The Consequences of COVID-19 on Forcibly Displaced People: A Primer on Research Activities
The Joint Data Center on Forced Displacement (JDC) recognizes the importance of facilitating the exchange of knowledge on these topics among researchers and practitioners. Therefore, the Center has decided to devote a space for an open and informed discussion on aspects such as research questions, methods, sources of data, analytical techniques, and policy implications of the research findings in the wake of the current pandemic. To this aim, the JDC has solicited the submission of project descriptions by the researchers within its network. This document, which we have called a “Primer on Research Activities”, summarizes some of these contributions and offers a first overview of these projects, their aims, and their (expected) outputs.
