Syrian Refugee Response: Evolving Protection Challenges

The Syrian refugee crisis represents one of the greatest humanitarian challenges the international community has faced over recent years, prompting record-high levels of international assistance and programming. The ongoing conflict has generated the displacement of over two million refugees since the beginning of the conflict, resulting in one of the largest, regional refugee crises in recent history. It is projected by UNHCR that by end of 2014, the total refugee population in the region, particularly in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, and Iraq, could reach up to four million people.
