Applying Behavioral Economics Insights to the Design of Savings Products was presented on the Financial Services and Capabilities track at the 2012 Global Youth Economic Opportunities Conference.

Report Release: Young and Restless: Harnessing the Economic Resilience of Displaced Youth in Nairobi

Women's Refugee Commission

The Women's Refugee Commission is pleased to share our latest report on urban refugee youth, Young and Restless: Harnessing the Economic Resilience of Displaced Youth in Nairobi. This is the second in a series assessing access to education and employment among displaced young people in urban areas.

Young and Restless: Harnessing the Economic Resilience of Displaced Youth in Nairobi

Women's Refugee Commission

Young men and women displaced in Nairobi, Kenya, face many barriers to earning an income. Urban violence, police harassment, restricted access to formal markets, disrupted education and a lack of safe spaces in the community are among the main barriers to attending school and training programs. Refugee youth report that education and training, as well as personal security, are their highest priorities. Young people appear to have little knowledge of their rights, of refugee laws and policies or of the few programs that exist to assist them.
