One of the main aims of the Refugee Hosts research project has been ‘to reframe debates about the roles and experiences of local communities and refugees in contexts of conflict-induced displacement.’ Drawing on over 450 interviews and a series of participatory research workshops with local community members and refugees, Refugee Hosts’ team members have published widely, with many publications available Open Access and free to download.

In addition to the blogs published as part of our ‘community of conversation’ on the Refugee Hosts website, you can read key publications relating to the Refugee Hosts project here:
