Community Research and Practice with Refugees: An Overview

Part of the Clinical Sociology: Research and Practice book series (CSRP)

During the last century, the world has become more connected than ever before. Improvements in transportation and modifications in immigration lawhave meant increasingly diverse populations for many countries to a degree that would not have been possible a century ago. Today, persons displaced from their countries of origin by wars and civil strife constitute much of the foreign-born population in countries around the world. Disagreement over who has the responsibility to respond to the world's problems and what the response should be is a critical issue as we begin the twenty-first century. This chapter presents an overview of refugee resettlement in the global arena, as well as the more specific policies and procedures in the United States, in order to set the context for resettlement services for refugees in local communities.
