New from IMR: Immigrant Experiences in North America, Western Europe and Australia

The fall 2016 edition of the International Migration Review (IMR) is now available online and in print through paid or institutional subscription. This edition includes a series of papers on immigrants in Western Europe, including a paper on the educational performance of immigrants in Western European countries and papers  on variables that influence anti-immigrant attitudes. Other articles explore immigrant experiences in North America and Australia, including participation in unions, educational expectations and attainment, health, and factors that help or hinder US undocumented youth in applying for temporary relief from deportation through Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The edition also includes eight new book reviews which, as always, are open access (freely available) for three years from the date of publication.
