Refugees and their hosts

New episode of Pocket Economics podcast

In the new episode of our ‘Pocket Economics’ podcast, we discuss the challenges faced by refugees and the communities that host them.

Countries where the EBRD is working, such as Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon are currently hosting millions of refugees. How do they cope?

“The global community has a responsibility to recognise the generosity and the responsibility that these countries have taken as host countries. And they need to extend their support,” says our guest Daphne Jayasinghe, Economic Recovery and Development Policy Adviser at the International Rescue Committee.

How can the private sector and international organisations help?

Listen to Daphne Jayasinghe in conversation with Vanora Bennett.
