Refugees and other vulnerable populations are among those predominantly affected in the last three years when the world witnessed great shocks. The COVID-19 pandemic, for example, brought in a new way of living that significantly burdened the livelihood of many people. Moreover, the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 added more difficulties, slowing down the pace of recovery from the pandemic. This study builds on multiple data sources conducted during 2021-2022 to better understand the impact of shocks occurring outside of Jordan, and how that impacts the socio-economic situations of people living in Jordan. The study shows differential recovery pattern of refugees living in camps and out of camp after the initial shocks, as well as explain how the recovery process for refugees differs from host communities in Jordan. The study also looks at whether and why refugees living outside of camps adopt more extreme coping mechanisms than those in camps, and what the possible policy implication are.
