PERKINS, Douglas D.; PALMER, Neal A.  e  GARCIA-RAMIREZ, Manuel. Psychosocial studies of migration and community: introduction to the special issue. Psychosocial Intervention [online]. 2011, vol.20, n.3, pp.237-242. ISSN 2173-4712.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5093/in2011v20n3a1.

Introducing the special issue on psychosocial studies of migration and community, we briefly reflect on the global increase in, and issues related to, both international and domestic migration, particularly from rural areas of less developed countries, which has fueled rapid urbanization and intercultural tensions in both post-industrial and developing countries. Topics covered in the issue are summarized, including an Italian study of the emotional impact of discrimination against immigrant adolescents; acculturation, integration and adaptation of Muslim immigrant youth in New Zealand; perceptions of human trafficking in Moldova; Chinese migrant workers' social networks, life satisfaction and political participation; physician brain drain from sub-Saharan Africa; and a critical analysis of the oppressive and liberating impact of organizations on immigrants, multiculturalism, and social justice. The issue concludes with commentary articles by four leading international scholars of migration and community. The breadth of topics helps to address wide-ranging gaps in the literature, but more psychological and social research must connect ecologically across multiple levels and to cultural, political, economic, and environmental studies of migration and community.

Palavras-chave : acculturation; globalization; community; immigration; immigrants; international cultural conflicts; migrants; psychosocial factors.
