Find an Expert – the new online search engine and database of experts working in the field of immigration – is now available on the P2P website.

We are currently inviting P2P co-investigators, collaborators, partner representatives, LIP and RIF representatives, policy and program officials working in the area of immigration, and affiliated graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to join the expert database. Experts can submit their information at this link.
