The challenge of human displacement from Syria is large and growing in scale. A great deal of qualitative and quantitative evidence suggests that the situation of Syria’s displaced people is becoming increasingly problematic: on the one hand, those who succeed in escaping from their country are struggling to find a safe refuge in other states; on the other, those who have found safe refugee in other states are trying to integrate their lives into the receiving communities over time. The aim of this talk is twofold: (1) providing a historical analysis on Turkey’s position as a destination country, and (2) examining how, in what ways, and to what extent the move from temporariness to integration of Syrian refugees in Turkey has occurred over the last five years.
