Turkey: Struggling to survive: Refugees from Syria in Turkey

By Amnesty International, , Index number: EUR 44/017/2014

Turkey is hosting at least 1.6 million refugees from Syria, of which over 220,000 are accommodated in government-run refugee camps. However, the country’s response to the Syrian refugee crisis, despite its significant resource commitments and many positive policy initiatives, is increasingly showing its limitations. In this report Amnesty International calls on the Turkish authorities to ensure safe passage for refugees from Syria. The organization also urges the international community to significantly scale up its support for refugees from Syria in the spirit of genuine responsibility-sharing.
