Part of the IMISCOE Research Series book series (IMIS)

Abstract

Social vulnerability refers to the relative lack of protection of a group of people when they face potential damage to their health, threats to the satisfaction of their basic needs, and violation of their human rights due to their lesser financial, personal, social and legal resources. Individuals and societies cope with these adverse conditions by mitigating or adapting to hazards in different ways. For instance, people migrate (oftentimes temporarily) seeking better circumstances that allow them to alleviate the worst effects of social vulnerability in the short term or remedy them in the medium-to-long run by allowing them to live in more secure, stable, and salubrious environments.

    By 2013, 15 of the 50 states in the U.S. allowed undocumented students that graduated from high school to pay in-state tuition. They include: California, New Mexico, and Texas. In order to do so, they had to create their own laws to allow these students to attend college. At the other extreme, some states prohibit undocumented students to apply to, or attend, public universities. These include South Carolina and Alabama. Still, most states make undocumented students pay out-of-state tuition. <http://www.ncsl.org/research/immigration/in-state-tuition-and-unauthorized-immigrants.aspx>.
