Abstract:

The Syrian uprising, which began in March 2011 and turned into a civil war in a short period of time, caused the largest refugee crisis of the last quarter-century under the UNHCR mandate. Besides the humanitarian dimension of the issue, it brought about crucial impacts in the context of 'widened security' as well as traditional-military security. The impacts of refugees in host countries raised prominent concerns for both neighboring states and the Europe. Turkey, as the largest refugee hosting country worldwide by the year 2017, witnesses these impacts thoroughly. The aim of this thesis is to analyze the impacts of Syrians on Turkey with the widened and deepened security approach provided by the Copenhagen School.
