On May 21-22, 2019, Professor Donato participated in the National Academies Workshop entitled Forced Migration Research: From Theory to Practice in Promoting Migrant Well-Being. The workshop was designed to "bring fresh and innovative approaches in social demographic theory, methodology, data collection and analysis, and practice and applications to the forefront of the community of researchers and practitioners who are concerned with better understanding and assisting forced migrant populations." Workshop participants shared cutting-edge social demographic research and practice from around the globe. Together with Professor VanLandingham (from Tulane University), Professor Donato spoke in the last session of the workshop about lessons learned and future research. Support for this workshop was provided by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. After the workshop, the National Academies Press plans to publish a proceedings volume. For more information, click here.
