Mentor: Dr. Nazli Avdan

I studied the connection between the efficacy of refugee integration programs and government systems. I looked at legislation, scholarly work, news articles, and public social media accounts, particularly those of political and military leaders. To determine the success of integration programs, I analyzed metrics such as voting, test scores, higher education enrollment rates, and employment figures. I evaluated which programs and governments have been successful in integrating refugee populations.
