In the face of calamities and conflicts, the imperative of migration intensifies. Consider Syria, a nation embroiled in turmoil since 2011 and later struck by devastating earthquake, it's believed that the ripple effect of these tragedies has led to an exodus of over 6 million people. Alongside this staggering number, millions have found themselves temporarily uprooted, while others have resettled internally, seeking solace in newfound havens within their homeland.

The tapestry of Syrian migration continued to evolve in 2023, marked by fresh dynamics and shifting sands. Within Syria, places like As-Suwayda emerged as new epicenters of movement, while on the international stage, Turkey recalibrated its role in this ever-unfolding human drama. Meanwhile, Lebanon found itself in a relative standstill when it came to resettlement activities, adding yet another nuanced layer to this intricate web of displacement.

The ensuing report delves deeply into the intricate pathways and starting points of migration. Beyond just charting routes, it seeks to unpack the motivations propelling these journeys, spotlighting the ultimate destinations and the nuanced dynamics of these travelers' tragedies.

Primarily tailored for local and international actors deeply engaged in Syrian migration issues, this report serves as both a geographical lens and a temporal compass. It endeavors to provide a synchronously nuanced mapping of the evolving landscape, capturing the immediacy of the conditions at hand.
