    Migration Policy Institute names its global top 10

    By admin | December 6, 2006

    The Migration Policy Institute’s “Migration Information Source” has named the “Top 10 Migration Issues of 2006”. The top issue was a shift in many government’s policies from multiculturalism to assimilation; next came the UN’s High-Level dialogue on International Migration and Development, the first time UN ever hosted a multilateral discussion on the topic.

    Coming in third was US immigration reform; the Source says, “Better luck next year”. It notes, “The United States has not come much closer to President Bush’s vision of immigration reform although events in 2006 may have changed the political climate in which immigration will be debated next year.”

    See the rest of the Top 10 at the Migration Information Source website.

    Earlier this year, the Source produced a special issue on The Second Generation – well worth a look. It examines the experience of second-generation adult immigrants in the US.
