Report Coverage, “Refugees Work: A Humanitarian Investment That Yields Economic Dividends”
The Washington Post and The Guardian published stories covering the findings of a Tent research report entitled, “Refugees Work: A Humanitarian Investment that Yields Economic Dividends”. Published in partnership with the Open Political Economy Network, the research highlighted the economic benefits for countries that welcome and help integrate refugees.
The Washington Post’s Max Bearak pointed to the report’s key finding, that investing one euro in refugee assistance can yield nearly two euros in economic benefits within five years. Bearak noted, “The study argues that refugees can create returns by increasing demand for services and products, filling gaps in the workforce, and eventually paying taxes and creating new jobs themselves.”
