Turkey continues to host the largest number of refugees worldwide, with the number of people forcibly displaced worldwide due to conflict, violence and persecution at record levels. Turkey currently hosts around 4 million foreign refugees, including 3.6 million registered Syrian refugees.
Most Syrians currently residing in Turkey are protected from forcible return to Syria and also have access to basic public services, including health care and, most recently, formal education. Following the EU-Turkey statement in March 2018, refugees began receiving modest cash support from the Emergency Social Safety Net Programs and Conditional Cash Transfer for Education. Since the support that Syrians receive from the state hardly meets their needs, they have been informally involved in the Turkish labor market for quite some time, because many Syrians residing in Turkey do not have work permits. In this context, their participation was marred by many problems and challenges.
