Immigrant/Refugee Reception and Panel Discussion

February, 20 2008 2:00 to 3:30 pm Ferguson Building (Department of Socialogy) Room 100, UNCG

Over the course of the past two decades the Triad area has become home to a large Latino population as well as thousands of Africans and Southeast Asians.

This panel will discuss North Carolina's immigrant and refugee populations. They will address important questions about migration to the area:
- What are the mechanisms which drive immigration?
- Why has the Triad become an increasingly popular area for new migrants?
- What are the barriers that these groups have faced to become fully integrated into the local communities?
