Durable Solutions in Migration
Women, men, girls and boys who are forced to leave their home have to adjust to a new environment, find ways to earn their living while trying to stay healthy and safe. They have the universal right to a durable solution, be it through return, resettlement or local integration. According to the IASC Framework on Durable Solutions, ‘a durable solution is achieved when people who were internally displaced (as well as forcibly displaced persons in general) no longer have any specific assistance and protection needs and can enjoy their human rights without discrimination on account of their displacement status’.
On this page, we get insights from different actors on ways to support efforts towards Durable Solutions, get access to resources and tools and hear country-specific experiences.
Private Sector Engagement in Migration
Private sector actors play an increasingly important role in addressing migration related challenges and in harnessing the benefits of migration. They act as service providers, as employers and job creators for migrants and forcibly displaced persons, support governments in governing migration and have important leverage in influencing migration-related policies. This newsletter provides an overview of how private sector actors can engage in different stages of the migration cycle and what needs to be considered to foster meaningful and functioning partnerships with business.
This page presents concrete private sector initiatives and collaborations in the field of fair and ethical recruitment as well as skills development creating win-win situations for migrants and the private sector.
Gender & Migration
The issue of Gender and Migration has recently received increased attention by the global community working on migration and forced displacement.
To provide the interested reader with a starting point for further research as well as an overview over the existing resources, the Newsletter comes with a reference to a Gender Dossier on the shareweb. The Gender Dossier provides links to policy papers, tools, studies and platforms, as well as links to contributions by members of the SDC Network on Migration.
Covid-19 & Migration
The COVID-19 pandemic spreads at an alarming pace across the globe affecting all of us. Migrants and people on the move face the same health threats from COVID-19 as host populations but may have particular vulnerabilities due to the circumstances of their journey. At the same time, migrants and refugees are essential to public health and to provide other critical services and goods in this crisis risking their own health and lives. The impact of the COVID-19 crisis on migrants and displaced populations wears many faces.
The information on this page is regularly updated based on the evolving COVID-19 situation. The content expressed in the links, do not reflect the views of SDC.
