Our Work - Refugee Economies
In September 2021, we began a new phase of the Refugee Economies Programme thanks to a new three-year funding agreement with the IKEA Foundation. This new phase builds on our previous research on the socio-economic inclusion of refugees in camps and cities in East Africa.
We will continue to update this site as our research progresses.
Borders, Mobility, and Livelihoods
What are the patterns and drivers for refugees' mobility, and how do these movements shape refugees' livelihood strategies, opportunities for self-reliance, and socio-economies outcomes?
Shocks, Vulnerability, and Livelihoods
What are the main coping strategies used by refugee households in case of negative shocks, and how can they be strengthened?
The Politics of Socio-Economic Rights
Why do some states provide refugees with socio-economic rights and opportunities, while others do not?
