Rapid Protection Assessment: Bangladesh refugee crisis

By 11 October, an estimated 536,000 Rohingya refugees had fled from Myanmar to Bangladesh following targeted violence and human rights violations at the end of August. Between 9 and 11 September 2017, an assessment team consisting of protection staff from CODEC, Save the Children, TAI, and UNHCR undertook 16 focus group discussions (FGD) with newly arrived refugees. The main objective of this very rapid protection assessment is to capture the perspectives of those newly arrived on main concerns on their way to and within specific sites, and identify initial recommendations on how to address these concerns. The results will inform protection programming and future data collection initiatives.

Based on the findings in the assessment, the authors subscribe specific recommendations for program and advocacy in Bangladesh, which are detailed within the report.
