Rethinking WIC : an evaluation of the Women, Infants, and Children Program by Douglas J Besharov( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rethinking WIC is an analysis of the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children, WIC is a $5 billion per year program and serves about 7.3 million women and children. WIC provides vouchers to low-income families to purchase specific high-nutrition food packages to supplement diets, nutritional and health counseling, and referrals to health care and social service providers. WICs popularity stems, according to Douglas J. Besharov and Peter Germanis, from the widespread belief that research studies have proved that WIC "works" by improving the diets and health of recipients. In this volume, Besharov and Germanis analyze those studies and show that the extensive benefits cited by some analysts and policymakers have been exaggerated and relate primarily to research conducted on WIC's prenatal program, which involves only 11 percent of program participants. Even there, they assert that the evidence suggests that WIC's benefits are modest at best." "Part 1 of this volume presents Besharov and Germanis's analysis. Part 2 includes comments on Besharov and Germanis's study by five leading experts on WIC program research: Michael J. Brien and Christopher A. Swann, Nancy R. Burstein, Barbara L. Devaney, and Robert Greenstein."--Jacket

America's disconnected youth : toward a preventive strategy by Douglas J Besharov( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Adolescence is a time of both great opportunity and risk, as young people experience physical change, intellectual growth, self-discovery, and growing independence. Unfortunately, some young people have difficulty making the transition from adolescence to productive adulthood. America's Disconnected Youth: Toward a Preventive Strategy identifies these young people as "disconnected" and examines mentoring and school-to-work programs as important strategies for assisting these youth. The chapters include in-depth descriptions of the factors that have contributed to the disconnection of these young people from fulfulling adult lives. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET

Adjusting to a world in motion : trends in global migration and migration policy( )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

International migration has reached new heights since the 1960s. Altogether, some 215 million people live in countries other than their countries of birth, and according to surveys, another 700 million say they would leave their homes and move to another country if they could. Nations - both sending and receiving - have responded to this growing international migrant flow with new laws and domestic programs. In receiving countries, they include laws and programs to control entry, encourage high-skilled immigration, develop refugee policy, and speed assimilation. In sending countries, governments are implementing and experimenting with new policies that link migrant diasporas back to their home countries culturally or economically-or both. This volume contains a series of thoughtful analyses of some of the most critical issues raised in both receiving and sending countries, including US immigration policy, European high skilled labor programs, the experiences of migrants to the Gulf States, the impact of immigration on student educational achievement, and how post-conflict nations connect with their diasporas. We hope that the volume helps readers draw lessons for their own countries, and, hence, is offered in the spirit of mutual learning within a continued international dialogue of research and analysis on migration.--
