The situation of Syrian refugee youth in Jordan


With the support of the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), the Information and Research Center – King Hussein Foundation (IRCKHF) had been given the opportunity to fill a gap in highlighting the particular challenges faced by Syrian refugee youth and the consequences of a lack of strategic focus on this group, on the youth themselves, their community and hosting countries (specifically Jordan):
Raise the profile/draw attention to the situation of Syrian refugee youth across Jordan by providing new research on: (i) the general situation of Syrian youth pre-displacement especially concerning protection, education, social/civic engagement, and livelihoods; (ii) the distinct issues faced/raised by Syrian youth in displacement due to the interruption to development and lack of opportunities/barriers; (iii) comparison of the challenges and similarities faced by Syrian and host community youth in Jordan; and (iv) the coping mechanism adopted by Syrian youth with case studies of both positive and negative consequences and examples of youth programming.
