The Refugee Economies Programme has a new website, providing access to all its publications, events, multimedia, and a new library of resources relating to the economic lives of refugees and displaced persons.
Led by Professor Alexander Betts, the Refugee Economies Programme undertakes research on the economic lives of refugees. Through primary data collection, it explores the conditions under which refugees can become self-sufficient and make positive economic contributions to their host states and societies. The Programme’s research is interdisciplinary, combining economics, anthropology, history, and political science. It collects original qualitative and quantitative data, and often draws upon a range of participatory methods, including working with refugee researchers. The Programme aims to be policy-relevant but not policy-driven, and collaborates with governments, international organisations, NGOs, refugee-led organisations, universities, and businesses.
The work of the Refugee Economies Programme is funded mainly by the IKEA Foundation.
