Turkey's Syrian refugees

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

The civil war in Syria has gravely impacted Turkey - currently it alone hosts more than two million refugees from Syria. A great majority of these refugees live around the cities along the Turkish-Syrian border. With no end in sight, Turkey, as the country that hosts more refugees than any other state in the world, has reached a significant threshold in its ability to unilaterally deal with and sustain its response to the situation. In order to deal with the three different dimensions of the refugee crisis, a multilayered approach needs to be established by a global coalition of countries.
