The project will consist of a mixed method in-depth case study of refugee initiatives, governance and assistance in selected cities in Lebanon. Whereas refugees would until recently only be recognized when they resided in camps, Syrian refugees have massively opted to self-settle in cities. In Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey, 90% of the refugees live outside the camps. The question is how bottom-up innovations of refugees with self-help groups, informal settlements and entrepreneurial activities affect refugee governance, refugee care, and the relation with the host-population?
