Immigration and Trans-Border Organizations

Researchers in PPPM have been studying a number of topics related to immigration and expatriates and how they relate to different types of nonprofit, for-profit, and social enterprise organizations. More specifically, we are examining the role of international nongovernmental organizations (INGOs) and institutional logics, specialized capacity building for immigrant groups, integration of marginalized immigrants at the community level, comparing access to resources for local-led and western expat-led social enterprises in emerging market countries, and the role of immigrants in stimulating entrepreneurship in high-income economies.
