This webinar includes a part of the research from the book of Murat Yarimay, who works as a social worker within Kilis Municipality, and a part of COREnet member Duygu Altinoluk’s research on migration and Syrian women, an area she has been working on for three years.

We aim to see how young Syrian women in Kilis, which borders the Syrian city of Aleppo, rebuild their lives in Turkey. We are opening a discussion by seeking answers to basic questions such as what Syrian women face and what they have difficulty with within Turkey, which is governed by a republic with a different regime from Syria. Turkey, one end of the Middle East, moved towards the West and became a secular country under the influence of the Republic. Although the last government emphasized the extreme right and Islamism, the impact of the Republic’s achievements and human rights and freedoms on women is inevitable. Based on this, the effects of this structure on young Syrian women and their experiences in the family and public sphere will be shared.


  • Murat Yarimay (independent researcher, and belongs to Kilis Municipality): A research on young women’s experiences strengthened by migration (Göçle Güçlenen Genç Kadın Deneyimleri Üzerine Bir Araştırma);
  • Duygu Altinoluk (me): Experiences of young women right beside Syria: Comparison of everyday life between different cities. (Suriye’nin yanıbaşında genç kadınların deneyimleri: Farklı şehirler arasında günlük yaşamın karşılaştırılması).
