Over 5 million refugees from Syria have sought safety across Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey from the on-going conflict, with local communities, civil society groups, established refugee communities, and faith-based organisations providing essential assistance, solidarity and support to refugees. However, little is known regarding the motivations, nature and impacts of such ‘local responses’ to conflict-induced displacement. The Refugee Hosts project has been exploring such responses through interdisciplinary research in Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey.
