Plan and Relief International are implementing a project funded by the eU to support education for displaced people and host communities in Gambella, ethiopia and Puntland, South Sudan. Meraki Labs conducted a midline evaluation for partners, comprising a review of performance against Oecd DAC critera, as well as a review of the research component implemented by the University of Sussex and local research partners. Qualitative data was collected and analysed; quantitative data provided by University of Sussex was cleaned and analysed for correlation. The project provided concrete suggestions for improving outcomes, notably around beneficiary feedback and accountability as well as gender and inclusion of marginalised groups.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Determining the ‘tipping points’ for Would-be Migrant Decision-making in Ethiopia

Determining the ‘tipping points’ for Would-be Migrant Decision-making in Ethiopia

MIXED MIGRATION CENTRE, ETHIOPIA

The Ethiopia Migration Programme (EMP) is a GBP 21 million programme, funded by the UK Department for International Development (DfID), aiming to enhance the protective environment for migrants and would-be migrants whilst reducing unsafe irregular migration through and from Ethiopia.


Meraki Labs designed and produced a research report based on large scale quantitative surveys, focus groups, and in-depth interviews with Ethiopian, Somali, and Eritrean young people considering (re)migration. The study questionned the existence of ‘tipping points’ in migration decision making processes, including if and the extent to which commonly understood ‘migration drivers’ function in communities.
