ILO Response to the Syrian Refugee Crisis in Jordan

The Syrian refugee crisis embodies one of the largest and most protracted humanitarian emergencies of modern times. Since 2011, the bulk of refugees fleeing the conflict in Syria have found refuge among host communities in neighbouring states.

While the bulk of the international community’s response to the on-going Syria crisis has overwhelmingly focused on the humanitarian aspects, the ILO’s strategy is development focused in its support to refugees and host communities in order to preserve social and economic stability at the national level.
