16.12.2020 - Online-Seminar: Economic integration into host communities in times of crisis

Access to labour market plays an essential role in allowing displaced populations to sustain their livelihoods and integrate into a host community. However, evidence shows that displaced people face specific challenges in integrating into the labour market. Covid-19 further aggravates these challenges. In this online-seminar, Jana Kuhnt (DIE) and Kirsten Schüttler (Worldbank) present evidence on interventions to ease the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the livelihoods of displaced populations, in the short term during lockdowns and in the medium and longer term under remaining restrictions and changed economic structures.

Presenters: Jana Kuhnt, DIE und Kirsten Schüttler, Worldbank

Date: December 16, 2020 1:00-1:30 pm (CET)

How to participate: Join the Seminar via Webex, no prior registration required


About the seminar series and the Thematic Team "Rigorous Impact Evaluation":

The Thematic Team on “Rigorous Impact Evaluation” (RIE), founded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and DEval brings together experts from BMZ, evaluation, academia, governmental organizations as well as civil society to contribute to a more systematic integration of rigorous impact evaluations and the use of their results in German Development Cooperation. To contribute to a more evidence-informed implementation of BMZ's Corona Programme members of the Thematic Team and other scientific experts synthesized the experience and evidence on the effectiveness of measures in four central thematic areas of the BMZ's Corona Programme in Policy Briefs. The authors present the results of this work in half-hour webinars
