Description: 

Anyone moving to a country where culture, tradition and practices are different from one’s own can be expected to undergo an adjustment period of variable duration and difficulty. Refugees accepted for resettlement to third countries often come straight out of camps and have little, if any, knowledge of the societal and economic practices of a modern, capitalistic country.
