Syrian Refugees and Paucity of Information
The United Nations (UN) and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) are deeply concerned by the growing millions in the numbers of refugees universally, especially in Syria.Â Â The government of Turkey is currently hosting 3.5 million Syrian refugees and an additional 33,000 Syrians were registered in North Africa; they have been displaced by the ongoing conflict in their home country since 2011.Â Â These refugees are going through trauma and suffering because they lost everything â€” their homes, their loved ones, their belongings â€” and they are lacking the basic informational and educational needs to enhance their wellbeing in camps.Â Â The Syrian refugees are entitled to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal4, which promotes the idea that there should be inclusive, as well as equitable, quality of education and the promotion of lifelong learning opportunities for everyone.Â Â This study employed content analysis and observational methodologies to review copious literature, studies and the UN and UNHCR reports. This study found that refugees lack equal access to education â€” as stated in the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 26 that â€œeveryone has the right to educationâ€â€”Â becausethe Turkish government lacksthe institutional capability to effectively respond to the Syrian refugeesâ€™ educational needs and to manage Syrian refugees facing trauma.Â Refugees lack access to information and to the UNHCR to report ill treatment.Â Â This study hopes to shed light on the psychosomatic needs, the protection needed for the vulnerable population against Sexual and Gender Based violence (SGBV), early child marriage, and others abuses, informational and educational needs of refugees in Syria.
