Transcript of Syrian Refugee Crisis

Syrian Refugee Crisis
By: Dharma, Anayudit, Amanda, and Maia
Research Summary
- in 2011, a few teenagers painted revolutionary slogans on a school wall in Syria
- the Syrians saw what was happening and many began protesting and eventually becoming violent
- the government fought back, using force and violence
- a civil war was started
- the peace in Syria has been disrupted, including the factors of a well functioning government, acceptance of the rights of others, and good relations with neighboring countries
- the civil war in Syria is causing refugees to flee the country
- neighboring countries are becoming overpopulated, low on resources, and low on funding
- war is destroying the country of Syria and some surrounding countries
- millions are being killed due to malnurishment, violence, and more
- the countries are pleading for help from other parts of the world and no one is answering them
The Problem
Our public policy to restore the peace in Syria:
- use a humanitarian approach
- send in some specialized troops to put an end to the violence
- raise money and awareness to the issues going on in Syria
- help the neighboring countries of Syria by getting them out of debt and rebuilding their supply of resources
- rebuild the destructed cities in Syria
- reunite people with their families and bring them home
Our Solution
