“What of our unfulfilled promises?” Situational Assessment and Policy Brief on Syrian women refugees’ experiences in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq

Women for Women International have been working with Syrian refugees living in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq since 2017. Over this time, we have provided socio-economic training and space for community building as durable solutions to address displacement and heightened economic insecurity. In May 2022, Women for Women International spoke with 112 women in three refugee camps in the KRI (Basirma, Darashakran, and Kawargorsk) via surveys, focus group discussions, and interviews. The objective of these conversations was to better understand their current experiences and primary challenges, identify any promising support mechanisms, and to listen to their self-articulated hopes for their future.
