Project Title

AN EXAMINATION OF POPULATION GEOGRAPHY AND MIGRATION TRENDS: THREE COUNTRIES WITH THE HIGHEST MIGRATION, AN UNDERSTANDING OF THEIR MIGRATION MODELS

Academic department under which the project should be listed

RCHSS - Geography & Anthropology

Faculty Sponsor Name

Dr Paul McDaniel

Abstract (300 words maximum)

This project explores contemporary migration trends in three countries with the highest migration to date -reviewing the migration process holistically. As global citizens, what drives a population to migrate? An amalgamation of research perspectives will break down the contributing factors focusing on what drives migration to these locations. Aside from reviewing migration patterns, what public policies are in place to assist migrants in gaining citizenship? A review of policies and laws that drive or limit the immigration process and understanding the employment prospects when moving to these countries will shed light on this question. What percentage of migrants return to their home country? As we discuss employment, we will analyze unemployment as a global issue; even as citizens of these countries, are there specific jobs that migrants fill? As migrants, what are the steps these countries put in place to encourage citizenship? Do governments foster relationships with these new citizens in these countries? What is the success rate for migrants in each of these countries independently? What medical options are available for immigrants? Is there a difference between medical care for citizens and non-citizens? This research will yield an applied understanding of broader trends helpful to leaders and policymakers.
