On refugee self-reliance

15 December 2021


A central concern in debates around refugee integration is that of labour market integration. But how do displaced people create livelihoods for themselves and become self-reliant?

For this episode we invited Evan Easton-Calabria to discuss the meaning of refugee self-reliance, how assistance practices have changed over time, and the important yet often overlooked role of refugee-led organisations in providing training and labour market orientation.

Evan Easton-Calabria is Senior Research Officer at the University of Oxford, Refugee Studies Center.
