Refugee Resettlement in the U. S.: Time For A New Focus.
Taft, Julia Vadala; And Others
This is a comprehensive report on refugee resettlement in the United States in the past twenty-five years. Part one discusses general concerns of the refugee resettlement process, including: (1) the admission of refugees to the United States; (2) demographic profiles of refugee populations; (3) the needs of individual refugees during resettlement; and (4) organizations engaged in refugee resettlement. The second part of the report presents analyses of various major resettlement approaches, including programs for settling Hungarian, Cuban, Chilean, Kurdish, Soviet Jewish, and Indochinese refugees. In addition, the resettlement models of other western nations are considered. The Federal role, the role of private sector, and geographic settlement patterns are all considered. The third and final part of the report presents findings and recommendations regarding refocusing services to refugees and strengthening the institutions that serve refugees. (APM)
