While the U.S. refugee resettlement experience reflects the interplay between international, national, and local actors, in practice it is influenced by the efforts of distinctly local resources and institutions.

Wilson and Audrey Singer examine the patterns and implications of refugee resettlement in U.S. metropolitan areas.
