The Financial Journeys of Displaced People

This site features the long-distance journeys of dispossessed people, refugees and migrants who have traveled far to escape persecution and grinding poverty. We examine their stories though a financial lens to better understand the costs and strategies involved in their journeys as well as the economic approaches they use to put down roots in a new place.


On Long-Distance Journeys

The materials found here explore the costs and strategies of refugees and migrants as they move. We reference the ways in which they amass funds, plan their routes, and mobilize money along the way. During our inquiry other important aspects of their journeys surface: changing identities, shifting social networks, varied power hierarchies, and access to crucial humanitarian and financial services.

On Putting Down Roots

The materials found here explore the costs and strategies of refugees and migrants as they financial cope and settle in their new locale, whether or not that locale was meant to be temporary or final.  We document the ways in which they pursue avenues of work, engage diaspora networks, and manage formal and informal financial services.
