19 Aug 2020

The Center for Peace and Justice (CPJ) of Brac University and the Asia Foundation published a report titled: ‘Navigating the Margins: Family, Mobility and Livelihoods Amongst Rohingya in Bangladesh.’. This report described the ways that individuals and families living in refugee camps in Bangladesh cope with hardship and life in displacement. It presented new information on family separation as both an additional source of hardship and support through which remittances sometimes flow. It also described how it is often a risky but hopeful investment in a better future for those who manage to reach a third country beyond Myanmar and Bangladesh. The study also looked at economic hardship and the coping strategies of refugee households, presented new evidence on the cost of living in the camps, income sources and indebtedness, remittances, and the equivocal role of dowry payments. It included data on the gendered implications of displacement, mobility, and economic hardship.
