The Refugee Children's Progress Report: Grading U.S. Refugee Policy from 2015-2017

The Refugee Children’s Progress Report gives grades to U.S. policy progress on four issues central to the health and well-being of refugee children: education, child protection, food security, and resettlement.

Nearly half of the world’s 17.2 million refugees are under 18 years old. And refugees of all ages now spend an average of 20 years living in exile. This means millions of refugee children will spend their entire childhood, teen and young adult years living in refugee camps or other displacement settings. U.S. foreign assistance commitments to help meet essential refugee education, food, and protection needs will mean the possibility of brighter futures for millions of these children. Continued U.S. resettlement opportunities for the most vulnerable will also allow hundreds of thousands of young refugees to go to bed at night feeling safe and secure.
