March 2020 Colloquia - Sayed.pngFacebook Event

Join Linda Sayed from the James Madison College for her talk on 'Mapping the Health and Humanitarian Plight of Syrian Refugees in Lebanon.' This presentation is part of an ongoing series of GenCen sponsored colloquia presentations.

The Syrian refugee crisis is one of the largest and most pressing humanitarian issue of our time. Professor Sayed will present her research on the Syrian refugee crisis in Lebanon from the perspective of medical and healthcare needs. Drawing on ethnographic material, and research conducted with United Nations agencies and local NGOs in Lebanon, Professor Sayed analyzes how Syrians negotiate and obtain health and social services. Her research exposes the national and international institutions and infrastructural powers that produce and limit Syrian refugees' political mobilization and accessibility to health services. Her research analyzes the critical intersections between global public health concerns and refugee politics.
