A glance at some of our support

Profiles at a Glance


JIPS’ publications ‘At a glance : the use of profiling’, or formerly ‘Profiles at a Glance’ look at the impact of the profiling exercises supported by JIPS. While providing an overview of the profiling methodology and findings, these publications bring attention to how the collaborative process was shaped and how JIPS concretely contributed. 

Through the At a glance series we hope to spark an interest in both the specific impact of the exercise in a given context, and profiling of displacement situations in general.

For more information about the profiling exercises, visit our country operations page.
