IMMIGRATION AND NEW SETTLEMENT AREAS

Funder: Private Foundation

This project identified and mapped new areas of immigrant settlement in the United States, examined the impact of these new settlement patterns on immigrants and the receiving communities, including barriers to full social and economic integration, and identifies innovative approaches for addressing integration and impact problems. The resulting product was an edited volume on new settlement areas entitled Beyond the Gateway: Immigrants in a Changing America and workshops for community leaders to introduce them to the best practices.
