For cities and countries reacting to the arrival of many refugees, building transportation systems that serve them can be difficult; refugee settlements have traditionally been assumed to be temporary, and sometimes exist outside the core of an urban area where traditional transportation networks are strongest. In spite of this, refugee communities, NGOs, and local non-profits have created informal transportation systems that promote personal agency and freedom of mobility.
This project will collect stories, interviews, and original research from around the world about programs and projects that support transportation for refugees. Additionally, the project will attempt to identify ways that NGOs and other service agencies can best support refugee communities in establishing transportation systems that suit their needs.
