We are delighted to announce that Laura Jeffery, Lucy Lowe and Jean-Benoit Falisse have been successful in getting a £3 million grant from the ESRC.

In collaboration with colleagues at QMU and ARQ International and in Somalia, DRC, Kenya, and South Africa, they have been awarded a 3-year £3m Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) grant under the ESRC Development-based approaches to Protracted Displacement funding stream. This project aims to improve healthcare at the intersection of gender and protracted displacement amongst Somali and Congolese refugees and IDPs in eight field sites in Somalia, Eastern DRC, Nairobi, and Johannesburg.
