There is a significant number of international agencies present on the ground in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, delivering humanitarian services and engaging in protection-related activities with Rohingya communities living in the camps.

To date, there has been minimal effort to build the capacity of displaced Rohingya so that they have adequate legal literacy to understand and articulate challenges they are facing in terms of rights, justice and protection. Training youth in basic research skills is also not on the international community’s radar; this hampers the ability of young Rohingya to identify and communicate their own and their fellow camp residents’ needs to camp service providers and to the wider donor community.

The Rohingya Youth Action Research Project seeks to remedy this problem, training and supporting locally-based research teams in Cox’s Bazar to produce research on community needs during the Covid-19 pandemic.
