Despite the generous hosting by the Government and people of Jordan of Syrian refugees, more than 650,000 registered Syrian refugees in the country, continue to face a highly uncertain future. They cannot go home, given the ongoing conflict and insecurity in Syria; many of the most vulnerable struggle to find suitable employment that would enable them to support themselves and their families while in Jordan; around 80% reside outside of the camps amongst the host community; and the United Nations (UN) cash assistance programmes that enabled them to make ends meet are increasingly jeopardised by budget cuts. Unfortunately, while refugees’ options are heavily restricted, their needs are not. With their savings exhausted,assets already sold, and borrowing and debt on the rise, despite recently improved access to work opportunities, UN social assistance programmes are helping tens of thousands of registered refugee families make ends meet on a daily basis. It is against this background that our research is set.This study aimed to find out what effects the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) cash assistance has had on beneficiaries’ lives. It had the following objectives: (1) to evaluate beneficiary spending patterns and their effect on family well-being; (2) to evaluate the efficiency, effectiveness and accountability of cash assistance provided by UNHCR and the Child Cash Grant (CCG) provided by the UNICEF; and (3) to evaluate the complementarity of (as well as gaps in) programming by UNICEF, UNHCR and the World Food Programme (WFP) in targeting the most vulnerable groups.

Following the developments at the national level, in February 2017 the Ministry of Labour announced that Syrian refugees living in camps could obtain permits to work anywhere in the country. The Zaatari Employment Office (ZOE) was later established in August 2017 to operationalise this decision, which positively impacts the mobility and the possibility to access jobs of refugees in camps. Run jointly by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and UNHCR, the employment office offers job matching services for camp residents, information on training opportunities, and counselling – and most of all allows refugees to register work permits and leave the camp for up to one month at the time. In this context, there is a need to assess the skills available among the refugee population in Zaatari, and their willingness to take over formal employment opportunities outside the camp.

  Syrian Asylum Applications in Europe


This page is being updated



First time applications for asylum in European countries by Syrians are summarised below. Note that the majority of those who have fled the conflict are hosted in Syria’s neighbouring countries.

In November 2016, the Asylum statistics for Serbia have been updated to show just those applicants that lodged their application. Previously, the only information available was refugees and migrants “intention to seek asylum”, which was significantly higher.

Total Syrian Asylum Applications in Europe

987,571 between Apr 2011 and Sep 2017
137,798 in 2014 only
Note - Data for 37 European countries which provide monthly information to UNHCR. To the extent possible, the figures reflect first time asylum applications, but some of the statistics are likely to include repeated applications (same or different country).
