Using a variety of approaches, including baselines studies, impact evaluations, and qualitative research, we examine the viability and impact of some of the most exciting and challenging ideas relating to Refugee Economies.
The innovative approaches we explore come from a variety of sources: governments, international organisations, and NGOs. However, they also frequently emerge from the ‘bottom-up’, including from refugees and refugee-led organisations, for example.
We collaborate actively with a range of partner organisations in order to undertake methodologically rigorous impact evaluations as a means to contribute to a culture of learning within the global refugee system. For example, we have recently undertaken collaborative studies that look at market-based interventions by the World Food Programme in the recently created Kalobeyei settlement in Kenya, and by the IKEA Foundation in the Dollo Ado refugee camps in Ethiopia.
