A big shout out to Social Sciences Forum for hosting Professor Hirokazu Yoshikawa from New York University!
Here's a description of the lecture:
Unauthorized and forced migration create social exclusion for millions of migrants worldwide. This exclusion can threaten child and youth development in multiple ways. In this presentation, research-based program and policy responses will be presented that: a) protect youth in mixed-status families in the United States in the face of the current immigration policy climate; and b) provide quality early childhood development programming for Syrian refugee families in the Middle East (a partnership between Sesame Workshop and the International Rescue Committee, the first awardee of the MacArthur Foundation 100&Change initiative). Implications for developmental science and research-practice partnerships will be discussed.
