This report was written in response to reports from resettlement agencies on a rising number of Iraqi refugees who are unhappy with their lives in resettlement countries. Interviews and focus groups were conducted to discuss Iraqis’ expectations of resettlement, which revealed that sixty-seven percent of adults feel that their main reason for resettling is to ensure their children’s future.
