Summary: “Send Them Here: Religion, Politics and Refugee Resettlement in North America” (Introduction and Overview)

This book examines the development of refugee resettlement policy in North America post WWII and explores the role and influence of religious groups in its development. Historically, Canada and the USA have been the leading resettlement countries. The book examines the puzzle of how the US and Canada developed such different, counter-intuitive refugee resettlement systems.
