Disabilities among refugees and conflict-affected populations

The report “Disabilities among Refugees and Conflict-Affected Populations” is the culmination of a six-month project led by the Women’s Refugee Commission and co-funded by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). It is based on fact-finding missions in Ecuador, Yemen, Jordan, Thailand and Nepal (as well as significant field input from Darfur and Kenya), interviews with United Nations agencies and local organizations in refugee settings, and focus group discussions with refugees and others uprooted from their homes. The situation of Colombian, Somali, Iraqi, Burmese, Bhutanese and Sudanese populations was studied in refugee camps and urban environments, in both emergency and protracted situations, with a particular focus on women, children and adolescents
