The Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) supports humanitarian research in order to: (1) promote evidence-based decision making on priority protection, assistance, and durable solution challenges; (2) enhance knowledge and develop guidance and tools to improve the performance of the Bureau and its partners; and (3) disseminate and encourage the use of research findings and recommendations, guidance and tools by other humanitarian stakeholders. Research is instrumental in helping the Bureau and its partners adapt programs and policy engagement to emerging challenges and priorities, including through the development of tools, operational guidance, and best practices. Applying the knowledge and tools gained through research contributes to sound stewardship resources.
