The Refugee crisis across Europe and beyond is among the most complex topics in the world right now. Most of the refugees are coming from Syria, but why? Why can’t they just stay at home? Within the last 5 years there has been a mass exodus of civilians in Syria; other countries have experienced very similar scenarios with civilians leaving. With so many are leaving, it is quite difficult for refugees to find safe places to stay. About 6 years ago Syria was among the most stable countries in the Middle East (though ruled by what can be described as a dictator). However, civil war and economic problems have severely affected them. Their President Bashar Al-Assad has made many extremely controversial decisions. Two causes of the Syrian
The Syrian Civil War has had a profound effect of all Syrians as well as neighbouring countries and the international community. With more than 11 million homeless Syrians comes consequences beyond what most of the world population has ever experienced or anticipated. Of the displaced, almost 5 million are refugees outside Syria and around 6 million have been displaced inside Syria, with half of all displaced Syrians being children. The main causes of displacement amongst the population is the violence committed by all sides of the war, and which often targets civilians or centres of high civilian activity (such as markets, hospitals, schools, workplaces or high density residential areas). One main group heavily affected by the conflict
The reason behind Syrians fleeing their home country is to get away from the absolute violence, Syrian civil war has caused, the collapsing infrastructure of the country, and to keep children safe.The outbreak of a civil war in March 2011 caused 9 million Syrians to leave since then (“Syrian Refugees: A Snapshot of the Crisis – in the Middle East and Europe” 1). The Syrian Civil War has left more than two-hundred forty thousand people dead, including twelve thousand children.
This act forced thousands of people to leave their homes for safer places within their country if they did not want to follow the factions rules. Over time, the factions grew more and more powerful causing allies of these countries to send reinforcements and help defeat these rebel groups. The increased military presence forced more people to leave, some left for other countries, hoping to one day return. The amount of people displaced from the war just in Syria is “11 million people within and beyond the country’s borders”(Zong). Approximately 5 million of these refugees left the country for safe countries around the world. If each country in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas each took an equal amount of people the refugee crisis wouldn't be as big of an issue as it currently is. Currently, some countries are taking in far more than others, while some countries are taking in next to none. The majority of Syrian refugees have taken asylum in other middle eastern countries, with Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan holding the vast majority, with each having over 1.2 million. In Europe, Germany and Sweden have taken in 64 percent of all asylum seekers who have ventured to Europe, while
Did you know that refugees have been around since World War II? Due to the war and the aggression from the Nazis, over 55 million people became refugees during the whole World War II era. Around one million people still needed a place to stay after five years since the war had ended. The Cold War, mini wars and battles in Mozambique, Africa, Afghanistan, Rwanda, The Soviet Union, etc, as well as The Vietnam War were some of the causes for refugee population increase and displacement during 1960-2000 era. According to the UNHCR, ever since the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center Buildings to present time, there has been over 60 million refugees displaced, surpassing the World War II numbers. The ongoing Syrian War has had a tremendous
Syria's civil war has been the worst humanitarian crisis of our time. With more than 250,000 people who have died in this violent outbreak in Syria during 2011. During the course of the civil war at least 11 million people out of a 22 million populated country have fled their homes. Many families in Syria are struggling to make life for themselves, or even other neighboring countries. While others are risking their lives on the way to Europe, hoping to find acceptance and opportunity. And the onset of harsh winter weather makes life as a refugee even more difficult. At times, the effects of the conflict can seem overwhelming. Although one simple fact is true, these Syrian refugees need our help. And as a country that inserted a resettlement we should contribute more into helping these refugees. But the United states governors fear of terrorism could cost the extent of our aid to be limited.
Syrian refugees face countless challenges every day of their lives. Refugees who have not found safety amongst North America and Northern Europe must fend for themselves on the outskirts of the Middle East. Thousands of refugees have perished in the last year alone, attempting the journey
A refugee is someone who has fled his/her country because of a justifiable fear of persecution due to religion, nationality, race, member of a particular social group or political opinion and cannot or does not want to return to his/her country because of that fear. Refugees face humanitarian problems, they burden the economies of their host countries, and often create security risks. War is usually the reason for fear and flight. Since the beginning of the Syrian civil war, which started in 2011, millions of lives have fled their country in search for a better life elsewhere. There are several conflicts that contribute to the violence and war in Syria, all revolving one man their president, Bashar al-Assad.
What if you were called a refugee one day? Many of Syrians are losing their homes to terrorists. They are now facing a similar issue Jews faced in WWII. Nearly 1/3 of the Jews on the St. Louis died after they tried going to 2 different countries and were denied by both. So, Syrians today are alike and different in many ways from Jews.
First off, following the Syrian Civil war, millions of Syrian’s citizens fled the country in hopes of seeking asylum. This Syrian refugee crisis has engendered controversy, as a result of the dispute of whether these refugees may pose a
Syrian refugees suffered and lost a lot until they reached the nearest nation that accepts them. They are seeking safety and a simple, honorable life for their families. There are many difficulties they faced because their rejection from the Arab countries the neighbor of their country and the countries of the world.

We all should help these innocent people and save them from the despotic ruler and the civil war. They are human being and they deserve to live their lives just like us. I interested in this topic because I was a refugee just like them, and we had a similar crisis, I feel their situation. We escaped from the war and
As a result, there was a full blown war between the government and rebels including the Free Syrian Army. Throughout the past five years, there has been 220,000 casualties due to the violation of people’s rights and bombings in overpopulated cities. Families are struggling to make ends meet in Syria, while million put their lives on the line seeking shelter in neighboring countries in Europe. In Lebanon 1 in 5 people are a Syrian refugees and 1 in 13 people in Jordan are Syrian refugees.

The Syrian refugee crisis has received massive media coverage. People around the world are trying to comprehend the desperate, complicated situation surrounding Syria. The civil war in Syria is the worst crisis in our time. Syrians upset at the fact that long promised reforms have not been enacted, began anti-government demonstrations which started the civil war in 2011. The peaceful protests turned ugly, with the government violently putting an end to those protests. Afterward, ordinary citizens took arms, causing the situation to escalate. Syrians are fleeing their homes because of the great violence, which have left thousands dead and millions wounded, a collapsed infrastructure, resulting in a shattered economy, and for the safety of the children. Syrians are either streaming to surrounding countries or risking their lives to travel to Europe.
Evolution; the biological term for change over time. However, this word extends to much more than simply a bird’s beak getting longer over generations. This principle can also be associated with the growth of a person, but in a much more metaphysical fashion. To give an example, throughout this performance task, I have evolved as a writer, student, and team member. This is clearly exemplified through the steps my team and I took to complete this essay.
Syria like many countries before them, such as Libya and Egypt has become the epicenter for change in the region, allowing for other countries to follow in their footsteps. The question that is asked, what are the factors behind the instability in Syria and how does the religious conflict within their region have causal relations to the growing instability and the blending of borders due to refugees and displacement of their citizens? Looking exclusively at Syria serious key factors can be represented sociologically with regards to stratification, religion and power that is held by the elite class, which also makes up the religious minority. While roughly 90% of country is Muslim, 74% are Sunni, that makes up a majority of
