Immigrants and Refugees: Their Similarities, Differences, and Needs




In December 1976, the Director of the Intergovernmental Committee for European Migration (ICEM), Mr. John F. Thomas, addressed a Seminar of the American Immigration and Citizenship Conference in New York, where the author of this article, Dr William S. Bernard, Chairman of the Committee on lntegration of the American Immigration and Citizenship Conference and Emeritus Director of the Center for Migration Studies, Brooklyn College, City University of New York, was honoured for his eminent work and contributions on the world-wide problems of voluntary and forced migratory movements and especially the human aspectsinvolved.

The editors of International Migrarion hope that this eminent author will also in future con- tribute his valuable articles to this periodical.
