COVID-19 and Forced Displacement in the Global South | Economic Well-Being and Integration

Please join the Center for Effective Global Action (CEGA), Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA), and the Joint Data Center on Forced Displacement (JDC) for the fourth webinar in a mini-series focused on the impacts of COVID-19 on forcibly displaced people in the Global South, and efforts by NGOs and governments to support them.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had wide-reaching economic consequences across the globe, leaving vulnerable populations such as the forcibly displaced in an even more precarious situation than before the pandemic. On June 2, Ceren Baysan, Sandra Rozo, Stefano Caria, and Thomas Ginn will share insights on the integration, targeting, and economic wellbeing of forcibly displaced populations during COVID-19. The event will feature evidence from eight countries, including Colombia, Jordan, and Turkey.

In addition to discussing their findings and participating in a Q&A session, panelists will also discuss of the challenges of data collection with displaced populations during the COVID-19 pandemic and the impacts these challenges had on their research.

Note: This form includes optional demographic questions that will help us understand how well their events are furthering CEGA’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion goals.

Time: 9:00 AM PT / 12:00 PM EST
