Refugee Resettlement: A Comprehensive Approach to Resettlement and Integration

Research Fellow: Noël Busch-Armendariz

The Refugee Resettlement project aims to identify what conditions and services are necessary for refugee resettlement to be successful and identify lessons from refugee resettlement that will benefit the larger immigrant population. IDVSA and its partners seek to research and identify long-term outcomes of resettlement, create agreement on the meaning of “successful resettlement”, and develop and implement key integration benchmarks and the outcome measures to evaluate the parameters of an immigrant legalization program.
