The Urban Displaced with Dr. Catherine-Lune Grayson

In this episode of Intercross the Podcast, we sit down with Dr. Catherine-Lune Grayson, ICRC Policy Advisor. Globally, around 40 million people have fled their homes from conflict or persecution as internally displaced persons. About 60%–80% of those live in urban areas. The “urban story” of forced displacement is often compounded by its hidden nature. It is more difficult to track the living conditions of those displaced in urban areas, obtain precise numbers, and provide humanitarian assistance. We discuss the challenges of working in urban contexts, camp vs. non-camp solutions and retaining dignity when identity is lost. Hosted by Austin Shangraw.
