Building bridges between international humanitarian and development responses to forced migration
Forced migration has increased enormously worldwide, and a pressing political debate has emerged on how to deal effectively with underlying crises. Until a few years ago, climate change was considered the future main driver of forces migration. Today, violent conflict has taken its place in the public limelight, mainly due to the crises in Syria. This crises entered the European public arena only when a significant number of refugees started to reach Europe.
A literture review has been done, to answer how humanitarian and development responses to forced migration crises can be linked effectively. It does so by addressing two sub-questions:
- What is needed to effectively link humanitarian and development responses to forced migration crises?
- To what extent, and why (or why not), are effective linkages established in practice?
