Turkey / Summary of Focus Group Discussions

This report summarises what 36 Syrians and Afghan refugees living in Istanbul and Gaziantep in Turkey said during discussions with Ground Truth Solutions. Participants said they had little or no knowledge of support available to them, including on resettlement and asylum options. All cited some form of livelihood support as their most important need, while some said they experienced difficulties in Turkey because of their nationality.
