The experiences of Syrian Christian and Druze Refugees in Jordan

Migration Research Unit publishes Kat Eghdamian’s Policy Brief

The experiences of Syrian Christian and Druze Refugees in Jordan

In the light of growing debates, challenges, and opportunities relating to the current 'refugee crisis', UCL Geography PhD researcher, Kat Eghdamian, has written an urgent Policy Brief, published on-line by UCL's Migration Research Unit, which outlines the experiences of religious minorities among the Syrian refugee population in Jordan.

The Policy Brief summaries key research findings for humanitarian actors offering assistance and protection to religious minorities among Syrian refugees in Jordan. It also proposes a number of ways in which humanitarian actors may engage with religious identity through both the language and practices of humanitarianism.

The research was conducted as part of Kat’s graduate work at the University of Oxford and now forms the basis of her doctoral project at UCL, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
