Twitter chat: the risks and rewards for women in humanitarian aid

19. August 2019 - 0:00

Aid work can be thrilling and rewarding but it can also be a frustrating and dangerous line of work. Conditions are tough, trauma is pervasive and it can be a struggle to maintain a personal life.

From tackling issues of safeguarding, pay gaps, operating in traditionally male-dominated societies and dealing with cultural perceptions in response, life for female humanitarians can be challenging.

On World Humanitarian Day we discuss these issues with perspectives from a range of humanitarians around the world. Join the chat by following @hpg_odi and using the hashtag #WHD2019

Public and political narratives on refugees and other migrants: implications for action

31. Juli 2019 - 0:00

This two-year project aims to support public and private funders and investors interested in working with refugees and other migrants. It has two main objectives:

  • To ensure that funders and investors have an accurate understanding of the nature and key features of public attitudes and narratives on migration in the contexts where they operate
  • To help them devise effective strategies and actions that take into account and engage with these attitudes and narratives in ways that benefit refugees and other migrants, and host communities. 

The overall aim is to encourage and support the proactive engagement of funders and investors in the politically challenging but manageable reality of global human mobility.

Through a series of activities, dialogues and innovative communication and outreach initiatives, the project will map recent research and evidence on public attitudes to refugees and other migrants in the UK, Germany, Sweden and the US, alongside detailed field research in Kenya and Uganda. We will explore how public attitudes are shaped in these countries, and identify opportunities and entry points for engagement by businesses and bilateral and multilateral agencies in ways that can effectively support refugees and other migrants closer to their countries of origin. The project will provide concrete examples of solutions and realistic measures to better manage global migration and displacement in different regions, and areas for collaboration and mutual learning.

This project is funded by the IKEA Foundaton.
