There is a global displacement crisis. Around the world more people are displaced than at any time since the Second World War, and there are around 20 million refugees. Yet alongside this trend of rising numbers, governments’ political willingness to provide access to protection and assistance is in decline. In the face of these challenges, the existing global refugee regime is not fit for purpose. It tends to view refugees and displacement as a uniquely humanitarian issue.
• Innovation is playing an increasingly transformative role across the humanitarian system. International organisations, NGOs, governments, business, military, and community-based organisations are drawing upon the language and methods of innovation to address the challenges and opportunities of a changing world.
Two decades after the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, tens of thousands of refugees remain in exile in Uganda. Since October 2002, the governments of Rwanda and Uganda, and UNHCR have been playing an active role in promoting the voluntary repatriation of Rwandan refugees. However, despite these attempts to return the post-genocide Rwandan refugees to their ‘homeland’, considerable numbers are reluctant to return.
‘Networked, online and trading’: Yes, we’re talking about refugees, says study

Humanitarian agencies are not strangers to new technologies. Typically customers rather than creators of technological solutions, humanitarian agencies are well-known for their purchase and distribution of items such as the nutritional supplement Plumpy’Nut, and water filtration products like the Lifesaver Cube.

Background of the Humanitarian Innovation Project This working paper is drawn from the seven-week mission in Uganda as a preliminary study of the Humanitarian Innovation Project (HIP) based at the Refugee Studies Centre at the University of Oxford. HIP seeks to research the role of technology, innovation and the private sector in refugee assistance.

- The Congo context: the causes of persistent conflict
The DRC has a long and tragic history of plunder, predation and pillaging, first under Belgian colonial rule and then under President Mobutu. The country’s recent history is one of intractable armed conflict, poor governance, pervasive poverty, and massive humanitarian suffering, including widespread human rights violations and large-scale population displacement.
International workshop 22 September 2010
Although faith communities and faith-based organisations (FBOs) are often at the forefront of humanitarian responses to people affected by conflict, crisis and forced migration across the globe, little is known about the scale, nature and impacts of their interventions. This international workshop brought together scholars, practitioners and forced migrants from different faith perspectives and diverse disciplinary backgrounds to explore the motivations and practices of faith communities and FBOs in their response to …
