With a record number of refugees moving across the globe, there is much debate among policymakers and academics on how best to provide for refugees’ humanitarian needs while also ensuring the stability of host countries’ political and economic institutions and preventing radicalization among affected groups. Professor Miguel will present initial findings from the ongoing Syrian Refugee Life Study (S-RLS) to evaluate the effectiveness of one such specific, scalable program — the Norwegian Refugee Council Jordan’s Urban Shelter Program – to support both refugees and host communities.
Edward Miguel is the Oxfam Professor of Environmental and Resource Economics at the Department of Economics and Faculty Director of the Center for Effective Global Action at the University of California, Berkeley.
