    On the occasion of International Migrants Day, UNU-CPR and the Institute for Migration Studies (IMS) at the Lebanese American University, in partnership with the MIDEQ Hub and the International Labour Organization (ILO) are organizing an online panel that aims to address the contributions of migration to development in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, focusing on Jordan and Lebanon more specifically.

    Moderated by Professor Heaven Crawley (UNU-CPR), panelists from MIDEQ (Jordan) and the ILO Regional Office (Lebanon) will discuss how migratory practices have contributed, and continue to contribute to, development priorities and narratives in both contexts. Dr Jasmin Lilian Diab (IMS and UNU-CPR) will provide introductory remarks on the MENA context.
