Authors: Wake, Caitlin

Keywords: refugees; livelihood; muslim minority; Rohingya; human rights
Issue Date: Jun-2016
Publisher: Humanitarian Policy Group
Description: "This Working Paper presents the findings from the first case study of a two-year research programme designed to generate insight into the lives and livelihoods of refugees in protracted displacement. It adds to a growing range of evidence gathered through previous Humanitarian Policy Group (HPG) research on forced migration and livelihoods, including publications on urban displacement, protracted displacement, vulnerability and livelihoods (cf. Crawford et al., 2015; Metcalfe et al., 2012; Haysom and Sarraj, 2012; Levine, 2014). The study is built on the assertion that efforts over many years to engage in more participatory ways with refugees have not succeeded in ensuring that interventions are planned and implemented such that they accord with their lives, perspectives and priorities."
