    Pin It

    BACKGROUND: The Women's Refugee Commission advocates vigorously for laws, policies and programs to improve the lives and protect the rights of refugee and displaced women, children and young people—bringing about lasting, measurable change.

    Our Vision
    A world in which refugee, internally displaced, returnee and asylum-seeking women, children and young people:

    • Are safe, healthy and self-reliant;
    • Participate in the decisions that affect their lives, both during displacement and when displacement ends; and
    • Are advocates and activists themselves, providing continuous monitoring of the policies and practices that affect them.


    Humanitarian agencies often engage in economic strengthening programming (skills training, microfinance, cash transfers, etc.) to help people recover from disaster.  Even when they are not the direct beneficiaries of this programming, children are affected in positive and negative ways.

    Women’s Refugee Commission is the convening agency of a global interagency Task Force on Livelihoods, Economic Strengthening and Child Protection, a sub-group of the Child Protection in Crisis (CPC) learning network.  The Task Force seeks to enhance the protection and well-being of conflict-affected children with sustainable livelihoods approaches and economic strengthening of households. The Task Force strives to improve the design, quality and effectiveness of economic programming targeting conflict-affected populations, both with adults, and in economic interventions for adolescents themselves.

    The placement student will support the Task Force in its mandate to collect the existing knowledge in this area of work, build the network of professionals to carry the field forward, and publish research, tools, and guidance.
