Poverty Alleviation and Women Refugees in the Middle East

The aim of this study is to explore the inter-relationship between entrepreneurship and empowerment of Iraqi, Palestinian and Syrian women refugees displaced to Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. In exploring how they challenge their poverty and social exclusion, the project will contribute to the ESRC and DfID by providing a more robust conceptual and empirical basis for development, and understanding of poverty reduction amongst extremely vulnerable populations. King Hussein Foundation, American University of Beirut and UDA Consulting are the three main implementing bodies.
