A seminar with Justin Gest, Assistant Professor of Public Policy, George Mason University Schar School of Policy and Government, on his forthcoming book Crossroads: Comparative Immigration Regimes in Times of Demographic Change.

Examining 31 countries’ immigration demographic outcomes, this book derives a taxonomy of immigration regimes and develops explanations for what drives the variation in outcomes across borders. Its analysis finds that the world’s most prominent migration regimes appear far more influenced by the policies of the Gulf states than those of the settler states of yesteryear. A "Market Model" is emerging.
