ABSTRACT
Refugees in migration have expectations for life-conditions and change in host countries. Vietnamese refugees living in a camp in Malaysia responded to items on a multi-dimensional inventory designed to enable description of envisioned futures, and level of change expected in the course of resettlement. Respondents' expectations for alternative futures and levels of change in terms of their social, economic, cultural, occupational and spiritual lives suggest anticipated circumstances that may be asynchronous with realities they are likely to encounter Refugees' self assessment of high levels of preparedness for live in radically different social anal cultural environments in the West appear inconsistent with marginal expectations for change, and with expressed capacities to maintain traditional life-ways.
