Invitation to participate in a research project entitled “The Integration of Second Generation Racialized Minorities in the United States and Canada,” which is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (Canada) Postdoctoral Fellowship.

This study examines the educational, work and lived experiences of racialized minority immigrant descendants in North American societies, with a particular focus on the factors that affect their integration process. As part of the study, you will be asked to fill up an online survey questionnaire.
