Omar Kadkoy – TEPAV

The access of Syrians to the labor markets in the neighboring countries of Syria remains a policy-sensitive issue seven years into an ongoing civil war. In this presentation, we go briefly through the region to showcase the initiatives and policy updates related to Syrians’ access to the national labor markets. Then, we cover the state of play in Turkey in terms of legislation, Syrians in the labor market, and finally, we cover the case of Syrian entrepreneurs in the subjects of capital, sector breakdown, location, and what it means for the economy of Turkey.
