FMHT: Remittances, Forced Displacement, and Human Security (Lunch Talk)

  • Starts: 12:00 pm on Wednesday, March 30, 2016

Hundreds of billions of dollars are transmitted as migrant remittances every year. The ongoing global refugee crisis has resulted in millions of newly displaced. Although remittances are crucial for the livelihoods of those living in conflict-affected countries, very little is known about the dynamics of refugee remitting. The seminar discusses remitting patterns and channels among forced migrants and IDPs and the profound impacts of these resource flows to the survival of those left behind. Join FMHT for a lunchtime discussion. Pizza will be served. RSVP to to reserve your seat today.
