Migration & Integration

Migration & Integration

The US has long been a country shaped by immigrants. Yet, European countries are also seeing a rapid growth in their immigrant populations. Both sides of the Atlantic face growing pressures to better manage migration flows, to improve communication about newcomers to their citizens, and to develop effective integration policies. How the US and Europe respond to these challenges is not only about those who seek to enter our borders, but also about how we choose to define our societies, futures, and shared interests. We foster a transatlantic dialogue that promotes responsible immigration policies, understands integration as a shared task for newcomers and receiving communities, and reaffirms the rich contributions of immigrants for cultural diversity, pluralism, innovation, and economic growth.
