"Syrian refugees are held by the Jordanians for questions regarding their identities at an unofficial crossing point at the border between Syria and Jordan at Sharjarh, Jordan, April 10, 2013. Thousands of Syirans are crossing into Jordan each day across unofficial border points between the two countries, as Syrians flee ongoing fighting in their country. The United Nations estimates that the number of Syrian refugees is currently over one million, most of whom are living in neighboring countries, straining the resources of host countries."- Lynsey Addario

Well Syria shot themselves in the foot on that one. Three things why their "president" (Dictator) is not very good. 1. He is very power hungry and selfish. 2. He uses CHEMICAL weapons on HIS OWN PEOPLE yeah the people are sure going to vote for you on relection day. 3. He is very inmature and is in no shape to run a country or even his own life. Back to the refuges I think that yes there will be a lot of them, but at least they won't be a open target in their own houses anymore. Jordan please take these people in as your own. They have a bad leader who seems like hurting the people who build your coiuntry is okay.

Provides further insight on the migration of many Syrian refugees (UN estimates there are over 1 million) who are constantly on the move for they are being threatened/unable to return home/are in no-man's-land stuck in between Jordan and Syria, etc.

Kyle Rutherford's curator insight, November 12, 2014 5:38 PM

The Syrian refugees were influenced by a major push factor: war. Refugees are people who are forced to migrate from their home country and cannot return for fear of persecution because of their race, religion, nationality, membership in a social group, or political opinion. They hope to seek asylum in Jordan until war in their home country ceases but Jordan is running out of supplies to support these refugees.

Unit 2: Population and Migration


This article features an interactive map that displays the numbers of IDPs (internally displaced persons) made by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. You are able to look through the years and see the varying amounts of IDPs, as well as the countries that produced the most of them and which continue to.


This goes along with the human geography theme of refugees and IDPs, and this is a very helpful article in providing a simple way to see an overview of where and to what extent this most occurs.
