Migration and Displacement: Inclusion and Social Cohesion (Connecting Research, Data and Policy)
The diversity within the IGAD region, while a source of strength, also presents unique challenges that require innovative and context-specific policy solutions. The region is continuously grappling with multifaceted drivers of displacement and migration to seek safety and economic opportunities caused by conflicts and climate disasters. Moreover, the region hosts one of the world’s highest concentrations of forcibly displaced populations.
Equitable access to public basic services such as healthcare, education, water, employment and housing is a critical reflection of efficient policy implementation by governments. Moreover, vulnerable groups often find themselves at the center of polarised policy debates, leaving limited room for balanced and evidence-based assessment of the real challenges and opportunities they confront. With basic public services becoming increasingly scarce, governments, societies and stakeholders are compelled to strengthen their policies coupled with functional legal frameworks to foster social inclusivity and cohesion.
