dc.description.abstractDrawing on a case study of resettled Karenni refugees from Myanmar in Omaha, in the American Midwest, this article explores the role, function, and potential of refugees’ identification with a religious belief and value system and membership in a religious organization for successful resettlement, and discusses the suitability of a common social science concept – social capital – to further our understanding of religions’ role, function, and potential for refugee resettlement. The article argues that resettlement agencies that are engaging with religious organizations as their partners can increase refugees’ access to social support, associated with identifying with a religious belief system and belonging to a religious organization, and the likelihood for successful resettlement.|Keywords: refugees, resettlement, social capital, Karenni, United Statesen_US
