Endless Refuge and Unsafe Homecoming

Refugee Protection Watch Report 2022

After eleven years of revolution and war, Syria remains the world’s second largest refugee crisis. Currently, about 6.8 million Syrian refugees are living outside Syria’s borders. Syrian refugees make up one-fifth of the global refugee population. Additionally, another 6.9 million people are internally displaced within Syria. More than half of the Syrian population is still fleeing war and persecution.

Lebanon, as one of the countries neighbouring Syria, has been disproportionately affected by the Syrian forced displacement crisis. Lebanon is currently experiencing overlapping economic, health, and political crises, which have overwhelmed the country’s limited resources and put a huge strain on people who live there. Meanwhile, humanitarian needs for refugees in host countries are at an all-time high, and conditions for safe and dignified return to Syria are still not in place.

This report summarises the findings of different research rounds in Syria and Lebanon that RPW conducted in the past 12 months.
