“Refugees often have skills, talents, and aspirations. And yet too often we focus just on their vulnerabilities rather than their capacities. Our research challenges the view that refugees are an inevitable burden, identifying the conditions under which they can help themselves and contribute to their host societies.”

The centrepiece of our research is the collection of an original panel data set, based on multi-country and time-series data collection. With an initial focus on Uganda, Kenya, and Ethiopia, and covering 2017-2020, the data set covers urban and rural areas, refugees and hosts, and includes multiple data collection periods.
