About the program

The program is a joint project between Durable Solutions Platform, the Program on Forced Migration and Health at Columbia University, and Columbia Global Centers | Amman. The project convened and engaged key stakeholders around a strategic dialogue on key policy issues of relevance to the self-reliance and resilience of displaced Syrians and vulnerable Jordanian communities, and produced quality research and data analysis on policy and programming solutions at this humanitarian-development juncture, by placing a special focus on livelihoods, education and protection.
