The issue offers a timely analytical intervention on the changing nature of the global refugee and immigration regime in response to the Syrian crisis. In this sense, the real plight of the 'pariah' is not just being driven from home.
Politics and Policy
Syrian Refugees and the European Union
The European Union will provide Turkey with 3 billion euros in financial aid to address the needs of Syrian refugees housed in the country. 6 “Syrian Refugees: A snapshot of the crisis – in the Middle East and Europe.” See http://syrianrefugees.eu.
Guests to Neighbours: The Difficulty of Naming Syrians in Turkey

Under the existing legal framework, school attendance is based on the decision of Syrian parents and is not compulsory. However, this is a way to exercise state power contrary to the public opinion of the people in Turkey.
The Politics of Mobility on Lesvos, Greece
A Critical Scholarly View from The Beach, The Camp, and The City
Using the concept of the politics of mobility, I highlight some of the surprising ways that access to the mobility and treatment of Syrian refugees varied across different spaces in Lesvos. After a brief description of the context, the paper focuses on three locations - the beach, the camp and the city - that represent the arrival, stay and departure from Lesvos in order to draw attention to the series of transitions in politics. of the mobility that unfolded during the immigrants'. Pickers take the tire and motor, but not always the plywood that forms the floor of the boat.
While strict border controls at airports and land borders make migration difficult, policies to register refugees and allow their onward migration through Europe indicate an acceptance of Syrian refugee mobility. But to ensure a successful departure, Syrian refugees typically boarded the dinghies in the dark, early morning hours and hid away from the beaches until the appointed time. However, there were still concerns regarding the safety of the boat and its passage across the Aegean Sea.
I was initially startled by this combination of messages, as the camp was one of the only ones. Due to the amount of refugees wanting to leave Lesvos, tickets often had to be purchased a day or two in advance, meaning planning the onward journey required a few additional days on Lesvos.
Syrian Refugees’ Reception in Southern Europe: The Shifting Content of the Right
Chiara Denaro *
In the following pages, it is articulated with: i) access to the territory, ii) access to the asylum application process and the granting of refugee status; iii) access to the first admission. One of the foundations of the academic debate on the right to asylum in Europe is the question of "access to international protection", which seems to be the subject of debate today due to the development of border regimes that lead to In this context, my purpose is to shed light on the content of the right to asylum in border areas and to try to make sense of it empirically.
The first point in the access to asylum is the access to the territory of the country that could provide international protection. The third issue is access to the asylum procedures, which lead to the determination of the individual claim and the determination of refugee status. Food was suspended due to insufficient supplies compared to the number of people hosted in the camp.
According to the Comisión Espanola de Ayuda al Refugiado (CEAR), the main criticism of the reception system in Spain was related to the systemic delay in the asylum process. On the other hand, the lack of access to the asylum procedure, status recognition and the inadequacy of reception conditions support the voiding of the right to asylum.
Performing the Migration
Nevertheless, they worry about their future in Turkey because of the uncertainty surrounding their legal status. He broadcasts a program called Oud Rozana, and every week he hosts one of the Syrian musicians living in Turkey. Most of the repertoire was from the traditional music of Aleppo, as they are from this city.
From the accent of the audience, it is understood that most of the audience also comes from Aleppo. And the profits of the concert went to an organization called the House of Syrian Culture in Istanbul. They are also still suffering from the trauma of attacks carried out by radical Islamists.
They are also aware of the forced displacement of Yazidis with Turkish citizenship in the 1980s and 1990s to Iraq or Europe.

