As an increased number of refugee crises become measured in years instead of months, programmatic focus has shifted from emergency response towards recovery and durable solutions. Refugees are highly vulnerable, highly mobile populations, and as a result, are often difficult to find and keep in touch with. But without long-term follow up, it is impossible to accurately measure migration trends and understand the effectiveness of programs aimed at improving refugee wellbeing over time.
CEGA Research Manager Sarah Stillman and Bailey Palmer, a UC Berkeley PhD Candidate, will present early findings from an innovative, representative panel of ~2,500 Syrian refugee households in Jordan. This panel provides detailed longitudinal data on refugees’ economic and physical well-being as well as social and behavioral outcomes. The session will be followed by a discussion of the research’s implications for programs and policies that serve refugees and host communities in Jordan and beyond.
