B.A., Rutgers; M.A., Ph.D., University of Pennsylvania. Professor Martin is the Donald G. Herzberg Associate Professor of International Migration and serves as the Executive Director of the Institute for the Study of International Migration in the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University. The Institute provides balanced, multidisciplinary analysis of the complicated issues raised by immigration policy and law. A long-time expert on immigration and refugee policy, she came to Georgetown after having served as the Executive Director of the U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform, which made its final report to Congress in September 1997, issuing recommendations to reform immigration policy, institute immigrant policies to help newcomers and communities in which they settle, reinvigorate U.S. leadership in refugee policy, and restructure the federal agencies responsible for implementing immigration policy. Prior to joining the Commission's staff, Professor Martin was the Director of Research and Programs at the Refugee Policy Group, a Washington-based center for analysis of U.S. and international refugee policy and programs. She was Assistant Professor at the American Studies Department of Brandeis University and Lecturer for the History of American Civilization at the University of Pennsylvania. Professor Martin has authored A Nation of Immigrants, Managing Migration: The Promise of Cooperation, Refugee Women--Second Edition (Lexington Books), as well as numerous monographs and articles on immigration and refugee policy.
