From Displacement to development: How Ethiopia can create shared growth by facilitating economic inclusion for refugees

The paper analyses the gaps in economic outcomes between refugees and hosts, and illustrates how far refugees are from achieving economic inclusion


This case study is part of the “Let Them Work” initiative, a three-year program of work led by the Center for Global Development (CGD) and Refugees International and funded by the IKEA Foundation and the Western Union Foundation. The initiative aims to expand labor market access for refugees and forced migrants by identifying their barriers to economic inclusion and providing recommendations to host governments, donors, and the private sector for how to overcome them. The primary focus is on refugees and forced migrants in Colombia, Peru, Kenya, and Ethiopia, with other work taking place at the global level.
