Summary/Abstract: Out of 2.8 million Syrian refugees in Turkey, about 10% of these people reside in 22 refugee camps situated within Turkish cities (AFAD, 2013; UNHCR, 2016; Sirkeci, 2017). The remainder of the Syrian refugee population in Turkey lives in urban areas amongst the local population. Major cities such as Istanbul, Ankara, and Izmir, as well as the cities located on the Turkish-Syrian border such as Gaziantep and Hatay, host the highest numbers of refugees (Directorate General of Migration Management (DGMM), 2016). Consequently, Syrian refugees are highly visible in most of the Turkish cities where they reside.
