While Refugees & Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) often result from conflict, if the needs of both displaced people and host communities are not addressed, displacement itself may produce further instability. This publication specifically examines lessons from Syria's ongoing refugee crisis in the Middle East and Europe, drawing on insights from prior situations of displacement to inform response to current crises. click here to download SOLLIMS Sampler
