Description: Master’s Paper, Clark University, Department of International Development, Community and Environment

This study explores the workforce insertion process of Somali refugees in the United States. It also addresses the impact that formal instructions, ethnic enclaves, and previous class status have on this process. The research identifies distorted information and language barriers as two key obstacles to successful workforce insertion. The author concludes by recommending an expanded study with more interviews and geographic locations as well as examining age, gender and tribal relations among Somali refugees.
