Research – Development Approaches to Forced Displacement in the Syria Region

Large groups of people have fled Syria as a result of the war there. By far the majority of displaced Syrians have ended up in Syria's neighbouring countries. The Asylum in the Region programmes provide support to displaced persons and host communities. The Netherlands focuses specifically on protection, education and employment for refugees and vulnerable groups in the host countries.

IOB is examining Dutch support to refugees and host communities in Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq.
