Over the last year, the Refugee Hub  Study researchers worked to synthesise and analyse evidence about the roles played by Local Faith Communities (LFCs) in supporting protracted urban refugees and internally displaced persons across the globe, particularly focusing on the global South.

Join to discuss the study on the roles and impact of LFCs in relation to urban refugees, especially in the context of urbanisation and localisation. Researchers conducted a literature review, and were assisted by JLI Refugee Hub members to identify and conduct case studies and interviews.
