It is the mission of the Center for Immigration Studies to examine, inform, and critique American immigration policy. In the pursuit of this goal, the Center seeks to provide the latest immigration news and research for all involved in the debate over this complex issue. In addition to its e-mail news services, reports and books, the Center disseminates an annual list of doctoral dissertations and theses inspecting some aspects of immigration in order to keep those involved abreast of the most recent developments in emerging scholarship. This compilation contains dissertations completed in 2007.

For ease of use, the list is organized into the following categories: Acculturation/Assimilation, Canada/Mexico, Economics/Labor, Education/Schools, Enforcement/Security, Health, History, Identity, International, Language, Migration Process, Policy/Politics/Political Science, Processes/Networks, Refugees/Asylum, Religion, and Women/Families. However, many of the items in this list could have easily fallen into two or three different categories. Those readers who are interested in a particular topic are encouraged to browse the entire list due to the list’s necessarily subjective organizational scheme.
