Refugees Knowledge Base


The Syrian conflict is having disastrous humanitarian, social and economic consequences both in Syria, neighboring countries, and the entire Mediterranean region. This unprecedented and protracted refugee crisis is placing an extraordinary burden on host countries and communities. This regional knowledge base aims at highlighting the socio-economic challenges involved in hosting refugees in the heavily affected Middle East and Turkey, as well as Europe and North Africa. Despite obvious differences in burden-sharing among host countries and communities within these sub-regions, they face common challenges and can benefit and learn from each other’s experiences through cross-regional exchanges. This knowledge base offers evidence-based analyses, innovative actions and solutions to develop more effective responses to the refugee crisis. These are essential to boosting actors’ capacities in order to work towards the common welfare of refugees and host communities.
