    • A new policy brief, based on studies conducted by the EU Horizon 2020 research project TRAFIG in two refugee-hosting countries in Africa, Ethiopia and Tanzania, highlights the critical role that networks play in getting refugee businesses up and running.
    • Friday, 16 July 2021: “While the findings from Ethiopia and Tanzania highlight the important role of individual-level support, they also point to a potential role for donors, investors and NGOs in strengthening networks and providing start-up capital to get more refugee ventures off the ground, thereby lifting refugees out of protracted displacement”, the authors conclude.

  • [Publication] No refuge. The crisis of refugee militarization in Africa.

    • The militarization of refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs), especially in Africa, is causing growing alarm within the humanitarian and development commonities.
