Focus Group Discussions (FDG) were held in Mafraq governorate in November 2017 with Syrian refugees as part of UNHCR’s Post Distribution Monitoring efforts. Participants were separated into three different groups (Table 1). Fifty-five percent of the focus group participants were Syrian males and 45% were Syrian females. Across the three FGDs, participants had one overarching concern – shelter. All participants, whether receiving cash assistance or recently cancelled from assistance, were worried about their ability to pay rent and their corresponding fear of eviction. Participants, especially those in the cash receiving group, believed that landlords had raised their rents due to the belief that UNHCR was paying their rent. Participants from all the FGDs called for an increase in cash assistance, for winterization to be provided to all groups, including those in the waiting list, and to have UNHCR assist them in identifying job opportunities.

  Highlights

UNHCR participated in the First International Youth Culture Conference under the theme “Bridging Differences through Sports & Media” from 27 to 29 November 2017. The conference aims at promoting, sustaining, and understanding dialogue between different cultures through appreciation of diversity. The conference brings together sports teams of refugees, host community, and journalists from around the world to promote peaceful coexistence.
06 Dec 2017
A UNHCR football team has been competing in the Fourth Alexandria International Football Tournament, in which refugees and UNHCR staff played together against Alexandria Sporting Club, Egypt Media and Journalists, and Ukraine teams. It provided the team with the opportunity to engage in in a sporting spirit in informal discussions, with local and international media networks, and opened the door for a better understanding of the refugees' situation and conditions in the host country.
06 Dec 2017
In commemoration of the #16DaysofActivism Campaign, a six-kilometer-long Marathon will be held on 8 December to raise awareness about Gender-Based Violence. UNHCR’s fourth marathon in Alexandria aims to engage different communities through sport to highlight important issues that touch their lives. This year's theme “Leave No One Behind” - promoting inclusion of all - perfectly fits with the sporting essence of this event: it will include the host community, refugees and asylum seekers living in Alexandria of different nationalities and ages. The event is in collaboration with local running sports group Alex Marathon
06 Dec 2017
UNHCR participated in the World Youth Forum in Sharm El Sheikh. Young refugees got the chance to share their stories.
08 Nov 2017
A one-day consultation workshop on ‘Adolescent and Youth Programming in a Humanitarian Context’ within the framework of the Regional Refugee and Resilience Plan (3RP) took place today in Cairo on 18 October. The workshop, organized jointly by UNHCR and UNICEF provided an opportunity to improve the knowledge and understanding of the extent to which the current 3RP responses serve youth and adolescents in key sectors and build the capacity of partners.

  Syrian Asylum Applications in Europe


This page is being updated



First time applications for asylum in European countries by Syrians are summarised below. Note that the majority of those who have fled the conflict are hosted in Syria’s neighbouring countries.

In November 2016, the Asylum statistics for Serbia have been updated to show just those applicants that lodged their application. Previously, the only information available was refugees and migrants “intention to seek asylum”, which was significantly higher.

Total Syrian Asylum Applications in Europe

987,571 between Apr 2011 and Sep 2017
137,798 in 2014 only
Note - Data for 37 European countries which provide monthly information to UNHCR. To the extent possible, the figures reflect first time asylum applications, but some of the statistics are likely to include repeated applications (same or different country).
