Beth Ferris Documents Syrian Refugee Crisis at Camps in Turkey

Fred Dews

Over 450,000 registered refugees from Syria’s civil war are estimated to be living in Turkey. Hundreds of thousands more have fled to Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq, in addition to the over 4.25 million internally displaced persons inside Syria. Elizabeth Ferris, senior fellow and co-director of the Brookings-LSE Project on Internal Displacement, visited refugee camps in Turkey last week along with Kemal Kirişci. A sample of her thoughts and photographs during this journey appears below.
