Helping Young Refugees and Immigrants Succeed: Public Policy, Aid, and Education

It has become a major challenge for the United States' public policy, educational system, and non-governmental aid organizations to help the vast numbers of young immigrants and refugees to have successful lives and careers and to fulfill their potential in their new country. In a unique effort, this book brings together, for the first time, scholarly analyses by eminent researchers of the historical, social, legal, and cultural influences on the young newcomers' lives as well as reports by practitioners in major aid organizations about the concrete work that their organizations have been carrying out.
