Migration and Religion

Migration Program Director Josh DeWind takes a tour of migrant communities in Soweto, South Africa, during a meeting of the Religious Lives of Migrant Minorities project.

Because the study of migration and the study of religion have developed separately, we know very little about their interrelationships. The SSRC Migration Program brings together scholars from both fields to explore how religion and settlement in new societies have affected the lives of migrants, both historically and in the present, both in the United States and in other parts of the world.
