Publisher's Synopsis

One in every ninety-five people on the planet has been forcibly displaced from their home and our collective response is woefully inadequate. Through comparative case study, Refugee Solutions in the Age of Global Crisis provides the first policy analysis in 70 years of the three durable solutions -- voluntary repatriation, local integration, and third country resettlement -- and offers implications for their reform. Reforming yesterday's solutions requires understanding how they have been used, how they have failed, and how they can be improved. Using comparative case studies of the Somali Voluntary Repatriation Program, the Kalobeyei Integrated Settlement, and the Arizona Refugee Empowerment Project this book provides a comprehensive, global, and timely policy analysis grounded in social work, human rights, and sustainable development. The case studies focus on refugee policies and populations from Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and North America, as well as contemporary voluntary repatriation, local integration, and third country resettlement programs. This book offers implications for improving refugee solutions to promote human rights, integration, and sustainable development. This is vital to counter the rising tide of restrictionist, anti-refugee sentiment and policies.
