Solving the Global Refugee Crisis and Other Disasters: Business Solutions to the World’s Toughest Problems

How do we tackle the growing refugee crisis? Are there any solutions on which Democrats and Republicans can agree? Christine Mahoney spent a decade studying every protracted refugee crisis in the world, including in-depth fieldwork in seven conflict zones in Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe, and Latin America. She wrote a book detailing what won’t work and proposing a solution that will: impact investing in refugee and host community entrepreneurs. Now she is working with a team of international investors, governments, entrepreneurs, and organizations to make the idea a reality.
