Over the past two years, the Feinstein International Center has supported the Joint IDP Profiling Service (JIPS) to develop a Guidance for Profiling Urban Displacement Situations. The Guidance highlights the logistical, methodological and political challenges facing profiling exercises in urban settings, and suggests some solutions and best practices to overcome these challenges. The refugee and IDP profiling experience of both Feinstein and JIPS underpin the Guidance, and with UNHCR they jointly supported two case studies, in New Delhi and Quito.
