Designing a Work Rights Program

This section will help practitioners understand how to use the information obtained during the needs and landscape analysis to design a successful refugee work rights program. Depending on the identified needs and landscape, a specific program or a certain combination of programs may be preferable to another.

For example, where there is no legal framework in place for refugee work rights, programs such as community empowerment and policy advocacy are most effective, whereas relationship building between the private sector and the refugee work force would be premature and thus inefficient. By contrast, where the legal framework provides refugees with the possibility to access lawful employment, a combination of individualized legal assistance in combination with relationship building with the private sector is more effective

The section will also provide practical tips in developing a program plan. This includes setting program goals, assessing capacity, allocating resources, and developing a monitoring and evaluation plan for your program.
