HIJRA AMINA consolidates policy orientated migration research in Iraq
From the 23rd-26th of November HIJRA AMINA brought together institutions and organisations with migration management functions with the aim of informing migration policy development. The training covered specialized research and data collection methods tailored to the current migration context of Iraq.
Participants from the Government of Iraq (GoI), Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and civil society actors worked together to identify methods for conducting research aimed at assessing the priority needs of refugees and IDPs in camps and informal settlements. The session created a platform for the development of partnerships and synergies between representatives from the two governments and civil society organizations (CSOs), allowing them the opportunity to share knowledge and practical experience.
