Abstract

This foundational report is one of the first thorough examinations of the challenges that face refugees with disabilities, and the unique capacities that they have to overcome these challenges. 

Based on field research in five refugee situations, as well as global desk research, the report maps existing services for displaced persons with disabilities, identifies gaps and good practices and makes recommendations on how to improve services, protection and participation for displaced persons with disabilities. It also includes a Resource Kit geared toward UN and nongovernmental organization (NGO) field staff working with displaced persons with disabilities.
