Project Developing an Urban Refugee Integartion Scale, Refuge Point (2013 - Present)

Principal Investigator:

Refugees, traditionally confined to large camps, are increasingly dispersing into large urban centers in search of autonomy and better lives. As the urban refugee community grows, the often-neglected durable solution of local integration as a viable option for these refugees has re-emerged. But measuring local integration as a goal and/or proxy for stability and improved welfare has remained understudied. This project developed a scale to measure integration of urban refugees in Nairobi, Kenya among the local host population.
