Lives on Hold: Challenges Facing Assyrian Refugees
Tens of thousands of Assyrians forcibly displaced from their homes in Iraq and Syria are now seeking resettlement in neighboring countries including Jordan, Turkey, and Lebanon. Assyrian refugees face unique challenges in displacement, and their specific needs often go unaddressed by international actors. Their wait for resettlement is characterized by limited information, uncertainty about their futures, and a growing sense of hopelessness. For many Assyrian refugees, the prolonged state of limbo has made the future difficult to imagine. Protracted displacement and monotonous lifestyles have had a negative impact on the mental health of refugees and may have long-term consequences.
