Both refugees and foreign national victims of human trafficking are eligible for refugee resettlement benefits. How can these benefits be optimized to increase individual economic empowerment and economic development for the communities in which these individuals are resettled? This course will develop innovations to facilitate the economic integration of refugees and victims of human trafficking both during and after the resettlement process. These innovations may include educational programs to help these individuals start businesses or find employment, matching services to help them find entrepreneurship or career development mentors, funding or microfinance options to help them fund new businesses, or legal assistance to secure the documents necessary to obtain employment or start a business.
