I spent a quick few hours in Utica with Danish writer Martin Burcharth on a story about Utica, New York's refugee community for the Danish newspaper Dagbladet Information. Martin had written a series of articles on the subject in the mid-90s, mostly about resettled Bosnian refugees, and wanted to revisit the city to see what had become of the program. Nearly a third of Utica's population comprises refugees from around the world resettled by the US Department of State and the Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees, which was founded in 1979. Bosnians, Somali Bantu, Sudanese from Darfur, Karen, Burmese, Thai, Czech, Russian, and other nationalities have found new lives in Utica, a city long abandoned by industry and business. These new Americans have started businesses and otherwise become part of the community.   The article is available, in Danish only, on Information's website.
