Content from the Brookings Institution India Center is now archived. After seven years of an impactful partnership, as of September 11, 2020, Brookings India is now the Centre for Social and Economic Progress, an independent public policy institution based in India.

Indian migrants in the United States remain unique compared to the majority of U.S. immigrants. Indians in the U.S. are high-skilled, highly-educated, and have high incomes compared to the general U.S. population and other immigrant groups. Neil Ruiz will present and examine the main sources for Indian migration to the U.S., particularly those entering the U.S. via the H-1B visa programme and the foreign student F-1 visa programme. He will also present the demographic profiles of Indians in the U.S. such as income and educational attainment.

Speaker Profile: Neil G. Ruiz is the Associate Director of Global Migration and Demography at the Pew Research Center in Washington D.C. USA. He studies the international movement of people across borders, the impact of migration on sending and receiving countries, high-skilled immigration to the U.S., and comparative immigrant visa systems. Prior to joining the Center, Neil has worked as a migration expert at the Brookings Institution, the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank. He received his doctorate in political economy from MIT, a master’s degree in economic history from Oxford University, a bachelor’s degree in political science from University of California, Berkeley.

Discussant: Shivender Singh, Vice–president, Global Trade & Development, NASSCOM

Chair: Shamika Ravi, Senior Fellow and Director of Research, Brookings India
