In-country processing and orderly departure programmes


In-country processing, sometimes known as ‘orderly departure’, enables people in refugee-like situations - but who have not yet fled their homes - to be processed within their countries of origin and then resettled abroad. This project examines in-country programs run by the United States, Canada and Australia over the last three decades.
