Michael Jones-Correa

Cornell University

Research Initiative:

Michael Jones-Correa, assistant professor in the department of government at Harvard University, will examine how the cities of Los Angeles, New York, Miami, and Washington, D.C., each responded to recent civil disturbances arising from tensions between African-Americans and recent immigrants. In the aftermath of unrest, a variety of new community initiatives arose from both the public and private sectors to address inequities and to attempt to build bridges between ethnic and racial groups. Jones-Correa explores the differences between these programs, their relative level of success, particularly under severe financial pressures, and their affect on the relationships between immigrants and other marginalized ethnic groups.
