Summary/Abstract: Turkey has received many immigrants and refugees over the last two decades. The increase in the number of non-citizens has been substantial,especially in times of crisis and war in neighbouring countries, leading to a refugee influx, the most recent of which is over 2.7 million Syrians who have fled the war in their home country. Soykan (2015) has categorised immigrants as those of Turkish descent, foreigners with a work permit, circular migrants,irregular migrants, asylum seekers and refugees, those under humanitarian protection, and guests. Interestingly, since the beginning of the migration of Syrians to Turkey, they have been referred to as guests by the government and the media, although it is unlikely that they will return to Syria anytime soon.
