Women's Refugee Commission

Displaced youth have historically fallen through the cracks of humanitarian services and programming. Little guidance has existed to date on their needs to build skills for developing safe and dignified livelihoods, and to contribute to the recovery, peace and stability of their societies. This synthesis report of findings and recommendations provides guidance for humanitarian policy and practice on youth education and livelihoods. The Women’s Refugee Commission’s (WRC) Displaced Youth Initiative multiyear (2008–2011), multicountry advocacy research project aims to increase the scope, scale and effectiveness of education and livelihoods development programs for conflict affected, displaced youth ages 15 to 24 who are out of school.
