About the event

With the increase of internal turmoil and violence in Syria since 2011, millions of people have been forcibly displaced. Turkey hosts the highest number of displaced people among the countries receiving mass migration. Considering the social, economic, and psychological problems brought about by forced migration, various social cohesion problems can be experienced. One of the most important factors in facilitating social cohesion and social inclusion is the efficient access of migrant children under temporary protection to education. 

The fact that immigrant girls are not sent to school, in particular, increases the number of forced early marriages and/or unofficial marriages as second spouses. In this side event academics from the region were invited to share their understandings and perspectives.
