“Researching the Multiple Dimensions of Syrian Refugees’ Lives in Turkey” 
Convener Dr Franck Düvell  German Center für Integration and Migration Research (DeZIM) 

Berlin, Monday, 24 June 2019 



From the outbreak of the civil war in Syria in 2011 and the proliferation of DAESH in Iraq large numbers of displaced persons escaped to Turkey. Most of these were Syrians. Initially, they were granted a ‘temporary protection status’ though it has become increasingly obvious that the case has become a protracted refugee situation. This raises a number of questions ranging from the various dimensions of integration to peoples’ ambitions for their future. In particular, we are interested in (but this not limited to) the following topics: 

  • Migration experiences and future migration aspirations 
  • Return migration 
  • Political and legal developments after March 2016 
  • Impact of policies and interventions in northern Syria 
  • Family, children and considerations for their well-being, divided families 
  • Psychology of displacement and reintegration 
  • Social integration 
  • Housing situation 
  • Economic and labour market integration, self-employment, Syrian businesses 
  • Changing public attitudes 

We are particularly but not only interested in recent, robust quantitative studies, and also in the methods and field experiences in studying hard to reach/hidden populations in Turkey. 

We are planning to organise a one-day research and policy event and select around eight papers. Due to limited funding we will be able to invite up to four researchers based in Turkey or elsewhere in Europe and four or more researchers based in Germany. For all paper givers travel expenses will be covered and for up to four international participants accommodation will also be covered (but not visa expenses). 

Deadline: 5 May 2019 

For further questions and/or to send publications please contact Dr Franck Düvell at: 



 1Due to the convener’s relocation from COMPAS, Oxford to Berlin TurkMiS has now been relocated to DeZIM. TurkMiS promotes research on migration from, to and through Turkey and the wider region.
