Alejandro Portes

Princess of Asturias Award for Social Sciences 2019

Statement by Alejandro Portes on being bestowed with the 2019 Princess of Asturias Award for Social Sciences

“I am greatly honoured by this award and deeply grateful to the members of the Jury and colleagues throughout Spain who supported my candidacy. During more than a decade of studies on migrations to Spain, I have come into contact and made friends with many members of Spanish academia. These studies showed that, on the whole, the integration of second generations –the children of immigrants– has been positive in Spain. It is a twofold honour to receive this award from a country where immigrants and their children have generally been able to become integrated and progress and whose policies in this regard could serve as an example to other countries that receive migrants.”
