Project investigators Professor S Marlow and Dr H. Al-Dajani chaired a Professional Development Workshop at the Academy of Management conference entitled 'Entrepreneurial activity at the interface of conflict, displacement, and resettlement'.
Joined by Professor J. Mair of the Hertie School of Governance and the Stanford Centre on Philanthropy and Civil Society, and project partners Dr A.Essaid of the King Hussein Foundation Information and Research Centre and Dr N.Yassin of the Issam Fares Institute at the American University of Beirut, the team delivered workshop offering visibility to a growing sector of humanity who are now dependent upon micro-enterprising to re-build their lives, support their families and the wider community.
We are delighted with the feedback from Dr Signe Hedeboe Frederiksen of Aarhus University;
''this was the best session I have attended so far at AOM with a sense of importance and meaningfulness. It opened my eyes and I left the room full of new ideas''.
