CCIS seeks to illuminate the U.S. immigration experience through systematic comparison with other countries of immigration, particularly in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. The Center promotes comparative research in the following areas: * The causes, dynamics, and consequences (economic, political, and sociocultural) of international migration (including low-skilled and high-skilled migrant workers and refugees) * The determinants and outcomes of laws and policies to regulate immigration and refugee flows * Transnational relationships (economic, political, cultural, ethnic) between immigrant sending and receiving countries * The impact of international migration on citizenship, national identity, and ethnic relations * Immigrant rights, advocacy, and social services; immigrant political mobilization and participation * The socioeconomic, political, and cultural interactions of immigrants and refugees with native-born residents of receiving countries and their long-term settlement and social integration
