Understanding refugees’ connectivity
Worldwide, more than 16 million displaced people have been in exile for long periods of time without prospect of return, resettlement or local integration. While they are experiencing protracted displacement, most are not helpless. Many refugees and internally displaced people can draw on the support of transnational and local networks. The EU-funded TRAFIG project undertakes comparative empirical research in refugee camps, cities and rural areas in Africa, Asia as well as Europe and aims at answering the following questions: How do displaced people deal with the complex system of asylum and aid? How do refugees sustain their living in long-lasting situations of uncertainty? How do transnational networks affect refugees’ lives and future options? How do displaced people and host communities interact? What are the wider economic impacts of displacement? The overarching goal of the project is to support the development of alternative solutions to protracted displacement.
