Integration Process of Syrian Migrant Women Living in Turkey

This research is a master’s thesis to examine the challenges that migrant women face, before and after migration, to find solutions to those challenges, and to offer new social policies to provide a better social integration environment.
Taking migration as a whole concept with its reasons, factors and consequences, the research offers an inclusive perspective to the educational, marital and occupational status of migrant women endeavouring to make a living in Turkey.
As of 2009, the year Turkey and Syria abolished the legal necessity of visas with each other, the number of Syrians migrating to Turkey has excessively increased. In Küçükçekmece district, there had been interviews with migrants,within the scope of the research, finding that Syrian migrants actually aim to return to their country. Leaving this fact aside, Turkey does not seem to be working on a non-refoulement policy.
Fundamental Rights and Liberties of Syrian Migrants Living in Turkey, Governmental Support, and Occupational Life and Social Support are also subjects explained in the research document.
