Evan Easton-Calabria, RSC Research Assistant and DPhil student, has written a new blog for the Italian A-id think tank about the role refugees themselves play in leading initiatives and assisting other refugees. She states that “when we think of leaders to address the issue of forced displacement, we often envision heads of states or the UN. Rarely do we think of refugees.”

She asks, “why not?”

Refugee-led initiatives are currently under-researched. The blog highlights research that Evan is working on “to create the first evidence base that systematically and comparatively documents the ways in which refugees in East Africa engage in the provision of protection and assistance to their own communities, i.e. refugee-led social protection.”
