Economic Impact of Refugees on Host Communities

This project explores the varied roles of the social capital and social networks in urban refugees’ quest for self-reliance. The findings will allow humanitarian agencies to target direct humanitarian assistance at those less likely to succeed, and to support broader initiatives to encourage self-reliance. UDA undertook baseline data collection by in-person survey method and focus-group discussions. More than 1000 households were surveyed.
