Global Refugee Resettlement: Selected Issues and Questions [Updated January 29, 2021]   [open pdf - 469KB]

From the Document: "Congress has demonstrated a continued interest in refugee 'resettlement', although such opportunities are available to only a small percentage of the global refugee population. (For more information on the refugee 'admissions' process to the United States, see CRS [Congressional Research Service] Report RL31269, 'Refugee Admissions and Resettlement Policy'.) Due to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) travel bans, on March 17, 2020, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) announced the suspension of global resettlement travel for refugees. On June 18, 2020, they announced the resumption of resettlement departures for refugees, although many travel restrictions remain in place."
