An international research collaboration in partnership with Doha International Family Institute (DIFI), University of Guelph, and the University of Calgary. The project assessed the impact of pre-and-post migration on marital relations and family dynamics among Arab refugee
families; and, examined the role of professional service providers in supporting these Arab refugee families. The recommendations are: Social services- Enhance the utilization of Culturally Integrative Responses; provide culturally focused training; strengthen existing services to meet the unique needs of this population; Social Policy- Extend existing financial and
settlement support beyond one year; Re-examine current immigration policy governing Government Assisted Refugee and the Privately Sponsored Refugee programs.
The project is completed, and the final report is posted on https://www.difi.org.qa/publications/
