Measuring Self-Reliance among Refugee and Internally Displaced Households: The Development of an Index in Humanitarian Settings

In Conflict and Health, Women’s Refugee Commission consultants Ilana Seff, Kellie Leeson, and Lindsay Stark co-wrote a paper on measuring self-reliance among refugee and internally displaced households.

This paper presents the methodology employed in a soft launch of the Self-Reliance Index conducted between September and December 2019, results around internal consistency and scoring validity, and offers a practical approach for developing a culturally relevant and robust tool for humanitarian settings.
