Summary/Abstract: In Syria, anti-regime demonstrations which started in March 2011 turned into violent conflicts and soon after a full-scale civil war broke out. The current situation of armed conflicts across Syria has caused widespread migration which makes Syria the world’s largest source country of refugees (UNHCR, 2014, 8). Before the conflict, the population of Syria was 20.7 million people (World Population Policies 2011, 491). Because of warfare in their countries 4.8 million Syrians were forced to leave their homes and sought protection especially in neighbouring countries such as Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt (UNHCR, 2016).
