Mexican Migration Project
The Mexican Migration Project (MMP) was created in 1982 by an interdisciplinary team of researchers to further understanding of the complex process of Mexican migration to the United States. The project is a binational research effort co-directed by Jorge Durand, professor of Social Anthropology at the University of Guadalajara (Mexico), and Douglas S. Massey, professor of Sociology and Public Affairs at Princeton University (US).
Since its inception, the MMP's main focus has been to gather social as well as economic information on Mexican-US migration
Note from Della: The MMP does two fieldwork trips during the year, one in January within Mexico and one over the summer in the US. During the semester they work on compiling, organizing and interpreting data. Students may have the option to accompany the MMP on their fieldwork excursion in January. If students would like to have direct experience working with migrants they are encouraged to split this internship with FM4.
