Four inter-related themes have been the focus for much of Jeff’s research on immigration, and on relations among diverse ethnic, racial, cultural and religious groups arising from immigration. These themes are:
- Diversity and social inclusion
- Focus on employment: discrimination, skill under-utilization, and inequality
- Cross-national comparisons, and
- Policies for immigration and immigrant integration
The main research issues within each of these themes, and related publications, including some key findings from specific publications, are on pages for each of these themes. The studies include a focus on many specific minority groups, including those of European origins, Asian, African and Latin American origins often considered racial or racialized minorities in Canada, and also on religious minorities, on experiences of minorities according to time in Canada and across generations, and experiences of successive cohorts of immigrants arriving during different periods of time.
