Description: This paper seeks to understand contemporary refugee resettlement by analyzing its history, evaluating the assumptions underlying current practice, and exploring opportunities to strengthen the effectiveness and efficiency of refugee resettlement in three key areas: the identification of refugees for resettlement, the international processing of refugees by resettlement countries, and the promotion of alternative migration opportunities, or complementary pathways, to provide meaningful protection to refugees in need of resettlement.
