German Institute of Development and Sustainability (IDOS)

In an increasingly globalized world, displacement, migration, and (im)mobility are a socio-political phenomenon that countries must respond and adapt to. Displacement, both cross-border and internal, due to conflict, climate and environmental change, and economic shocks are part of global human mobility. These present unique challenges to social cohesion in communities hosting displaced people, particularly given how fraught the politics of displacement can be. Social cohesion is increasingly recognized as an important condition for the stability of societies, their ability to settle conflicts peacefully and the wellbeing of their members. The Social Cohesion in Displacement Contexts project by IDOS aimed to answer the question: How is social cohesion affected in different contexts of displacement where there is wide demographic, cultural, religious, and political diversity?  
This invitation-only workshop brought together experts from research, policy and civil society to identify conceptual, empirical and practical issues that should shape the future research and policy agenda on social cohesion in displacement contexts.
