The United States' New Refugees: A Review of the Research on the Resettlement of Indochinese, Cubans, and Haitians. ERIC/CUE Urban Diversity Series, Number 75.
This review of research on recent refugees to the United States focuses on the Indochinese, Haitians and Cubans. An introduction stresses the need for more information to enhance a better understanding of the newcomers. Succeeding sections review published literature on: (1) the development of Federal policy concerning refugees, emphasizing the difference in policy requirements for the earlier Soviet/East European refugees and those for the new group of refugees; (2) the new refugees' cultural backgrounds, especially as these affect resettlement; (3) aspects of the refugee experience, particularly the circumstances surrounding their flight from their countries; (4) transition experiences and refugee camp conditions; (5) experience in the new culture, culture shock, and orientation programs; (6) educational policy and programs; (7) employment and sociocultural adjustment; and finally, (8) problems in emotional adjustment and solutions to adjustment problems.
