New Mercy Corps report says aid in Afghanistan and Somalia must both boost economies and build peace
Geneva – IOM, the UN Migration Agency, published today (22/12) the report Setting Standards for an Integrated Approach to Reintegration. The report, prepared and conducted by the Samuel Hall think tank, outlines recommendations to support sustainable reintegration of migrants who return to their home countries in the framework of Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration (AVRR) programmes.
In 2017, Samuel Hall conducted a study on key issues, actors, and tools in the current global landscape of Family Tracing & Reunification (FTR), commissioned by IKEA Foundation. Based on an extensive and rigorous literature review and 22 additional key informant interviews with FTR providers and experts worldwide, the study focused on the current landscape of FTR tools and methods, their respective actors and key challenges to accessing and providing the best FTR support services possible.
This report provides an evidence-based strategy for increasing employment opportunities and skills development for protracted and recent refugees in Kakuma refugee camp. By focusing on economic integration and capacity development, it directly contributes to the durable and transitional solutions agenda. This research was commissioned by the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) and Action Africa Help International( (AAHI) and funded by UNHCR.
1. ASSESSING RETURNS TO SOMALIA
Based on the requirements of Global Outcome 5, an evaluation of the UNICEF YEP programme has been commissioned by UNICEF to understand lessons that can be learnt from providing informal education in Somalia, both in the terms of delivering relevant skills that can improve the lives of beneficiaries, and the impact a tailored curriculum can have on peace building in Somalia when drivers of conflict are taken into account.
By reviewing existing initiatives, frameworks and commitments in the search of durable solutions in the region, this study conducted by Samuel Hall looks at good practices, challenges and opportunities. The objective is to have a better understanding of the current landscape in order to improve coordination and to inform a learning and capacity development agenda across stakeholders.
Good practices, challenges and opportunities in the search of durable solutions
The objective of this research is to assess the opportunities posed by the political process for potential solutions in Kenya’s key refugee-hosting counties of Turkana and Garissa. It firstly analyses opportunities presented by devolution which can contribute to the increased self-reliance of refugees. Secondly it focuses on the architecture of devolution in relation to refugee affairs, through the provision of a manual which analyses the legal framework, institutional structures, actors and processes of devolution.
Window of opportunity: There has never been a more opportune time to promote education for Somali refugee children and youth. First, the situation of Somali refugees and displaced persons in East Africa in 2015 presents major political, social, and economic risks for refugees, origin and host countries, while compromising Somalia's capacity to progressively rebuild its future.
It is the objective of this report to support the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) and its partners, primarily in the Regional Durable Solutions Secretariat (ReDSS) take stock of potential opportunities for promoting durable solutions for displaced people in the Somalia New Deal Compact by firstly identifying displacement in Somalia’s development discourse and secondly, assessing stakeholder engagement in the Compact. This presents a unique opportunity to emphasise the importance of displacement in development and stability frameworks.
New insight into IDP returns to inform durable solutions in Somalia
The UNHCR-led Somalia Return Consortium publishes its first review of support to IDP returns in Somalia. The report titled ‘Towards Durable Solutions – Achievements and challenges in supporting voluntary returns of IDPs in Somalia’ consolidates and analyses data gathered since 2012 when the Consortium initiated activities in support of people in displacement in Somalia.
