Dr. Jenna L. Hennebry's research expertise includes comparative studies of migration policy and foreign worker programs, migrant worker rights and health, the formation of migration industries, migrant remittances, ICTs and development, transnationalism, mobility and globalization, and racialization. She has experience in academic, public policy, and applied research domains. Hennebry’s research portfolio includes comparative studies of migration policy and foreign worker programs, migrant rights and health, the formation of migration industries, non-state migration mediation, racialization and representation of migrants, and the role of ICTs and remittances in development. Her work has relevance for international and national public policy, as well as studies of transnationalism and integration, mobility and globalization.
Recent work examines the role of non-state actors and an expanding migration industry in foreign worker programs, transnational migrant farmworker health and access to health care and insurance, a comparative study of labour migration from Mexico-US/Canada with Morocco-Spain, as well as a comparative study of the role of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in labour migration programs in Canada and Spain. Hennebry is currently the principal investigator on two research projects: "Mediating Mobility: Temporary Migration and Private Sector Influence in Canada’s Immigration System” (Social Sciences and Humanities Council of Canada, 2009-2012), and “Responding to Temporary Migration in Agriculture“ (Workplace Safety and Insurance Board, 2009-2010), and is a co-investigator on various others including projects funded by SSHRC International Opportunities Fund Project Grant (2009-2010), and the Ministerio de Ciencia e innovación, del Gobierno Central, Government of Spain (2010-2011).
