Abstract

Bangladesh has been hosting nearly a million Rohingyas for the past five years. Since the 1980s, to escape widespread persecution and conflict, Rohingyas have been crossing the border from Myanmar into Bangladesh. Rohingyas are not entitled to, or integrated into, any long-term development agendas of the Bangladesh government. They do not have freedom of movement and permission to work, but they are engaged in some informal income-generating activities in Cox’s Bazar. This study was intended to assess the livelihood and work opportunities, challenges, aspirations, needs, and preferences of young Rohingya populations living in the camps in the Cox’s Bazar district of Bangladesh. This is a needs assessment study, and hence there was no intervention. The study consisted of an assessment of economic opportunities of young Rohingyas living in the camps, and a review of global refugee integration programs, followed by policy advocacy. This report presents the findings from our primary research on economic opportunities for Rohingyas.
