Sustainable Integration Framework to Connect Displaced Communities with Host Nations
The term “displaced” refers to an individual or group of individuals who are forced from their home place because of war, persecution, or natural disaster. Hence, displaced people have had to leave their homes to another location because of external communal forces. Given the displaced community is required to settle in another location away from their own homes, the integration of the displaced into the host community is considered as a multifaceted process. The goal is to create a connection between each displaced person and the host societies for each of the different spatial contexts: locations at different zones with different contexts. In recent times, displaced population can be found all over the world, and the population is increasing every year. Settlements for displaced communities are nothing new. However, the displaced population all over the world is increasing at a high rate. This phenomenon is directly related to various social aspects and political issues. Additionally, other factors, such as economics and religious concerns, including multiple environmental issues are the impactors of the increasing population of displaced communities. Therefore, the world interprets the influx of displaced people often as burdensome and sometimes as hostile. Each of the displaced communities have a different story with respect to its context. Climate and culture vary accordingly. The temporary settlements of the displaced communities are observed to be located along the thresholds, boundaries, and borders of the cities. The connections between buildings, streets/buildings, and plaza/street/buildings, create potential spaces that redefine the segregation to integration. These connecting nexus can be defined or reimagined into a communal space for integration. The landscape connects the culture of both the societies by the implementation of civic spaces for integrated activities. The unity of the communities of different socio-economic culture can help in filling the gap with the aid of architecture. This research proposes the development of a framework for the development of the displaced communities into new host cities, which will further connect the existing cities by the means of integrated communal services. This strategy weaves the host society and displaced society to develop a common platform of interest. The result of this research will have direct impact on the community when stretched and integrated with a sustainable functional scheme,regulations, and securities.
