Addressing Protracted Displacement: The Turkish Case
As the displacement of Syrians and other refugees in Turkey becomes increasingly protracted with no quick solution to the conflict in Syria in sight, overstretching the resources and capacities for the refugee response to its limits, formulating strategies and solutions to address the medium to long-term needs of refugees and host communities becomes increasingly vital.
This understanding is fully in line with the commitment of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda to “leave no one behind” in development processes, including refugees and host communities, as well as the recent World Humanitarian Summit’s call to link development and humanitarian solutions to address needs better in prolonged situations.
In the margins of the World Humanitarian Summit, CIC and Bahcesehir University's BAUCESS Center organized an event entitled "Addressing Protracted Displacement: The Turkish Case" on 22 May 2016 at Bahcesehir University.
The event focused on :
- The status of Syrians in Turkey:
- The temporary protection mechanism
- Expanding educational opportunities for Syrians
- Ensuring sustainable health services
- Enabling access to livelihoods
- Urban displacement and host communities
- Opportunities for inclusion and integration
