Unstable social climates are causing the displacement of large numbers of people around the world. Thus, the issue of safe replacement arises, causing the need for examining and improving the policies and strategies regarding immigration and helping these individuals integrate into new societies. This title is an authoritative resource for the latest research on the challenges, risks, and policies of current relocation and refugee flows and security problems, in relation to these aspects of immigration. Additionally, techniques for assimilating immigrants into important foundations of society, such as educational programs and healthcare systems, is examined. Highlighting a range of pertinent topics such as civil protection, humanitarian aid, and the refugee resettlement process, this publication is an ideal reference source for policymakers, managers, academicians, practitioners, and graduate-level students interested in current immigrant and refugee policies.
