Female employers are more likely to employ youth than male employers o What are the sectors with the highest prospects for women’s employment?

RETHINK Women, IDPs, returnees not to be lumped under “vulnerable” as the message from this research is to focus on agency Redefine what vulnerability is and what vulnerability criteria are Very practical steps: UNHCR has reviewed its vulnerability criteria to include young males/casual labor with partners on the Yemen crisis, to be assisted to return with onward transportation. This group is now being targeted, recent change Same with refugees from Kenya: how to better integrate them in return plans? See Samuel Hall’s report on spontaneous returns: youth are ready to return but then end up working for free in Kismayo, at least they have had a good education in Dadaab, but the situation doesn’t provide for income generation for them upon return. 2.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
