Digital Leisure Divide and the Forcibly Displaced

(UNHCR funded 2021-2022)

This research project aims at understanding the role that digital leisure plays in the lives of refugees and others displaced to be leveraged in future humanitarian interventions. While there is some primary research on how refugees and others displaced engage with media platforms, digital networks, and online leisure content in diverse contexts, there is a need for a comprehensive synthesis of the empiricism of their multifaceted ‘media life’. This project seeks to address these gaps in research and practice in this area of focus and provide sustainable solutions for integration, the future of work, and well-being for displaced populations.
