When refugee status is unattainable, local communities and their governments struggle to support the needs of humanitarian migrants. With backing from the city of Medianeira, I presented the results and public policy recommendations of my study on the causes, consequences, and challenges of Haitian immigration to Brazil, which found that a lack of information and training among government officials was the greatest obstacle facing migrants.
