Welcome to the ERI Blog

ByERI Blog co-editors


Thanks for visiting the Equity Research Institute website and blog. As of July 2020, the USC Program for Environmental and Regional Equity (PERE) and the Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration (CSII) have merged to form the Equity Research Institute at USC Dornsife.

What happened to CSII’s Immigrant Integration Wire blog?  From 2009 to 2019, USC CSII built a strong footprint providing key data estimates, spotlighting researchers and narratives, and convening key conversations. While the title of CSII is going away, the work will not. ERI remains just as committed to our community partners, the field of immigrant integration research, and those immigrants making the US their home.

The ERI blog aims to provoke thought, inspire action, and present relevant research and community perspectives that add value to the public discourse for a more powerful, well-resourced, intersectional, and intersectoral movement for equity. 

ERI’s blog will continue to cover timely topics and narratives in immigrant integration, as well as articles across ERI’s areas of work, including: economic inclusion, climate equity, racial justice, social movements, and governing power.

If you would like to submit an article, essay, or pitch your idea for ERI’s blog, please see our blog submission guide for information and detailed instructions.
