Creating Enterprising Futures: micro enterprise amongst women refugees in the Middle East:
Professor Susan Marlow (Nottingham), Dr Haya Al Dajani (Plymouth) Dr Nasser Yassin (AUB, Beirut)
May 17th 2018 – 5.30 – 8 pm, The Ingenuity Centre, University of Nottingham, Jubilee Campus
Public Seminar exploring the role of micro-enterprising as an emancipating influence upon refugee women in the Middle-East.
Drawing from evidence gathered from an Economic and Social Research Council & Department for International Development funded intervention project, we will critically evaluate the scope of micro-enterprise to change lives. Working with refugee women in Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey and a range of intermediary organisations, we present evidence illustrating the potential of micro-enterprise to generate income, offer independence and empowerment to women whose lives have been devastated by conflict, violence and forced displacement. Following the seminar, there will be drinks and canapes served in the Ingenuity Centre Atrium
