Refugees are good for the local economy

Around the world, refugees are often seen as being a burden to the communities hosting them. But some economists, like the World Bank’s Apurva Sanghi have studied the real economies of refugee environments, including in Kakuma. The results may surprise you. Apurva Sanghi is the World Bank's former lead economist for four countries in East Africa. He spearheaded a ground-breaking study. "Yes" in My Backyard? The Economics of Refugees and Their Social Dynamics in Kakuma, Kenya. This study has also been instrumental in the planning and implementing of the new Kalobeyei settlement for refugees and their host community. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
