CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS — The Nieman Foundation at Harvard University will organize a workshop for approximately 25 journalists who cover the economy, the courts, and immigration. It will convene leading economists, policymakers, and stakeholders to explain how immigration affects the economy on the local and national level. The workshop will also provide participants with hands-on training on how to work with large immigration data sets. Selected participants will represent the broad diversity of U.S. media. Recognizing the rapidly changing political dynamics of the national immigration debates, the content of the proposed sessions will respond to current events.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Harvard University Nieman Foundation $63,000 between 2003 and 2014.
