Description of Resource

This study looks at the experiences of Iraqis after they arrive in the U.S.  Though resettlement remains an important solution for many Iraqi refugees, this report finds that the services provided by the U.S. Resettlement Program are seriously lacking.  This report includes a number of case examples (Appendix III), based off of interviews with Iraqi refugees, that may be useful to service providers preparing to serve such families.
