Abdel-Baste Athamneh, “Gender Differences in Unemployment and Poverty at Palestinian Refugee Camps in Jordan

December 5, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Female refugees at Palestinian camps in Jordan have limited opportunities for education, training and employment. This study, based on a survey of 674 families at the four refugee camps for Palestinians in Jordan, examines the difference between female-headed and male-headed households on a series of economic indicators, including unemployment and poverty rates. Niklaus Steiner and Charles Kurzman will serve as discussants.
