In 2010-11 the US State Department’s Bureau o Population, Reugees and Migrationunded research by the Feinstein International Center to develop a profling methodologyor urban migrants and reugees. The purpose was to capture a range o livelihood,integration and vulnerability data in urban settings, so as to enable comparisons betweenreugees and other migrant and non-migrant groups living in the same districts. Theresearch built on earlier studies by the principal investigator (Karen Jacobsen) and our partners, and sought to make the profling approach easily utilizable by operationalagencies.As part o developing the methodology, we conducted case studies in three urban settingsin key host countries. We collaborated with the ollowing local partners:Aden, Yemen – INTERSOSPolokwane, South Arica – Arican Center or Migration Studies, University o Witwatersrand, JohannesburgMae Sot, Thailand – International Rescue CommitteeThe goals o the case studies were to test and adapt the profling methodology, and togather data that would contribute to urban livelihoods programming. Each case includes acontextual background on migration to the urban setting, our methods, fndings, andrecommendations.The overview report o our study, which includes an introduction to profling, our conceptual ramework, and the main programming recomendations, can be ound here:https://wikis.uit.tuts.edu/conuence/display/FIC/Feinstein+International+Center.The ull profling methodology, including the survey, mapping and qualitative approaches,and toolkit (including the modules or a two-day training workshop) can be ound here:https://wikis.uit.tuts.edu/conuence/display/FIC/Feinstein+International+Center.
