Scenario Description

Rural Settings


For millions of refugees and Internally Displaced People (IDPs), self-settlement constitutes the preferable alternative to [8096-Camps] (SCHMIDT 2003). Advantages for the displaced populations include the possibility to remain anonymous, as well as to create independent livelihoods (UNHCR 2015c). On the downside, IDPs and refugees outside of camps are often forced to revert to the poorest or most unfavourable areas and they often lack the legal documents that safeguard them from exploitation, arrest or detention (UNHCR 2015b).
