Immigration Law, International Education, and the International Competition for Knowledge Workers

Lecture Description

America’s economic competitiveness draws upon the tremendous appeal of the United States as a place to study, work, and live. These conditions have emerged since World War II, in parallel with the great diversification of U.S. society and culture. This lecture explores the historical intersections between the growth of international education programs, scientific and technological innovation, and the adaption of immigration laws to facilitate these transformations.
