Refugee Policy Review Framework : Technical Note (English)

Over the recent years, the World Bank Group (WBG) has scaled up its efforts to support refugees and refugee-hosting communities through International Development Association (IDA)18 sub-window for refugees and host communities (RSW) and the IDA19 window for host communities and refugees (WHR). The WBG’s support aims to complement humanitarian interventions by focusing on the medium-term socioeconomic dimensions of displacement for both refugees and their hosts. The WBG committed that by the IDA19 mid-term review, IDA conduct a systematic review of refugee policy and institutional environments in countries eligible for the WHR since their initial eligibility. This technical note aims to present such a methodology: the refugee policy review framework (RPRF). It is articulated around three critical elements: (1) which specific policies will be the focus of the review; (2) how the corresponding information will be collected and vetted for quality; and (3) how the results of the review will be presented and reported on.
