    Syrian Refugees A snapshot of the crisis – in the middle east and Europe



    According to the European Union, almost 60,000 Syrian refugees have declared political asylum in the European Union since the start of the current conflict in Syria, the majority in Germany and Sweden.



    European Union Case Study

    The European Union (EU) is leading international humanitarian aid to Syria and neighbouring countries, with over €1.5 billion distributed in humanitarian aid as of early November 2013. This amounts to about half of humanitarian aid for the Syria crisis, with the rest covered by the United States and other countries.

    A Migration Policy Centre (MPC) research papers reviews the EU’s response to the Syrian crisis and tracks the numbers of Syrian asylum seekers.

    Released in November 2012.
