Since the beginning of the riots in Syria in 2011, the Syrian civil war has culminated into a
major refugee crisis. According to the estimates of Amnesty International, more than 50%
of Syria‟s population is currently displaced. More than 4 million refugees from Syria are in
Syrian neighboring countries, but most of them are trying to get in Europe to achieve their
goal for safer and peaceful life. But not only Syrians are participating in this refugee
influx. There are also Afghans, Iraqis, Moroccans, Iranians, Libyans, Pakistanis,
Palestinians and other nationalities from the Middle East who are fleeing from their homes.
Due to past terrorist acts that occurred on European soil, and due to the threats of the
Islamic state of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) that they will attack in Europe, some states change
their policy towards refugees because of fear that ISIS members may be infiltrated among
them Although they know that most of them are fleeing precisely because of ISIS. In the
struggle to protect their country and their citizens, some states forget that inhumane
treatment may negatively reflect upon the security of the state.
This paper aims to show a descriptive analysis of the situation in Syria through the prism
of Syrian refugees, as well as to show the suffering experienced by refugees on their route
to Europe.
Key words: refugee crisis, security, threats, humanity
