Kinship Care: Syrian Refugee Children in Jordan

2015

In collaboration with Save the Children International, the IRCKHF conducted a study on Kinship Care for Syrian Refugees in Jordan. The aim of the study was to increase the understanding of kinship care practices experienced by Syrian refugee children and caregivers which can be used to inform programming and policy. The research was primarily exploratory, qualitative and participatory. In addition to a desk review of existing laws and data on kinship care in Jordan and the Middle East, the methodology included interviews with policy makers and practitioners addressing kinship care, focus group discussions with case managers, and participatory research including child friendly participatory tools with children and caregivers from Amman and Zaatari Camp.
