In 2010-11 the US State Department’s Bureau o Population, Reugees andMigration unded research by the Feinstein Center (Tuts University) to develop aproling methodology or urban migrants and reugees. The purpose o themethodology was to capture a range o livelihood, integration and vulnerabilitydata in urban settings, so as to compare the experiences o reugees and other migrant and non-migrant groups living in the same urban districts. As part o developing the methodology, we conducted case studies in three urban settings inkey host countries. In each country we collaborated with the ollowing localpartners:
Witwatersrand, Johannesburg
The research built on earlier studies by the principal investigator (Karen Jacobsen)and our partners, and sought to make the mixed methodology easily utilizable byoperational agencies.Our nal report is presented in the ollowing sections:
1. Introduction – the need or profling in urban setting
We describe why proling is important or reugee (or other humanitariangroups such as IDPs) programming.
2. Conceptual ramework
We outline the theory underpinning our proling approach. We explain howwe distinguish reugees rom other migrants and residents, the link betweenlivelihood security and vulnerability, and the constructs and key indicators weused to measure dierent kinds o livelihood security. We propose a modelthat explains the causes o livelihood security.
3. Summary o fndings and recommendations
We summarize our research ndings and include two types o recommendations: good proling practices (or use by donors when reviewingproposals), and programming recommendations that could be acted upon byimplementing agencies.
4. Research methodology
We describe our survey methodology, qualitative methods and mapping tools,and how they evolved and were revised over the course o our study.Separate rom this nal report, are the
three case studies
describes how we adapted the methodology to make it contextually relevant,presents our ndings, and provides specic programming recommendations. Thesurvey questionnaire utilized or each site (including translation) is included as anannex to each case. The datasets or each o the three cities are available or use byother researchers upon request.
