DescriptionThe Jordanian government’s strict measures in response to COVID-19 have been praised for enabling the country to minimize the health impact of the virus and allow a faster reopening. At the same time, the rapid shutdown left many individuals within its borders—including approximately 745,000 refugees—without income or support in an already-dire economic situation. In this webinar, Reva Dhingra, a PhD Candidate in Government at Harvard University, discusses her coverage of COVID-19's impact on refugee communities in Jordan. This webinar is part of the series, "COVID-19 in the Middle East," hosted by the Middle East Research and Information Project (MERIP) and the University of Chicago Center for Middle Eastern Studies.
