Information as refuge: Informing refugee support service planning and policies

    Research output: Research - peer-reviewAbstract

    Abstract

    How well do refugees recognize and understand the information horizons that open before them when they relocate from their countries of origin? How do service providers interact with newcomers and what impact do their information services have on assisting refugees to settle into unfamiliar new territories? What practices do service providers enact to enable participation and reduce barriers to information acquisition and use? How well do the providers coordinate and administer their efforts while sharing information among themselves (i.e., with other service providers)? These questions guide this study of the information behaviours of service providers working to settle refugees.
