Bridging Divides: The Role of Ethnic Community-Based Organizations in Refugee Integration
By Kathleen Newland, Hiroyuki Tanaka, and Laura Barker
Almost 2.4 million refugees and asylees from at least 115 countries entered the United States between 1980 and 2006. Despite declines in refugee admissions, the United States continues to resettle more refugees than any other country. This study examines how organizations founded by refugees are helping others who have escaped violence and persecution abroad adjust to life in the United States.
