2019 NEID Giving Circle on Refugees
February 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
February – September 2019
Though most conflicts today are internal to states, the global refugee crisis transcends national borders to affect all corners of the world. Irrespective of the conflict, refugees face a host of common issues as they seek peace and security, ranging from the trauma of the refugee journey itself to challenging humanitarian conditions in refugee camps, prejudice from host communities, a lack of self-reliance and livelihood, and even problems arising as a result of resettling or returning home. Should refugees successfully overcome these obstacles, they must still cope with the trauma of war for generations to come. This circle will explore some of these key challenges, examine gaps in funding, and seek to identify ways to improve the lives of refugees.
