IDMC is a Champion of the Inclusive Data Charter (IDC), a global multi stakeholder network launched in 2018. The IDC works to advance the availability and use of inclusive and disaggregated data. It also monitors the needs of marginalised people and ensures no one is left behind.
Intersectional approaches to data need to be founded on good knowledge of the context. This is because practitioners need to pay close attention to the historical, political, economic, and social forces in a particular place in order to both identify and address intersecting inequalities.
This case study discusses the steps that IDMC takes to develop a good knowledge of the context when designing research on internal displacement. However, the tips and techniques presented can be applied in other contexts and used by practitioners engaging with data in project or program design.
