Syrian Refugees

Syrian Refugees started in 2013 and has been updated until 2016. The project, created by Migration Policy Centre (MPC) offered a snapshot of the repercussions of the refugee crisis for the European Union.

The website offered key data on the conflict, combined with a series of studies conducted by local researchers on behalf of the MPC

Syrian Refugees aimed to paint a broad picture of the worst refugee crisis to affect the region in years.
