Author/s: JUSTIN BISIMWA MUDEKEREZA
A unique challenge that confronts many governments on the planet is the way to reasonably and sustainably address the refugees' migrants. The issue of refugee migrant is intensely political as the rising number of migrants comes in handy with pressure as well as many needs that it impacts on the local community. The study used a mixed and cross-sectional research design using descriptive research design, (quantitative and qualitative) to determine strategies used in the sustainable solutions to address management problems for refugee resettlement in San Diego, California. The quantitative research design was used to measure the degree of association between the dependent and the independent variables. The research phenomena were described using descriptive research design to provide an answer to the questions of how where what and how. The study used structured questionnaires to collect crucial data on various players involved in the sustainable solutions for addressing problems of management for refugee resettlement, the different sustainable solutions that would solve the function of the refugee management resettlement and the sustainable strategies and solutions techniques that can be advanced to ensure that refugee resettlement problems are eliminated.
The questionnaires were prepared carefully in the incoherence of the study objectives, hypotheses, and questions. The first section of the questionnaire focused on the demographic data of respondents while the other sections focused on the research dependent and independent variables. Likert scale range between1-5 was employed in the questionnaire; where 5-was Strongly Agree, 4-was Agree, 3-was Uncertain, 2-was Disagree, and 1-was Strongly Disagree. The researchers administered questionnaires using drop-off and pick-off methodology to provide the researcher with a room to personally obtain a more significant response by issuing the questionnaires. The study targeted a population of 260 respondents with a sample size of 78 respondents that included six stakeholders where four were within San Diego and two outside San Diego, six resettlement agencies, six ethnic community-based organizations, and 60 refugees.
The paper also used a stratified sampling technique to divide the sample into strata. The sampling was done randomly to bring out simplicity and clarity making the analysis and understanding of study comfortable with reasonably fewer struggles of explaining its functionality at 30 percent of the whole population. This was adequate when carrying out its research study thereby giving in-depth revelations and study findings. Of the 260 respondents that were targeted, 30% of this population represented a sample size. To analyze quantitative data, this research study employed the SPSS software as a study technique. To obtain the degree of relationship between independent variables and qualitative data, the level of confidence was tested at 95.05% leaving close to no margin of doubt.
