Review of U.S. Refugee Resettlement Programs and Policies. A Report. Revised.
Moore, Charlotte J.
This government report reviews U.S. refugee resettlement programs and policies. Part I of the book provides an overview of U.S. refugee admissions programs and discusses refugee admissions policies for two time frames: 1945 to 1965, and 1965 to the present. In Part II an analysis of Federal assistance programs for domestic resettlement of refugees is found. This section describes assistance offered to refugees resettling in the U.S. and the legislation and programs authorizing such assistance. The Refugee Act of 1980 is covered in Part III. Major issues of the act are outlined along with its legislative history. The section concludes with a section-by-section summary of the Act. Appendices contain the complete text of the 1980 Refugee Act, a conference report and analysis of the Act, and a report on refugee resettlement in the U.S. by the TransCentury Foundation. The TransCentury report presents information regarding the Cuban, Hungarian, Indochinese, Chilean, Kurdish, and Soviet resettlement efforts, resettlement organizations, the needs of refugees, and resettlement models of other Western nations. Recommendations are offered and suggestions are made for refocusing efforts in some areas. (APM)
