Traditional approaches to managing forced displacement remain largely child blind. This third JDC Quarterly Digest highlights some examples of research which contribute to closing these gaps, by focusing on three main areas of investigation: mental health risks faced by forcibly displaced children; evidence from existing evaluations and assessments on ‘what works’; and emerging research into the use of technological innovations for the management of child migration and displacement data.
This JDC supported study on the aftermath of COVID-19 in the Mashreq Region dives into the changes in Poverty since the onset of COVID-19 on Syrian Refugees and Host Communities in Jordan, the Kurdistan Region of Iraq and Lebanon.
This inaugural issue of the JDC Paper Series on Forced Displacement highlights how investments are urgently needed for evidence-based humanitarian response to improve the lives of FDPs and their host communities during the pandemic.
In this JDC Quarterly Digest, we seek to understand whether any short-term benefits from forced displacement accruing to host countries dissipate or persist over time, particularly when refugees return to their countries of origin or relocate elsewhere. Additionally, in contexts where large inflows of refugees lead to adverse impacts on host communities in the short-term, whether these problems resolve in the longer-term.
The high-frequency phone survey of refugees monitors the economic and social impact of and responses to the COVID-19 pandemic on refugees and nationals, by calling a sample of households every four weeks. Round 1 of data collection for the refugee sample occurs simultaneously with Round 6 of the national HFPS operation. This survey brief summarizes the results of the first round of the joint national and refugee HFPS, implemented between 24 September and 17 October 2020.
This JDC Quarterly Digest focuses on the impacts of forced displacement on education outcomes for internally displaced populations, refugees and their host communities. It further looks at some of the policies and interventions that provide strong evidence for a shift towards national inclusive education systems and calls for strengthening the evidence base on what works to create sustainable, inclusive solutions.
The JDC has compiled a Primer on Research Activities, summarizing research and projects related to COVID-19 (coronavirus) and its impact on Forcibly Displaced Persons. The Primer will be updated regularly, with new research on this issue.
This report on Understanding the Socioeconomic Conditions of Refugees in Kaloyebei is the first analytical work supported by the JDC. The report, which was jointly launched by the World Bank and UNHCR, is based on 2018 Kalobeyei Socioeconomic Profiling Survey and presents some of the comparable demographic and socioeconomic snapshots of the refugees and host communities, and highlight how microdata are fundamental to understanding vulnerabilities and guiding interventions.
