Beyond the headlines, the lives of refugees and asylum seekers are shaped by the realities on the ground in the communities where they live. What makes a receiving community a welcoming community? What infrastructure is needed to facilitate the social, economic, and civic integration of newcomers? How do needs align or diverge for refugees and asylum seekers? Join GCIR and leaders from the field for a conversation on how communities are working to support both newcomers and long-term residents.
