Eleven papers from the May 1995 workshop in Granada, Spain focus on the idea that the issues and problems of immigration in the United States and the European Union have many commonalities and that much can be learned from examining the experiences, successes, and failures of both regions. Topics include international migration and health in the European Union, the social service needs of Mexican Immigrants in the United States, immigrant and refugee populations in New York, North African immigrants in Belgium, psychopathology of immigrants and cross-cultural therapy, and potentially traumatic events among unaccompanied migrant children from Central America.
