Refugees and International Migration

Global migration has implications for sending, transit, and receiving countries. Urban Institute researchers are tackling this from many angles, with study of refugee populations and receiving societies in the developing world and the United States.

The Urban Institute is currently fielding the Annual Survey of Refugees for the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement and leading an effort to assess and redesign the survey while convening stakeholders to set a policy research agenda on refugee self-sufficiency and integration in the United States. The collection of evidence to inform debates on refugees and other immigrants in the U.S. is critical.
