Race, Ethnicity, and Immigration

The Russell Sage Foundation launched its program on Race, Ethnicity, and Immigration in the spring of 2015. This program seeks investigator-initiated research proposals on the social, economic, and political effects of the changing racial and ethnic composition of the U.S. population, including the transformation of communities and ideas about what it means to be American. We are especially interested in innovative research that examines the roles of race, ethnicity, nativity, and legal status in outcomes for immigrants, U.S.-born racial and ethnic minorities, and native-born whites.

Gendered Differences in the Causes and Consequences of Migration: Experimental Evidence from India and the United Arab Emirates

This pilot project designs and evaluates the impact of skills training and certification on recruitment of low-skilled labor migrants from a virtually untapped international migration corridor- North-Eastern India to the United Arab Emirate- focusing particularly on women. The researchers seek to understand whether the act of migrating and the capital that follows has the potential of altering migrants and their communities' welfare in terms of their economic behavior, policy preference, socio-political engagement, intra-household bargaining, and tolerance levels.

Doctoral Dissertation Research: Intergenerational Transmission of Status in New Immigrant Families

This project is a study of U.S.-born, citizen youth to better understand the intergenerational transfer of citizenship status. The project compares the experience of youth from undocumented and documented immigrant families. The legal-illegal dichotomy ingrained in U.S. immigration policies is conceptually limiting for understanding the diversity of citizenship experiences for the children of immigrants. A more nuanced analysis is now required to further uncover the generational effects of parental undocumented status on their U.S. born children with citizenship.

Special Initiative on Integrating Biology and Social Science Knowledge (BioSS)

Two recent intellectual developments have prompted RSF to launch a special research initiative that integrates knowledge from the biological and social sciences. First, there has been a paradigm shift in the life sciences, spurred by the realization that many biological processes, rather than being fixed, immutable mechanisms that consign people to particular life outcomes, are instead fluid, dynamic responses to features of the social and physical environments humans inhabit.
