NEW DEMAC REPORT: “Creating Opportunities To Work With Diasporas In Humanitarian Settings”
While the contribution of diasporas to development has been widely researched, their input into the humanitarian sphere remains underexplored. This study reviews the work of six Diaspora organisations (DOs) in Syria and Somalia, when emergency and early recovery responses are needed as a result of droughts, terror attacks or active conflict. It provides a critical analysis and a case study approach to advance the understanding of Diaspora organisations’ contributions in humanitarian settings.
Recommendations for the Global Compact on Refugees
DEMAC, Danish Refugee Council Diaspora Programme and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH (Sector Project Forced Displacement, on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, BMZ) submitted joint recommendations for the Global Compact on Refugees’ Programme of Action, bringing together perspectives from a humanitarian and a development point of view.
