Syrian refugees in regional and global context: protection, insecurity and governance

Hosted by the Conflict Research Group

Hybrid public event, United Kingdom

Syrian refugees in regional and global context: protection, insecurity and governance is a one-day conference of academics and policy-makers organised by the Conflict Research Group at LSE IDEAS, the in-house foreign policy think tank of the London School of Economics.  

After over a decade of war, crisis and authoritarianism, Syria continues to have one of the world’s largest refugee populations. With little prospect in sight for a return to stable conditions inside the country, its refugee populations face a range of on-going hardships and challenges. 

A majority of Syria’s refugee population remain in the Middle East, notably Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan –all countries facing accelerating socioeconomic problems of their own. Furthermore, a series of intensifying global shocks are now unfolding, including the Ukraine-Russia War and the starkly different response to its refugee crisis in European states. 

Against this background this one-day conference will consider the lessons, legacies and current trajectories facing Syrian refugees, and the links (in terms of geopolitical alignments, civil society activity and migration governance) to the Russian war on Ukraine.
