The RCUSA Policy Center

Resources & Research

Celebrating member expertise and new coalition research

The relaunched Policy Center will serve as a hub of resources for programs and advocacy for the protection of forcibly displaced people. Here, RCUSA will continue its original research projects, finding pathways and solutions for systemic issues plaguing US humanitarian protection programs. The full resource library will be launched in the coming months, but visitors can preview RCUSA's research work below.


RCUSA's 36-member coalition represent the country's leading experts on all-things humanitarian protection, including resettlement, asylum, humanitarian parole, private and community sponsorship; and represent constituent leaders. Visitors will be able to explore a myriad of their resources and work through RCUSA's forthcoming resource library.


Utilizing the relationships and knowledge from across the coalition, RCUSA engages in cutting-edge research projects with its partners. Dedicated to community leadership and buy-in, RCUSA's continued research projects aim to represent new, equitable, and creative solutions to systemic problems.

Resettlement 2.0

Released in December 2020, "Charting a Course to Rebuild and Strengthen the US Refugee Admissions Program" was the result of nationwide listening sessions with key stakeholders involved in the US Refugee Admissions Program - clients, service providers, and government partners alike. Co-created with RCUSA member Center for Migration Studies NY, "Charting a Course" illustrates some of the most important changes needed for a 21st century resettlement program.

Diving deeper into the question of what successful refugee integration looks and feels like, RCUSA and member organizations ECDC and Refugee Congress embarked on a co-designed research project to redefine success. This report outlines a new framework for success, and what some of the most critical factors are for individuals seeking to rebuild their lives in the US.
