Katharine Donato

Professor and Director, Institute for the Study of International Migration


Katharine Donato examines research and policy questions related to global and U.S. migration and its economic and social impacts for people in urban and rural contexts. Her bools explore gender and international migration and the global governance of refugees and migrants. In the U.S., she has studied the legal visa system and immigrant parent involvement in schools in New York, Chicago, and Nashville. Her work spans Mexico to Bangladesh, where she studies how environmental conditions affect out-migration from communities in the southwestern region.
