Welcome to the Center for Migration and Development
As the new Director of the Center for Migration and Development (CMD), I welcome you to our website.
Founded in 1998 and directed until now by Professor Alejandro Portes, the CMD has become a source for research, teaching and the public dissemination of knowledge regarding migration and development. The CMD will continue to sponsor a wide array of research, travel and conference programs aimed at linking scholars with interests in migration and development. Under the new directorship, the CMD plans to continue in this tradition but expand it with the addition of research on race and ethnicity, especially as it relates to migration and development.
In particular, the CMD will continue with its research on the relationship between immigrant and other communities in the developed world and the growth and development of the sending nations and it will now include the Project on Ethnicity and Race in Latin America. This year we will feature, at Princeton, a series of speakers on immigration, development and race and ethnicity that are open to the public and we plan to sponsor major conferences each year.
The Center's data archive and working papers series provides readily available resources based on recent research conducted at Princeton.
We invite you to browse through the announcements and online resources featured in this site and to let us know your impressions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
