Government restrictions on movement and economic activities in response to COVID-19 have disrupted many small businesses, especially those of already vulnerable populations, like the displaced Syrian and Iraqi communities in Lebanon and neighboring countries. How does the pandemic exacerbate existing challenges for marginalized communities and create new ones? How can businesses around the world adapt and restart once economic activities resume? What are the prospects for a return to financial self-sufficiency?
Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law professor Juliet Sorensen and Near East Foundation (NEF) President Dr. Charles Benjamin address these questions and more, drawing on a recent NEF assessment of the COVID-19 pandemic's effect on livelihoods and lessons learned from community-based efforts to adapt.
An installment of Northwestern Buffett Institute for Global Affairs "Confronting COVID-19: Global Implications and Futures" webinar series.
