The Immigration Initiative at Harvard (IIH) advances interdisciplinary scholarship, original research, and intellectual exchange on issues related to immigrant origin children—the fastest growing child and youth population in our country (currently, comprising 26% of children and 33% of all young adults).

The Immigration Initiative at Harvard serves as a place of convening for scholars, students, policy makers, community leaders, and practitioners working on topics related to understanding and serving this population. We are a clearinghouse for the translation of evidence-based research to promising practices.
