While the civil war in Syria has been going on for five years, the situation of asylum seekers still remains extremely difficult. According to the Global Humanitarian Assistance Report of 2015 (p. 38), Turkey is the world’s largest refugee-hosting country and has been since May 2015. The sums that Turkey has spent on hosting Syrian refugees in the last five years amounts to nearly $10 billion. In this regard, Turkey is the country that provides the highest levels of assistance in proportion to its national income.
