The Syrian Refugee Crisis Conflict, this term has a broad definition that is defined as “latent tensions and disagreements on the one end and goes to armed and violent clashes (e.g. wars) on the other” (Eroglu Utku, Sirkeci, and Yazgan 2015). This is the root cause of many of the violent wars and crises that have occurred over thousands of years. In more recent times critical conflicts that have occurred throughout the world have had adverse effects globally. It was estimated, by the United Nations, that at the end of 2013 over 51 million people globally, more than half of which included women and children, were displaced due to persecution, warfare, and violence (Salopek 2015). The Syrian civil war has been a large contributor for this large number of displaced people; it has affected countries throughout the world due to the millions of people that have had to find permanent settlement elsewhere as a result of the war between the Syrian government, rebel forces, and ISIS. This has been given the name of the Syrian refugee crisis. Refugees have since been displaced throughout Europe, the Middle East, and North America and have become a global issue that has had difficult solutions. Refugees that have uprooted their lives due to the violence and war brought about from the Syrian civil war still face difficulty being accepted in countries around the world and face larger obstacles when starting life over.
Latifa HassanJan Syrian Refugee University of Kansas On September of 2015, the image of 3-year-old Aylan Kurdi went viral. “The toddler’s lifeless body on a Turkish beach had reverberated across the globe” (Parkinson & George-Cosh, 2015). Aylan’s family had “fled the brutal civil war in their native Syria and only attempted the boat crossing after Canada denied their application of admission as refugees. The image led to an astonishing outpouring of support for Syrian refugees” (Hein & Niazi, 2016).

A refugee is defined as an individual who has been forced to leave their country due to political or religious reasons, or due to threat of war or violence. There were 19.5 million refugees worldwide at the end of 2014, 14.4 million under the mandate of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), around 2.9 million more than in 2013. The other 5.1 million Palestinian refugees are registered with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA). With the displacement of so many people, it is difficult to find countries willing to accept all the refugees. There are over 125 different countries that currently host refugees, and with this commitment comes the responsibility of ensuring these refugees have access to
Allie Fyfe settles herself at the desk, smiling. It is hard to believe the passionate Red Cross volunteer and public health nurse is only twenty-five, as small and fresh-faced as she is. “The lines between my voluntary work and actual job do blur,” she assents. Surprising in one so young, a
After the one year was up of her volunteering, she came back to the United States. She had previously planned on it only being a year long trip and she wanted to honor her father and mother and do what she had committed to. But inside she says that she felt as if that was so wrong to leave. It started to become so apparent to her that Uganda was not a year, Uganda was what God was calling her to for
In the TheWorldPost article Syrian Refugees Living In Brazil Reflect On Their Hopes And Challenges, Gabriela Bazzo has captured the cultural challenges and hopes that many of the over 8,400 refugees have encountered while reestablishing their lives in Brazil. The Syrian refugees have faced many obstacles in acculturating to
Since her time in country, she was able to conclude that there are millions of Syrian refugees left to fin for their own and are continually seeking new stability. In fact, Instabul alone has one of the largest migrated Syrian population with over 2.5 million refugees who showed up with just the clothes on their back. One of her displayed pieces clearly expressed these concerns as it displayed an older gentleman holds a sign stating, “We are from Syria. Can you help us! Thank you.” -Seemingly, it has become beneficially supported by tourist and their sense of compassion rather than that of the Turkish people. So by, putting a face on Syria, Tina has been able to expose and express a great deal Syria’s turmoil and bring cultural awareness to others. Her overall goal was built off experience: to understand that we’re more alike than different as human beings and we should help these fellow nations in its time of being oppressed. This methodology has allowed Tina to create her Syrian refugee project in regards to such. Doing so by donating 100% of this projects proceeds towards the support of getting Syrian refugees children educationally funded and
What's the feature you notice most about a person when you first meet them? What their clothes look like? Voice? Skin tone? Personality? You can’t define someone from the color of their skin or where they are from. In present time this has become a big issue accusing a certain group of people of associating with certain groups just because of where they are from. Syrians are one of those groups of people that get accused of being part of isis or a terrorist. As Syrian refugees are trying to get into other countries not all countries are so accepting of letting the refugees in. The united states are allowing a small amount of refugees into the united states but not enough. If the the united states won’t allow a large amount of Syrian refugees
In this blog Danielle Bello talks about different aspects of the Syrian Refugee Crisis. Danielle doesn’t just cover what this Crisis is about, but also the history behind it. She talks about three examples of refugees coming into the United States that were the Irish, the Jews, and the Vietnamese. There are similarities in the response of fear coming from the American people. The majority of people are scared from the difference in religion. Danielle goes into talking about the effects of countries not taking in the refugees. By us not taking in refugees we are feeding into the ISIS recruiting field. Each kid that we leave without a home is one more ISIS can get their hands on. Many politicians use fear of the unknown to fuel their campaigns
In the recent days Syria has been suffering of many unfortunate events, and the citizens of this country are being the most affected by all the events. Some of Syria citizens decided to look for a safer place for their selves and their children. However, many countries had decided to close their borders and negate the entry to any Syrian refugee. For my personal opinion human beings trend to help each other’s for nature. In addition, many religions around the world say that if you can help someone that need’s it you must do it. Anyway, when world leaders decided to negate their help to the Syrian refugees they were been inauthentic to their religions and to their human nature. If it is true that terrorism is something that comes from Middle East, we should not negate the opportunity to survive to all the innocent people that are suffering in that zone.
Week six I wrote about a Syrian Refugee who fulfilled her Olympic swimming dream. Buddha once said; “No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.” This quote is very relatable to Yusra Mardini’s life. She lived the typical life of any teenager in Syria. She was the middle child with two sisters, lived with her parents, and attended gymnastics and swimming. Her life was as ordinary as anyone's - until conflict came, leading to suffering and death as Syria broke into a civil war. The years passed as Ysura watched her country get torn apart. The family had to move out of their house as it had become embarked in flames. The bombs kept coming, seeming endless as they tore apart buildings one after another, including the building of the swimming pool Ysura trained in. Yusra could no longer practice her beloved sport - swimming. Four and a half years since the start of the civil war in Syria, Yusra and others finally left. After a month of traveling, they had survived the 1,000-mile journey to Germany. Four weeks of training in Germany had passed and Yusra’s coach, Sven Spannerkrebs, made plans for the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.
The Syrian Refugee Crisis Whether or not the United States should be admitting more Syrian refugees into the country is a constant debate among people. Syrian refugee lives are just as important as American citizens lives and for this reason, the United States has a
