Description

This study aims to learn more about how residents with refugee background end up in their new home in Wisconsin, how they fare after resettling here, what factors help to predict their level of success in resettlement, what services from local organizations are most important and what gaps exist. Information from this study will help local resettlement partners provide better service to residents with refugee background, and help the people from our research sites to better understand the realities of life for people who have experienced forced migration and resettlement. After getting in contact with participating local refugees, the participants complete a pre-interview survey online, face-to-face, or in writing. Next, they are interviewed by members of the team in an open-ended style either online or in-person. If they choose to continue, they are given a camera and asked to take pictures based off a series of questions and then interviewed in a similar fashion about their photographs. Lastly, this information is coded into more measurable data to be reviewed and analyzed by researchers and published. The study will continue interviews until June 2018.
