METUMIR Joint Webinar Civil Society Refugee Response in Turkey amid COVID-19 (10th January 2020): This panel seeks to create an opportunity for dialogue between multiple stakeholders within the civil society space in and around Turkey, particularly as it relates to refugee assistance amid COVID-19. Comprising voices from academia, EU policy development, local and international humanitarian aid professionals, and refugee leaders themselves, this session will reflect on the challenges and risks posed by the coronavirus pandemic to refugee and host communities in the Turkish context while exploring the role of CSOs in refugee response interventions. In the end, we hope to draw lessons from the COVID-19 period to strengthen cooperation between local and international actors, to provide feedback on the overall effectiveness of EU policies targeting refugees in Turkey, and ultimately to inform the future of international and local refugee response efforts in Turkey.
