Assistant Director for Research, Center for Latin American & Latino Studies
Dennis Stinchcomb is Assistant Director for Research at American University’s Center for Latin American & Latino Studies (CLALS). In this capacity, he coordinates several CLALS projects, including the Center's portfolio of research on migration-related issues and Central American gangs. He is the co-author, with Eric Hershberg, of a 2014 study addressing the drivers of increased migration to the U.S. of unaccompanied children and families from Central America. The report also analyzed factors that influence new arrivals’ prospects for securing immigration relief in light of recent trends. He is currently working with CLALS researchers on a pilot study gathering data on the household arrangements and school integration of unaccompanied migrant youth resettled in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
