Request for Abstracts: Population and Public Policy Conference (2/8-2/9)

Posted: 9/18/2018 (Conference)

The Second Biennial Population and Public Policy Conference will take place Feb. 8-9, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Speakers will include Dr. Douglas Massey, author of Brokered Boundaries: Creating Immigrant Identity in Anti-Immigrant Times; and Timothy P. Olson, the U.S. Census Bureau’s associate director for field operations. This interdisciplinary gathering of researchers, practitioners, policy makers and students is an excellent platform for sharing recent innovations, trends, challenges and solutions to population and public policy issues.
