The Center for Immigration Studies’ mission is 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 that relate to immigration in order to keep those involved abreast of the most recent developments in emerging scholarship.

This compilation contains dissertations completed in 2010.

For ease of use, the list is organized into the following categories: Acculturation/Identity, Canada, Economics/Labor, Education, Health, History, International, Migration Process, Policy/Politics, Refugees/Asylum, Religion, and Women/Families. However, many of the items 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 necessarily subjective organizational scheme.
