His new book ``A Good Provider is One Who Leaves’’ provides an intimate look at their experiences and a wide-angled analysis of migration’s effects on sending and receiving countries. DeParle and a panel of researchers including Moderator Carolyn Heinrich (Vanderbilt University), Hamutal Bernstein (Urban Institute) and Neeraj Kaushal (Columbia University) will discuss the consequences of migration for families and society and the role of research and journalism in shaping policy discussions.
