Conference: "Immigration and Public Opinion in the Western Democracies"
Fri, February 27, 2009 • 9:45 AM • BAT 5.108
Immigration is one of the key policy issues of our time. Millions of people are on the move globally, and the United States is in the midst of a fourth “Great Wave” of migration. However, the scholarly study of public opinion is not always adequate to the challenge of understanding this complex issue. This conference brings together scholars from North America, Australia, and Europe to better understand public views about immigration and government policymaking.
