Multi-Purpose Cash Assistance vs Foster Care, Disability and Other Protection Considerations in Multi-stakeholder Environment, Ukraine Refugee Response in Poland

This short research paper on strategic linkages between localized cash response, protection and social protection in Poland offers medium dive into the subject matter. The methodology involved both desk-based analysis, visits and interviews as part of a qualitative survey focused on the response in the City of Gdansk and a smaller centre – Ostroda. This work offers a series of five hypotheses in the background to the study which undergird our thinking as well as some observations on the challenges of aligning humanitarian aid with social protection.
