People leave fragile environments for many reasons including insecurity and fear caused by conflict, environmental changes, poverty and the search for better opportunities. Regardless of the reason for migration or displacement, both exodus and influx of people can have a significant impact on the areas people leave and those they arrive in.
We provide vital research into the processes and reasoning behind migration and displacement and the dynamics between displaced people and host communities.
Our research and analysis team provides research into the reasons why people migrate or become displaced, assessing their needs and understanding the effect their arrival has on new host environments. Such research is key to accommodating the needs of both groups, preventing instability and enhancing the positive social and economic opportunities presented.
Our training and capacity building team offers NGOs, local governments and donors advice and training on how to build the capacity of host communities to receive migrants, understand the risks of destabalisation and harness the potential of migrants to contribute to their new environment.
Our programme design and evaluation team helps organisations to develop a theory of change for their work in order to address the needs of migrants, displaced people and host communities. We design monitoring tools to assess activities and relevant indicators to measure outcomes, as well as build evaluations into programme implementation to improve project delivery and adaptability in rapidly changing contexts.
Our stakeholder engagement team hosts governments, community representatives, civil society organisations and refugee representatives to align around shared goals and objectives.
Our team of researchers, anthropologists and urban and rural conflict specialists have worked extensively on varied aspects of migration and displacement with specific relevance to the Middle East, Asia and North East Africa.
We have developed assistance projects for migrants and displaced people in post conflict environments in various parts of the Middle East and Africa and conducted extensive research of urban migration and social rehabilitation between host and migrant communities and explored the linkages between ghettoisation and marginalisation and the radicalisation of migrant communities.
