Migration, be it voluntary or forced (escaping wars, conflicts, natural disasters and other emergencies), can have complicated consequences at the social and psychological levels of individuals concerned. After leaving the stability of home, country and culture, migrants are exiled into countries where they often feel alienated, isolated and struggle from discrimination and violations of their basic human rights. As a practitioner, humanitarian worker, policy maker or researcher, it is vital to understand the psychosocial consequences of migration.

There is increasing recognition that humanitarian crises affect people differently and that there is a need to ensure that the differing needs of men, women, boys and girls are met within humanitarian response. Humanitarian programmes have often neglected to see and address these differences and by doing so neglect to meet the needs of those most affected. Additionally, by failing to address gender, humanitarian responses risk inadvertently making the situation of those affected by crises even worse.
Millions of children around the world do not have what they need to survive, learn and thrive because governments do not prioritise them, do not listen to them and are not held accountable when they fail them. Others are not equipped to give children what they need because they do not have the right data to properly plan or do not invest enough in children’s health, learning and protection.
