MEDIA REVIEWS
The Crux of Refugee Resettlement is an intriguing and uplifting exploration of the way that resettled refugees adapt to their new homes, focusing on the limitations of formal assistance programs and the central role played by social networks, solidarity and community-based action in the integration process. This is essential reading for policymakers, practitioners and researchers engaged in the issue of refugee resettlement. -- Jeff Crisp, former Head of Policy Development and Evaluation, Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees
The Crux of Refugee Resettlement has strongly advanced the field of migration and refugee studies with this deeply insightful and comprehensive exploration of the complexities in the lives of displaced peoples and their making (remaking) of new homes. This human-centered book understands refugee strengths and possibilities while also discussing internal weaknesses and conflicts of the community, revealing a treasure of qualitative and partnership methodologies that have allowed the authors to gain trust of and access to the refugee and immigrant communities. It demonstrates the social capital, strengths, and strategies that refugees utilize to overcome poorly constructed and administered government policies, and presents new methods of understanding best practices. Indeed, it becomes evident that refugees have much to teach all of us. -- Alan LeBaron, Kennesaw State University
