The protection and settlement of individuals and families fleeing persecution is a critical issue in our world, where more than 65 million people live as refugees. Global migration has implications for sending, transit, and receiving countries. Efforts to foster the integration and wellbeing of forced migrants involve organizations in the public, private, and non-profit sectors, at the level of the international community and in local host societies. Urban Institute researchers explore this from multiple angles, with work on refugee integration in the U.S. through the Annual Survey of Refugees, as well as in the international context.
