Syria

More than 100,000 people have been killed in the Syrian conflict. Almost two million have been forced to flee the country, most now living in refugee camps in neighbouring states. At least four million more have had to leave their homes because of the fighting and have become refugees in their own country.

Despite all this, remarkable numbers of journalists, civil society activists and human rights defenders in Syria continue working despite the perils they face.

As the conflict in Syria deepens, IWPR is extending its long-running programme to strengthen independent local voices and contribute to accountability and human rights in this extremely dangerous environment.
