Overview

This issue focuses on the contribution of psychological theory and research to facilitating successful immigration and integration. Coverage includes both sides of the equation-the attitudes and values of members of the host society as well as the motivations and experiences of immigrants themselves-and includes contributions from investigators on four continents.

  • The work presented in this issue covers four continents; countries include Australia, Canada, Chile, France, Germany, the Netherland, the United Kingdom and the United States; this geographical breadth is unusual in a single volume and should increase its readership base
  • Methods include experiments, questionnaires and surveys, interviews, longitudinal analyses, and meta-analytic techniques
  • Includes the perspectives of both immigrants and members of the host countries, as well as articles that look at the interchange between these two perspectives
  • Explicit consideration of policy is part of the coverage, represented in particular by the final article written by a Canadian immigration policy specialist
  • For all of those in the field of social psychology who personally knew or professional respected Kenneth Dion, this issue is dedicated to him and to the many contributions that he made to social psychology in general and to the study of immigration in particular
