Syria: Left out in the cold: Syrian refugees abandoned by the international community
The three-year-old conflict in Syria has created one of the worst humanitarian crises in recent history. So far, nearly half of the country’s population has been forced to leave their homes and 3.8 million of those fleeing have become refugees in neighbouring countries. The staggering scale of the refugee crisis has pushed the capacity of the main host countries to the limit. The response of the international community has been wholly inadequate relative to the magnitude of the displacement.
