The Social Cohesion and Displacement Toolkit provides users with guidance on how to strengthen democratic governance to manage forced displacement. Its main intended users are practitioners designing programs to help local communities deal with the challenges that forced migration poses. It will also be useful for policymakers grappling with this problem set who need additional information on its sources and options for resolving it.
The toolkit aims to build trust and cohesion between the government and host and displaced communities and to strengthen government responsiveness and accountability among all segments of society. This resource also outlines governance solutions to displacement by providing case studies and lessons learned on how to strengthen civic engagement, resolve conflicts, and raise awareness of human rights in a context affected by forced displacement.
