The August 2018 Special Issue of the ILR Review is now online to view! This issue gathers cross-national perspectives of immigration legalization to provide a better understanding of immigration as a worldwide phenomenon. Below is an excerpt from the special issue introduction entitled “Introduction to a Special Issue on the Impact of Immigrant Legalization Initiatives: International Perspectives on Immigration and the World of Work,” from authors from Cornell University, Maria Lorena Cook, Shannon Gleeson, Kati L. Griffith, and Lawrence M. Kahn:

Together they underscore the importance of cross-national perspectives for understanding the range of legalization programs and their impact on immigrant workers, the workplace, and the labor market”
