One of the Civil Society Organizations Platform projects, Himaye, works to solve the legal issues Syrian refugees face in Turkey. Through systematic efforts, it aims to raise legal awareness among refugees, establish an effective communication mechanism to receive and solve their problems and provide professional documentation of the cases they encounter to advocate for improvements in the legal environment.

The project aims to support the harmonization of Syrian refugees in Turkey, as legal issues pose a significant barrier to their integration into Turkish society and their achievement of social concordance. Recently, there has been a sharp increase in legal problems faced by refugees, whether due to discrimination, lack of legal awareness, or bureaucratic issues with Turkish authorities.

 

The project has three main work streams:

Legal Awareness: Informing refugees about their rights and duties, raising their awareness of legal ways to solve problems they face, and encouraging them to initiate the regularization of their legal status in Turkey to increase their positive contribution to society. This is done through the use of new media and conducting awareness seminars.

 

Case Management and Dealing with them: Creating an effective communication mechanism to receive refugees’ problems and work on solving them by providing the necessary legal advice, mediating efforts by communicating with relevant Turkish official entities, or resorting to the judiciary.

 

Preparing Reports and Advocating for Legal Environment Improvement: Preparing professional reports of cases faced by refugees, in cooperation with specialists, to use these reports to communicate with responsible Turkish entities and advocate for an improved legal environment for Syrian refugees in Turkey.
