Assessing the Functionality of Marketplaces Serving Rohingya Refugees in Bangladesh

This study provides insights into the functionality of marketplaces in Cox’s Bazar. It brings two novel elements in the existing body of literature on the rapidly evolving market situations and prevailing challenges in the context of Rohingyas refugees.This assessment confirms that the functionality of marketplaces in Cox’s Bazar is adequate, with the caveat that a great deal of the demand, for the refugee population, is met by goods donated either with in-kind assistance or through e-voucher shops, therefore formal and informal markets have not proved yet they can completely supply the camps.
