7 Creative Commons FMR 54 - Surge and selection: power in the refugee resettlement regime There is an imbalance of power – and a resulting lack of agency for refugees – in the structure of the current resettlement regime. The top-down process of selection also poses ethical dilemmas, as recent surges in resettlement operations show. Annelisa Lindsay 23 Mar 2017
8 Creative Commons FMR 54 - A ‘successful’ refugee resettlement programme: the case of Nepal More than 100,000 Bhutanese refugees have been found homes in third countries. The other side to the story of this successful resettlement programme, however, is the failure to tackle the impact it has had on the remaining camp populations. Bipin Ghimire 23 Mar 2017
9 Creative Commons FMR 54 - Putting refugees at the centre of resettlement in the UK There are growing numbers of refugees in the UK who have been through a resettlement programme.

Amy Slaughter 23 Mar 2017
20 Creative Commons FMR 54 - Expanding the role of NGOs in resettlement With global resettlement needs growing and more refugees living outside camps, NGOs are uniquely positioned to identify and interview vulnerable refugees and to play a larger role in refugee resettlement. Melonee Douglas, Rachel Levitan, Lucy W Kiama 23 Mar 2017

Susanna Davies, Carol Batchelor 22 Mar 2017
22 Creative Commons FMR 54 - An unequal partnership: resettlement service providers in Australia The relationship between government and government-contracted refugee resettlement service providers in Australia needs to be based more on autonomy and trust. Niro Kandasamy 22 Mar 2017

31 Creative Commons FMR 54 - The story of a small Canadian congregation sponsoring a refugee family Steps for private refugee sponsorship in Canada are not clearly spelled out for those seeking to be sponsors.

Chloe Marshall-Denton 22 Mar 2017
