Taking Stock of Refugee Resettlement: Policy Objectives, Practical Tradeoffs, and the Evidence Base

In this recent report published by the Migration Policy Institute (MPI), Hanne Beirens and Susan Fratzke examine several resettlement programmes to hone in on the questions and tradeoffs that policymakers face when introducing new initiatives or scaling up existing efforts. In doing so, they are able to access some of their motivations and goals to resettle refugees, and point out gaps in data collection/analysis that ought to be remedied in order to make sure that policies are more effective.
