Religion can, has, and does play a key role in motivating and framing diverse forms of support for refugees and asylum-seekers around the world.

This report draws on over 300 in-depth interviews conducted with refugees, members of local host communities and locally-based organisations in towns, cities and camps in Cameroon, Greece, Malaysia, Mexico, Lebanon and Jordan to examine the roles that members of local faith communities, faith leaders and faith-based organisations can play in promoting social justice for refugees.This includes a particular focus on the roles played by individuals and communities who have themselves experienced displacement.
