The article titled “Armenia and the Syrian Refugee Crisis”, co-authored by Luna Atamian and Haykaram Nahapetyan discusses Armenia’s response to the Syrian refugee crisis. Armenia has welcomes third largest number of Syrian refugees as a proportion of total population- 6 Syrian refugees per 1000 inhabitants.
Armenian government has responded to the crisis by offering a wide range of emergency assistance and integration projects- free health insurance, micro-credit scheme and scholarships for instance. To facilitate socio-cultural integration, the “adopt-a-family” project matches the refugees with Armenian host families.
