ABSTRACT
The article looks at the economic and development benefits that refugees can bring to host countries. It discusses the study "Guidelines for Assessing the Impacts and Costs of Forced Displacement," by the Refugee Studies Centre in Oxford, England, which looks at the economic consequences of humanitarian assistance to forced migrants. It briefly outlines three stages of the study such as impact analysis, identifying parameters to measure impacts, and creating an economic profile to assess the effect of forced displacement.
