If Jordan is to confront its national challenges and continue to provide a safe haven for Syrian refugees, the country will depend on increased international support.
European governments are reacting differently to the refugee crisis. An agreement among European member states is a necessary step in facing the emergency.
The Syrian refugee crisis is no longer a short-term regional issue: it is a long-term international problem that deserves a coordinated answer, especially from the EU.
The resettlement of Syrian refugees is a task best carried out on the basis of need and ability, not by sectarian or ethnic preference.
Today, Lebanon hosts more Syrian refugees than any other country in the world, nearly 38 percent of the total Syrian refugee population.
Even if the Syrian conflict were to be viewed solely through a security prism, the international community’s tepid response to the humanitarian crisis is counterproductive.
