Reading List

This is a reading list about refugees and asylum seekers. Some of it pertains to refugee policy, strategies for resettlement and integration, and global development. Others are interesting stories by or about refugees which can be fiction or nonfiction. As I read these I'll leave a little paragraph synopsis and my general thoughts. I hope this might encourage you to read more about refugees and asylum seekers in the world and at home.

I'm also totally open to suggestions
