Iraqi Refugees in Jordan and Syria: Food Security and Humanitarian Assistance

Adam Sirois, director of Global Development and adjunct faculty, NYU College of Nursing

The Iraq conflict resulted in the largest displacement in the Middle East in recent history, and provision of health services to the displaced population presents a critical challenge. With an increase in the number of people affected by complex emergencies and the number of people displaced in urban settings, the international community must adapt intervention strategies to meet the specific demands and contexts of this population. Discuss the results of a study that aimed to provide information on food security and livelihoods for Iraqi refugees in Syria and Jordan to inform humanitarian assistance planning.

A CGA Election 2012 Special Event


The 2012 U.S. Presidential election has largely focused on domestic issues: the deficit, economic recession and recovery, and social programs such as health care have been the main focus of dialogue, debate, and attacks. The U.S. international agenda has remained on the periphery. Yet widely debated domestic issues such as trade and energy security have international ramifications. Likewise, international alliances and trade competition will have an increasingly heavy impact on the nation’s direction.


With two very different visions presented by Obama and Romney, what might be the potential global impact of a continued Democratic or newly elected Republican White House? Professor Arthur Miller and a panel of experts in policy and world affairs will discuss economic, energy, and security issues, and how the U.S. position in the world might alter under two very distinct agendas.
