Leading Jordanian artisans and heritage entrepreneurs came together with representatives from UN agencies and other international, national and local agencies working with Syrian refugees to share their expert opinions, experiences and knowledge about the current state of the Syrian cultural heritage, and the enterprising efforts in Jordan for preserving it.
Given the feed-forward from the participants, the research team will adjust the sampling framework to include Jordanian key informants and artisans alongside the Syrian refugee artisans residing in Jordan. In doing so, we will capture the nuances around the dynamics between the Jordanian and Syrian artisan communities, to reflect a more holistic and comprehensive perspective.
Data collection with Syrian refugee male artisans operating enterprises that they established in Jordan at least three years ago will begin in May. Do get in touch to direct us towards such artisans.
