Analysis of Return Migrant Reintegration in Ethiopia

NORWEGIAN REFUGEE COUNCIL, ETHIOPIA

Meraki Labs was commissioned to conduct primary research to support the Norwegian Refugee Council to analyse the gap in the governmental, private sectors and humanitarian response to return migrant needs in Ethiopia. This included a review of policy frameworks, existing literature on root causes of migration and existing programming, as well as a stakeholder analysis at different levels.

In additional to a literature review and a legal and policy analysis, Meraki Labs conducted 104 interviews with returnees, families of returnees, and government officials in Oromia, Amhara, and Addis Ababa Regions of Ethiopia as well as 20 additional interviews with migrants in Saudi Arabia, Sudan, and Djibouti. The findings report was aimed at providing detailed and realistic recommendations for protection, livelihoods, and education programming.

TERRE DES HOMME, DJIBOUTI

Approximately 70,000 migrants pass through Djibouti on the road from the Horn of Africa to Gulf countries. Most are youth; many have limited education and limited opportunities to engage with their local communities.

Meraki Labs supported Terre des Hommes and IOM in establishing a digital fabrication laboratory in Djiboutiville, ensuring that young migrants engaged with the lab, and ensuring that young migrants gained digital skills through the intervention.
