University of Cambridge Research Project

Dear all,

My name is Ave Lauren and I am a researcher at the University of
Cambridge. I am currently working on a research project called 'The Rise
of New Migrant Identities and Landscapes in the Bay Area', which has set
out to explore the ways in which new highly-skilled migrants impact
global cities and become politically integrated into receiving
societies. The main goal is to shed light on the needs and expectations
of new migrants, which until now have been overlooked by both
policy-makers and academia. As many countries are re-evaluating their
immigration policies in relation to highly-skilled migrants, there is an
urgent need to address these issues and this project explores them in
relation to Chinese communities in the San Francisco Bay Area. The
project is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC),
which is one of the leading research agencies in the UK and Europe.

I am writing to ask if there is any chance I could meet and discuss
these issues with someone from the City Hall. I would like to talk about
the Chinese community (and other Asian communities) in your city and
also touch upon the expectations your city and constituents have for the
pending immigration reform policy. I am visiting the Bay Area this
Spring (10 March – 27 April) and I can meet at a time and place of your
choosing. Interviews are expected to last for 30 minutes, but depending
on the time available can be shortened. If preferred, we can also talk
over phone. Anonymity can be maintained throughout the study.

If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to ask and I look
forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,
Ave Lauren
