On 17-18 June 2016, the LSE Middle East Centre held a workshop on The long-term challenges of forced migration: perspectives from Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq. This workshop brought together a diverse group of people (policymakers from host states, representatives from international organisations, academics and NGOs practitioners) to explore the effects of the Syrian refugee crisis on Arab host states such as Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Turkey. Among those presenting at the workshop was Emeritus Professor Dawn Chatty, former Director of the Refugee Studies Centre, who spoke about the Syrian humanitarian disaster and the disparity in perceptions and aspirations among forced migrants, members of hosting communities, and humanitarian aid practitioners and policymakers in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey.
Now available online is the set of papers from the workshop, plus a list of key recommendations relevant for all stakeholders and agreed upon by participants.
