Pioneering Social Enterprise Solutions for Refugees and Trafficking Survivors
Marie Haller, Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship
Humanitarian aid is only part of the solution to solving the global refugee crisis. When taking into account restrictions refugees and migrants face involving employment and movement, the quality of living conditions within camps and peri-urban slums, actual money and resources spent on unsettled refugees, and most importantly, security for women and children, it becomes clear that a bottom-up enterprise-level approach is required. This panel will bring together a variety of stakeholders to show how the incorporation of new development practices can complement humanitarian aid solutions for displaced people. Join us to learn more about and help build this nascent social enterprise sector.
