Displacement is an increasing concern in many parts of the world. This policy brief summarises the findings of a long-term research effort made to address the role of built environment in displacement contexts. The underpinning study was carried out in Estonia, Sri Lanka, Sweden and the United Kingdom (UK). In the context of increasing displacement, the role of built environment in addressing its associated challenges are explored. Specific issues include living in poor environments, camp management, host families, livelihood opportunities, social cohesion, coping capacity of the displaced, protracted displacement, cultural diversity and inclusive societies. Recommendations are presented in addressing these challenges from the perspective of built environment interventions and developing the competencies of related professionals.