Migration as a Necessity: Contextualising the European
Response to the Syrian Exodus
Nergis Canefe *
As a result, people who cross borders, or people born in the country but of foreign parents, themselves become subjects of the supposed convergence between international and internal security. The question of who is responsible for those arriving has once again ignited deep internal divisions among EU member states. Ultimately, the ethic of care emphasizes relationships as fundamental to a person's sense of being and identifies emotions.
But in reality, the entire enterprise within international refugee protection is built on precisely that premise. Therefore, people and organizations can intentionally or unintentionally contribute to diminishing the normative principle of responsibility for the well-being of others in society. A substantiated, deeper reconfiguration of the framework for migration and asylum would actually have to deliver much more than strengthening existing policies.
These countries are neither wealthy nor have protection regimes that prioritize legal processing as a matter of maintaining the rule of law in the country. Of the various ethical perspectives available to discuss ethics in the context of migration, rule of law positivism does not suffice if migration as a necessity is the starting point.
Commentary on Canada’s Reception of Syrian Refugees
Howard Adelman *
Elaboration on the Costs versus Benefits of Resettling Refugees As Canada developed a more sophisticated economy far more dependent on
The overwhelming evidence is that refugees, as well as immigrants, are a net benefit to the Canadian economy over the long term, despite initial obstacles when they first settle in Canada.
The Role of the Media
But there is still significant payback, especially for the next generation, born of and raised by these immigrants and refugees. Moreover, there is absolutely no evidence of a causal link between Germany's generosity towards Syrian refugees and the rise of ISIS. Especially when those carrying Syrian passports commit atrocities, this leads to bad public relations for the influx and resettlement of refugees.
Hopefully, enlightened minds and deep institutional practices will overcome that perceived threat, as they did when a group opposed the admission of Indo-Chinese refugees, not just on racist grounds, but because of the alleged fear that governments and foreign bodies will use indo. -Resettling Chinese refugees to infiltrate Canada with communist spies. This turned out to be completely false in the case of the Indo-Chinese, but in the case of my Jewish immigrant and refugee community years ago, a very few, usually the second generation, turned out to develop as communist spies, but the numbers were so small and the proportion making so great a contribution to Canada so exceedingly great, that the risk turned out to be heavily weighted towards taking too little risk.
The Global Responsibility to Refugees
Generosity meant that the government sponsored the influx of no more than 2,000 of the more than 4 million Syrian refugees in 2015, i.e. 0.00005% of the Syrian refugee population at the time. But that did not mean, the government insisted, that members of the PMO were processing files. The pinnacle of modernity in Canada was the acceptance of the Indochinese refugees in this country in what is known as the Boat People Movement.
The leadership of the private sponsorship movement viewed this initiative as a real threat to the successful sponsorship and integration of the Indochinese refugees. Operation Intellectual Kneecapping had been a success with relatively little effort on the part of the refugee activists.8 The credit went to the enlightened corporate leaders. It was an example of the new reliance on networks to get things done, a method that activists developed in the 1960s.
The government then backed away from the ratio by allocating 40% of the 10,000 to government sponsorship, while leaving 60% to private sponsorship. After all, it took a huge effort to get to 30,000 in the last round, just over 1% of the Syrian refugee population at the time.

The Nepali chapter is called "Stuck in the Middle" and deals with Dalits, mostly in the Terai region, who have been excluded from Nepal's citizenship base, which is skewed in favor of the Nepali-speaking upper caste. Because they are not recognized as citizens, they remain in the "shadow of the sunrise." In Myanmar, the Rohingya people live under religious persecution and are deprived of their civil rights, leaving them as exiles into the unknown. In Serbia, "Waiting for Life" are displaced Roma from Kosovo who came to Serbia in the late 1990s during the Bosnian crisis.
After independence, their right to land was not recognized, as was their place in the Kenyan census. During colonialism as after independence, many immigrants came or were brought to Ivory Coast to help them in a nation-building process, but in 1972 laws were passed that gave the right to blood rather than land, and the immigrants, especially the Dioula from the north, lived a life " unsettled by others". In the Dominican Republic, Haitians brought in as contract labor in the sugar plantations also lived a similarly ambivalent existence that can be described as "I am, I am not." Although Greg Constantine's book predates the current crisis, he has a section at the end where he encapsulates other countries, showing that statelessness is indeed the scourge of the times.
It captures the lines of wisdom etched into the faces of those who remember, the sparkles in the eyes of children playing in the ruins that now represent their home, the smiles of camaraderie that keep them alive with hope. His photographs also tell stories of stark contrast expressed in black-and-white images: thousands of Rakhine Buddhists marching together in an anti-Rohingya demonstration in Sittwe, opposite the hopelessness carved into the faces of 12 Rohingya men who wanted to flee to Malaysia, detained at the border guards in Bangladesh.
