Article draws on briefing analysis to determine how host and donor governments help Syrian refugees
In the recent article 'Here's Which Countries Are Helping Syria's Refugee Crisis – And Which Ones Are Refusing', Business Insider examines the support provided to refugees from Syria, both by neighbouring countries and by governments in the West.
Drawing on figures in the policy briefing, it contrasts the situation in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Iraq – who, with Egypt, host the vast majority of Syrian refugees – with the approach taken by most Western countries, whose governments have prioritised humanitarian aid to the region over offering long-term protection to refugees.
