Acknowledgments
This research was commissioned by the
Transatlantic Council on Migration, an initiative of
the Migration Policy Institute (MPI), for its seventh
plenary meeting, held November 2011 in Berlin. The
meeting’s theme was “National Identity, Immigration,
and Social Cohesion: (Re)building Community in an
Ever-Globalizing World” and this paper was one of
the reports that informed the Council’s discussions.
The Council, an MPI initiative undertaken in cooperation with its policy partner the Bertelsmann Stiftung, is a unique deliberative body that examines
vital policy issues and informs migration policymaking processes in North America and Europe. The Council’s work is generously supported by the
following foundations and governments: Carnegie
Corporation of New York, Open Society Foundations, Bertelsmann Stiftung, the Barrow Cadbury Trust (UK Policy Partner), the Luso-American
Development Foundation, the Calouste Gulbenkian
Foundation, and the governments of Germany, the
Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden.
