The Turkey Refugee Response Initiative (TRRI)
Through its publications, events, and locally led projects, the TRRI has shed a light on the vulnerabilities and challenges experienced by Turkey’s refugee communities. Its activities emphasize the continued need not only for strengthened refugee protections but also the prioritization of robust social cohesion efforts that foster intercommunal trust and empathy between host and refugee populations.
