GRITIM-UPF Policy Series aims at disseminating outcomes of studies contributing on the making of public policies. The objective is to contribute to the research/policy nexus with a series that can be both a common ground for researchers, policy makers, stakeholders and representatives of civil society committed to the management of immigration and diversity. It will appear at least once a year.
