This report explores the factors that influence migrants’ access to the rental housing market with the objective to support programming efforts to help migrants successfully navigate the rental housing market on equitable grounds. This study is based on evidence from four key urban centres in Libya (Tripoli, Misrata, Benghazi and Sebha).
The study found that sociodemographic factors, such as language skills, nationality, socioeconomic status, cultural affinity and gender were among the most important factors that influence migrants’ ability to navigate the rental housing market.
