The Crux of Refugee Resettlement : Rebuilding Social Networks, Hardback Book


While the world's refugee population reaches record high numbers, countries offering third-country resettlement are increasingly shifting toward policies of exclusion and austerity.

This edited volume envisions a more humane future for refugee resettlement.

Combining anthropology with a variety of professional perspectives (education, health care, theology, administration, politics, and social work) ethnography is used to demonstrate the efficacy of programs and interventions that create and nurture social capital in culturally specific and accessible ways.

The contributors present case studies of resettlement in the United States, England, Australia, and Canada and contend that social networks have an essential role-are the crux-in the reconfigurations of refugee well-being, belonging, and place-making vis-a-vis the bureaucratic limitations of state and institutional factors.

This book includes short contributions from refugees, representatives of resettlement organizations, and government officials, including Jhuma N.
