About Aubrey W. Bonnett

I am a Sociologist trained in the areas of Immigration,Political(Development), Race/Ethnic Relations and Medical.My research interests are both theoretical and practical(applied). During a rather substantial sojourn in the area of academic administration, at the tertiary level, I have also been involved in research,consulting and writing in these areas.
A major cohort of my work lies in the areas of micro- lending and capital formation among immigrants in developed polities and economies, and I have replicated Ivan Light's work(UCLA) on Rotating Credit and Saving Associations(ROSCAS) among Asian immigrants , on this occasion - among black West Indian immigrants to the USA.
My most recent work, since demiting administrative office, has been in the area of remittances and their use by diasporic nationals- both in the host and donor societies.
Also, consulting with private legal entities and governmental organizations about how capital is accumulated and distributed, and how much variation there is among these populations, as to utilization.
