Immigration-Related Dissertations, 2003

By Irie Turner July 2004

The Center for Immigration Studies seeks to be a resource for information pertaining to immigration, especially U.S. immigration. To that end, the Center publishes an annual list of immigration-related dissertations completed in the previous year. The following list includes a breadth of topics and should promote a more comprehensive understanding of immigration issues while providing scholars with a compendium of scholarly research in their area(s) of expertise.

For ease of use, the list is organized into the following categories: Policy/Politics, Immigration Processes, Economics, Assimilation/Ethnicity, Education, Health, Religion, and Refugees/Asylum. Because the grouping of these dissertations is necessarily subjective, it is advisable to scan the entire list.

Abstracts of these dissertations can be viewed free of charge through the end of this year through ProQuest Digital Dissertations on the University of Michigan's website, at http://wwwlib.umi.com/dissertations. ProQuest charges a fee for downloading each complete dissertation.
