The Americas

The America’s have experienced a profound political transformation during recent years with the reconciliation of former Cold War foes and increasing calls for regional economic integration. These events have major implications for migration in the region. COMPAS’ work has ranged from investigating the role of schools in reproducing elites in socialist Cuba to exploring the generational divide between old and new Cuban diaspora members.

The America’s also host the US-Mexico corridor, one of the most important migration and remittances corridors in the world.  COMPAS’ work has also investigated the consequences of remittances for the Mexican economy.
