and implementation may help address issues defying more traditional unilateral approaches. Meetings have been held on high skilled migration policies, temporary protection and asylum, visa and border controls, human smuggling and trafficking, and citizenship. ISIM has since launched a series entitled “Transatlantic Perspectives on Migration,” to provide policy findings and recommendations on issues affecting countries in North America and Europe.
