Between Revolution and Stasis: US Immigration and Refugee Policy in 1996

The paper examines the hostility of the domestic political climate in the US with regard to foreign assistance, although US policymakers were aware of the linkages between development and migration. As a result, the US was slow to adapt to the world’s interconnectivity. The authors predicted that the US would grow increasingly migration-conscious in policy making areas like defense and social policy.
