Title: Anthony Richmond, “Immigration Policy and Research in Canada: Pure or Applied?” Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies 26.1 (2000): 109-125.
Author: Richmond, Anthony
Abstract: A review of Canadian immigration research, published between 1980 and 1998, suggests that research had only a limited impact on policies and programmes. Economists seemed to have more influence than psychologists, sociologists or demographers. Alternative models of the way research may enter the policy decision-making process are described. A 'systems' model recognises the competing influence of special interest groups and the influence of public opinion. Emphasis is placed on the need for academic researchers to make their conclusions known expeditiously, in order to create a more enlightened public.
