Out-of-camp but not out of mind: Supporting Syrian refugees in Jordan’s cities
The Syrian displacement crisis is entering its tenth year. Over one million Syrians have settled in Jordan, the majority of whom live in urban and peri-urban areas, others in Zaatari and Azraq refugee camps. A lot of attention has gone to the challenges faced by in-camp refugees, but those based in cities and rural areas are vulnerable in ways that also need attention. With no end in sight to the Syrian crisis, bolstering support for out-of camp refugees could make a difference in the lives of more than 80 per cent of Syrians in Jordan.
