Reprogramming the Mix of Interventions to Support Refugees in Host Communities
This is an output from a project that was part of the fifth Applied Research Fund (ARF) on mixed migration flows. The ARF is executed by NWO-WOTRO in close collaboration with the Platform. The call aims to strengthen the evidence-base for security and rule of law policies and programming, addressing the root causes, and the dynamics and consequences of mixed migration flows within and from fragile and conflict-affected settings.
This study investigates the dynamics of migratory trajectories from Eritrean refugees’ place of origin to the host communities. The focus is on Eritrean migrants that leave Eritrea through Sudan or Ethiopia and who end up directly, or return eventually to the refugee camps in these countries.
The research looks at four different themes. Firstly, the modus operandi of human traffickers along the route. Secondly, the unaccompanied minors and youth in the refugee camps and their strategies to be resilient and autonomous. Thirdly, the effects of trauma and post-traumatic stress among the refugees and tools to support them. Fourthly, issues regarding livelihood.
