This policy paper examines the consequences of an increasing emphasis in humanitarian and development work on multi-stakeholder partnerships (MSPs); the implications of increased migration and integration in urban and city environments; and the roles of religious and multireligious actors in supporting inclusive and effective MSPs when working on migration and social cohesion initiatives. The use of MSPs as a tool to respond to increased migration and enhanced social cohesion in urban areas can be extremely effective when addressing the complex needs and issues required to support migrants and refugees in a sympathetic and appropriate way, whilst also acknowledging the needs of local communities.
