Migration Stigma

April 23, 2024

The new book Migration Stigma: Understanding Prejudice, Discrimination, and Exclusion, co-edited by Maureen Eger, faculty affiliate of the Center for Right-Wing Studies, is now available open access from MIT Press. The book introduces the concept of “migration stigma” to conceptualize the experiences of immigrants, their descendants, and native-born residents in immigrant-receiving societies. The book includes a chapter by Seth Holmes, Co-Chair of the Berkeley Center for Social Medicine, on the lived experience of stigma among immigrant youth.
