Detroit, Michigan, USA: A Case Study of Refugees in Towns
When the American auto industry took a downturn in the 1990s and 2000s, it left numerous neighborhoods in and around Detroit impoverished and neglected. This case report looks at the way Syrian and other Arab and Muslim refugees and migrants are renovating these aged neighborhoods with their own cultural heritage. The author is a migrant from Iran who spent years living in Detroit.
