Welcome! This new site will focus on the management of refugees, with particular attention to current issues, needs, and processes for dealing with emergencies from conflict zones and later on refugees from climate change conditions. It offers both a U.S. and Canadian perspective, featuring lead authors from both countries.
Since the field is so new, articles and reports will provide most of the information on this topic. We welcome readers’ suggestions, comments, and input. And we would be glad to have sponsors and contributors.
