Call for Papers – Impacts of Refugees and IDP’s on Host Countries and Host Communities

Deadline: December 11, 2016 Please submit abstracts of around 500 words (pdf files) to Kirsten Schuettler (

We welcome submission of empirical papers that provide evidence of impacts of refugees and IDPs on their host communities and host countries in specific situations. This includes, but is not limited to impacts on:

labor markets, trade and entrepreneurship,
public revenue and expenditure,
welfare and poverty,
crime and national security, and
social cohesion among others.

Papers can look at impacts on the national or local level and cover different scenarios (urban or rural settings as well as encampment (closed or open), settlement or cohabitation). Papers that discuss the possible generalization of the results, and include policy recommendations based on the evidence presented in the paper are encouraged.
