Description

Solving the Global Refugee Crisis and Other Disasters

Christine Mahoney, Professor of Public Policy and Politics at the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy and Director of Social Entrepreneurship at the University of Virginia

How do we tackle the growing refugee crisis? Are there any solutions on which Democrats and Republicans can agree? Christine Mahoney spent a decade studying every protracted refugee crisis in the world, including in-depth fieldwork in seven conflict zones in Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe, and Latin America. She wrote a book detailing what won’t work and proposing a solution that will: impact investing in refugee and host community entrepreneurs. Now she is working with a team of international investors, governments, entrepreneurs, and organizations to make the idea a reality. Learn about the global refugee crisis and our best chance of helping 70 million people get back on their feet – the Refugee Investment Network.
