Access to Durable Solutions Among IDPs in Iraq

Publications

The mixed-method and longitudinal nature of the study allow for multi-layered data analysis across many themes. A yearly report summarizes the longitudinal data related to eight criteria of durable solutions to displacement: 1. Safety and Security, 2. Standard of Living, 3. Livelihood and Employment, 4. Housing, Land and Property, 5. Documentation, 6. Family Separation and Reunification, 7. Participation in Public Affairs, and 8. Access to Justice. Thematic publications explore the experiences of smaller subsets of IDPs such as female-headed households, “movers,” and families who have applied to compensation. Finally, several presentations of the relevant findings of this study are made available for download. The publications and presentations resulting from the study follow.
