Livelihood Strategies of Internally Displaced Persons in Urban Eastern DRC
Strategieën van ontheemden in steden in Oost-Congo om hun bestaan op te bouwen
The main question addressed in this thesis was ‘How do IDPs cope with the challenges of displacement and sustain their livelihoods in cities?’
Within this broad question, the following specific questions guided the research:
• How has the ‘IDP’ label impacted humanitarian assistance in South Kivu?
• How do IDPs engage through networks and use them at key moments in their displacement trajectories in Bukavu?
• What challenges do IDP women face when entering markets in Bukavu?
• How do IDPs in Mugunga 3 camp differ in terms of their vulnerability, and how does this affect the meanings of the camp for IDP residents?
