The Research on the Effect of Syrian Crisis on Forced Emigration: Kahramanmaras Case

Ahmet Tambay, Adnan Çelik


This study deals with forced migration caused by Syrian crisis and the effect of Syrian people who were forced to emigrate to Kahramanmaraş on the socio-economic life of the city. In the field application performed via "Bogardus Social Distance Scale" within the framework of the research, it was found out that Kahramanmaraş habitants welcomed Syrian people as guests and would treat them as guests during crisis although they didn't have any ideas regarding the end of crisis and they maintain the idea that Syrian refugees would not return to their country after the end of crisis.
