Vidéo: Empowering refugees through entrepreneurial training programs

In this video, Professor Farah Kodeih (a member of ICOR) speaks about some of her recent research that looked at how a local NGO supported Syrian refugees in their efforts to rebuild meaningful lives and become less dependent on aid.

Together with her coauthors Henri Schildt from Aalto University in Finland, and Tom Lawrence from Oxford University in the UK they studied an entrepreneurial training program that helped the refugees set up small businesses and they identified different ways in which this NGO empowered refugees.
