Geneva, 29 October 2009 - "Protection, mobility and livelihood challenges of displaced Iraqis in urban settings in Jordan" was prepared by ICMC with the support of the Swiss Department of Foreign Affairs.

It examines the motivations, current context and effects of both the Iraqi displacement and this conspicuous urban preference, framing central issues and approaches to assistance and protection for the Iraqis during their displacement and beyond. It concludes that short-term humanitarian approaches focussed on relief, are, by nature, insufficient for addressing the long-term challenges.
