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.
The new grant supports five new areas of work: Borders, mobility, and livelihoods; Shocks, vulnerability, and livelihoods; The politics of socio-economic rights; Refugee Stories, and the Refugee-Led Research Hub.
We will continue to update this site as our research progresses.
Supporting scholars and researchers from displaced communities, predominantly in Eastern Africa, to be leaders in knowledge production and decision making in the field of Forced Migration Studies and humanitarian research.
