Research summary

Title: Creating sustainable livelihood and entrepreneurship opportunities through skills development for refugees in urban neighbourhoods

The purpose of this research is to investigate various factors that affect the perception, engagement and participation of refugees in the skills and vocational training; and whether and how the available learning and skills acquisition programmes lead to further opportunities of sustainable livelihood and entrepreneurship.

The research will make policy recommendations, propose practical interventions and create suggestions for further research. The research will be of considerable interest to policymakers, adult educators, community organisations, and related practitioners especially in the context of learning cities and reducing inequalities in lifelong learning and education. The benefits of this research include providing evidence-based policy recommendations to make the vocational and skills training programmes more useful and connected to the livelihood of urban refugees.
