The Durable Solutions Platform (DSP), together with DSP’s partner agency offices in Brussels, held a virtual presentation and roundtable discussion of their recent research. The event was focused on connecting research findings and recommendations to Brussels-based stakeholders working on issues related to displacement in the Syria context. The event brought together more than 40 stakeholders in Brussels as well as throughout Europe and the Middle East region. It was held virtually due to social distancing restrictions related to COVID-19.

The event was broken into two sessions, the first of which addressed DSP’s recent reports from Lebanon and Jordan:

  • Addressing Protracted Displacement in Lebanon: A Medium-Term Outlook for Refugees and Lebanese Host Communities
  • In My Own Hands: A Medium-Term Approach Towards Self-Reliance and Resilience of Refugees and Host Communities in Jordan

The second session focused on DSP’s recent report on resettlement:

  • The Strategic Use of Resettlement: Lessons from the Syria Context

Conducted under Chatham House Rules, the sessions presented DSP research and were followed by discussions that contextualized the research within current contexts including COVID-19, the Lebanese economic crisis, and current resettlement issues in Europe and beyond.
