20 March 2017
The MENA region is the biggest producer and host of refugees, home to 39% of the world’s displaced people.

That’s the word of United Nations Refugee Agency, which teamed up with the American University Dubai (AUD) to involve students in addressing the worsening problem.

Mohammed Abu Asaker, Regional Spokesperson for the UNHCR says youth engagement is crucial in boosting refugees’ living standards.

He also explains how the initiative will benefit participating students.
