Conflict-sensitive work with refugees
Trainer: Ruxandra Tanase
Working with refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) fleeing from conflict regions presents many challenges. Beside the need for humanitarian support, various aspects of the initial conflict must be taken into account, along with their psychological well-being. The distribution of resources often gives rise to new conflicts, either with the host community, or between the refugees and IDPs themselves. As such, this work requires a conflict-sensitive approach that includes components of civil conflict resolution. In our seminar, you will be familiarised with the terminology of conflict-sensitive refugee and IDP work. You will use examples and case studies to practise implementation. Among others, the psychosocial dimensions of this work will be addressed.
— Terminology: refugees, migrants, asylum seekers, returnees, internally displaced persons (IDPs), etc.
— Conflict sensitivity and «Do No Harm» in refugee and IDP-related conflict and need assesments, humanitarian assistance, transitional aid, development or integration projects and in peace work (models for the analysis of risks and undesired consequences)
— Refugee and IDP-related conflict-sensitive Project Cycle Management
— Psychosocial dimensions and trauma sensitivity in the work with conflict-related desplaced people
— The significance of the initial conflicts, which led to displacement as well as the role of emerging conflicts in the host countries
There will be a trial session on 26 April 2018 to avoid technical issues during the live sessions.
Please register to this seminar by 15 April 2018.
