Public-Private Partnerships As Alternatives to Traditional Public Administration: Transnational Healthcare Access for Migrants
*Names in bold indicate Presenter
The goal of this work is to present the diverse ways in which migrant networks engage with their environment and the challenges of collaboration across sectors, jurisdictions, and national territories. Special emphasis is given to analyzing policies and regulations governing the financial and technical support provided to U.S. based voluntary organizations, along with practical considerations on implementation. The methodology involves document analysis along with original data obtained from interviews with government officials and community leaders in charge of voluntary organizations. Alternatively, the paper will also present a discussion on how these organizations promote integration/adaptation of Mexican immigrants to the United States. This work should provide useful information to conduct further research on this type of organization, as well as to expand the inquiry to other ethnic/immigrant groups.
