Poverty Alleviation and Women Refugees in the Middle East: Empowerment through Grassroots Micro-Entrepreneurship

2016

This project will explore the effectiveness and impact of the available pathways for support and advice for displaced and refugee women and analyze the extent to which entrepreneurship is a sustainable conduit for poverty alleviation and empowerment in socio-politically volatile circumstances. This will be discovered by finding the inter-relationship between entrepreneurship and empowerment of Iraqi, Palestinian and Syrian refugee women displaced to Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey, through a focus on the structural inequalities based on gender, ethnicity, and spatial factors.
