Place and Displacement: un mercato per i rifugiati di Giordania, Kenya e Germania

concorso di idee

consegna entro l'1 febbraio 2017

International Development in Action indice il concorso internazionale Place and Displacement, indirizzato alle menti innovative di tutto il mondo per la progettazione di un mercato a servizio delle persone che vivono negli insediamenti di rifugiati in Giordania (Zaatari), Kenya (Kakuma) e Germania (Berlino).

L'obiettivo della competizione, alla luce dell'ondata di profughi che sta interessando sempre più Paesi nel mondo, è quello di proporre una soluzione che permetta ai rifugiati di riacquisire la propria dignità e di riprendere ad esercitare l'attività imprenditoriale. Il mercato dovrà avere un assetto informale ed essere pensato in modo particolare per le donne, per gli adolescenti e per le categorie più vulnerabili. 

L'attività dovrà essere pensata per il lungo termine, ovvero almeno per 3 - 5 anni, portando vantaggio al maggior numero possibile di persone che, ad oggi, contano soltanto sugli aiuti umanitari. Il mercato dovrà diventare l'incarnazione della dignità e della resilienza che rispetta l'autonomia, la creatività e la capacità di ogni rifugiato. I profughi saranno in grado di riconnettersi con il mondo e di pensare a un futuro che vada oltre gli insediamenti transitori.

We challenge the innovative minds around the globe to design a marketplace with an operational plan that enables people living in one of the refugee settlements settlements in Jordan (Zaatari), Kenya (Kakuma), Germany (Berlin) to reassert their dignity by being able to exercise their entrepreneurial creativity and skills through an informal marketplace, to benefit in particular women, adolescents and the most vulnerable. The marketplace should be able to run for long-term, i.e. 3-5 years, and benefit as many people as possible.

In light of the current surge of refugees in the international arena, refugee livelihoods in transitional settlements have become a crucial topic in contemporary geopolitical relations.

Most inhabitants in refugee settlements rely on humanitarian aid and cannot fully exercise their agency and skillsets. A marketplace can become an embodiment of dignity and resilience that respects refugee inhabitants' autonomy, creativity and capability. Through trading activities, refugee inhabitants can connect with the world and a future beyond transient settlements.
