Innovation in the Business Refugee Action Network (BRAN): Synthesis Report 2019 – 2020

Business-led innovation has been identified by the Business Refugee Action Network (BRAN) as one promising route to improving the economic wellbeing of refugees. To this end, a group of businesses in the network have implemented new approaches. The areas explored have been: integrating refugees into supply chains, opportunities for entrepreneurship and facilitating remote work for refugees. The synthesis report explores the innovative approaches implemented by Ben & Jerry’s, Virgin Megastore Middle East, Levi Strauss & Co. and the social enterprise, NaTakallam. It draws on the feedback and analysis of these innovative approaches generated by wider BRAN membership during BRAN’s workshops conducted during 2019 – 2020 and reflects on the impact of COVID-19 on businesses trialling new approaches.
