Sponsorship in the Context of Complementary Pathways

Complementary pathways are mobility options that are additional to the traditional solutions for people living in refugee or refugee-like circumstances, such as voluntary repatriation, resettlement in another country, or integration into a host community. International interest in complementary pathways has grown in the last decade, given the need for new solutions to respond to the increasing displacement of people around the world.

A new knowledge brief,  authored by Michelle Manks, Senior Manager for Durable Solutions at WUSC, as well as Mehrangiz Monsef and Dana Wagner, looks at sponsorship in the context of complementary pathways. It aims to understand the evidence base and identify gaps and research directions that can advance the development of global, accessible, scalable, and community-supported complementary pathways, such as family reunification and humanitarian admission pathways.

This brief is part of a series produced by the University of Ottawa Refugee Hub intended to briefly summarize the global state of knowledge on topics related to community-based refugee sponsorship.
