Resources to help you learn

In addition to the bibliography that new volunteers receive at training, a more comprehensive list of resources is maintained to help you learn about refugees and their experiences. Project SOAR, part of the International Rescue Committee, updates the list monthly. This list is a collection of books, articles, and films with links to find out more about each resource.
