Evaluating the Iraqi Resettlement Experience

Home  /  Uncategorized  /  Current Page

Georgetown Law’s Human Rights Action, in partnership with the Human Rights Institute at Georgetown Law, released a report: Refugee Crisis in America; Iraqis and Their Resettlement Experience earlier this month. The report examines the challenges of resettling to the United States, as well as evaluates the effectiveness of the U.S. resettlement system. Over nine months, students interviewed refugees and representatives from UNHCR, IOM, NGOs, and the U.S. Government in Washington, DC, Detroit, MI, San Diego, CA and Amman, Jordan. The report finds that while the United States Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) is unique and accepts more refugees than the rest of the world combined, it is in dire need of more funding and programs need to be designed to promote long-term self-sufficiency and integration. Please read the report to see more findings and recommendations.
