The migration research project addresses the need for effective strategies for the attention and inclusion of distinctively Vulnerable Groups (VGs) among Forcibly Displaced People (FDP).
Its overall objective is to identify these groups, their specific challenges and needs, to be able to discover and provide Tailored Attention and Inclusion Strategies (TAISs) for them. Specific objectives:
- Definition and identification of Vulnerability Contexts (VCs) in transit and host countries.
- Identification of attention and inclusion practices for Vulnerable Groups among the FDP.
- Identification of key criteria to evaluate strategies and practices for attention and inclusion of VGs of FDP.
- Mapping among VCs and practices according to evaluation criteria to define TAISs.
- Elaboration of recommendations to develop attention and inclusion strategies tailored to VCs.
- Validation of TAISs and their methodology through pilots.
- Development of CRIOS and creation of the Observatory for TAISs in FDs.
- Development of methodological framework for research activities
- Local Action Research Units (ARUs) explore the potential conflict and intrinsic difficulties of addressing both the local demands of society on the issues of FDP inclusion, and the local and global demands to contribute to a more equitable and sustainable society
- Co-creation of research activities where all relevant stakeholders play an active role in its definition, execution and evaluation (RRI approach) by undertaking advocacy-focused participatory action-research, grounded in human rights and socio-ecological models
- Application of quantitative and qualitative methods from Social and Computer Sciences (data mining, automated learning and sentiment analysis) reducing unintended biases in the interpretation of data and aids researchers to discover unforeseen patterns to help create and tests hypotheses
- Public and local engagement initiatives to provide key attention to gender parity issues and Vulnerable Groups
