Unlocking Protracted Displacement of Refugees and IDPs: Somali and Iraqi displacements and policy responses
The protracted displacement of refugees and IDPs constitutes a pressing yet seemingly intractable challenge facing the international community. Since 2010, the RSC has led a project, with the support of the Norwegian government and in cooperation with IDMC, NRC and NUPI, that suggests a number of innovative strategies to better match international policy to the needs of those trapped in protracted displacement. At an event co-hosted by the Refugee Studies Centre and UNHCR in London, the lead researchers shared their findings on Somali and Iraqi displacements and discussed with a group of 30 policymakers and practitioners some of the possible avenues for future policy responses.
