The Syrian civil war, which began nine years ago, has been a continuous tragedy for Syrians. Neighboring Turkey has welcomed more than four million refugees from Syria and elsewhere, thus becoming the country hosting the largest refugee population in the world. Turkey has invested significantly to respond to the needs of 3.6 million Syrian refugees living in Turkey, providing them with humanitarian and social assistance, education, health and other services.

The US Atlantic Council in Turkey is organizing a round-table discussion at the European Parliament in Brussels to discuss the implementation of the EU-Turkey statement, the way forward in EU-Turkey relations, as well as the findings of the Atlantic Council IN TURKEY’s refugee report launched in New York in September 2018 during the UNGA week. The discussion will be hosted by Anna Maria Corazza Bildt, member of the EU-Turkey Joint Parliamentary Committee and co-chair of the European Parliament Turkey Forum.
