Refugees, outcome of the conflicts

By thinking of who would be the one that has been most affected by the sudden growth of the ISIS, people might answer as America which have been facing the threat of terrors from the ISIS and the neighbor countries on Middle East. However, the innocent civilian that became as refugees all in sudden to avoid the violence of militants and the ones that are actually facing the threat of death right at this moment are what it could be answered as the outcome of this unstable international security situation.

What has brought from the response toward the ISIS forces, it has brought more than 70,000 refugees crossing the border between Syria and Turkey in the first 24 hours after Ankara has been opened in favor of take caring the innocent civilians. Alan Duke from CNN has written that Turkey has opened eight checkpoints along its border in order to allow refugees trapped between the fighting. The threat over the northern Syrian city of Kobani is growing due to the battle of intensity. McGrath from the international business times stated that ‘Ankara’s policy shift led to thousands of people, some very young, others very old and many of them women, crossing into Turkey’s southeastern border village of Dikemtas under tight security on Friday.’

The generosity of Turkey’s policy on take caring the refugees shows the good need on gathering international support to the neighboring countries on hosting them as ISIS has became the crucial international issue. The immediate supplies of relief items and donations from the United Nation are also cooperating the help on the innocent victims from the militant.

Sam Frizell from sees the behaviors of the refugees on Turkey as traumatic. Even though they have moved into safer spot under the guide, the side effect of the fear on ISIS brought the uncommon behavior on the refugees disrupting their life style. The propaganda of the ISIS, how much they are cruel and ruthless to the innocent people is counted to be one of the causes on traumatic reaction to the refugees. People really do tend to afraid the militants and has been accepted as very real. Sam also adds that these seem to be creating this massive movement of people right now with great fear.

When there is noticeable conflicts on international society, there are always outcome of innocent civilians turning into the refugees that are affected the most, injured the most and who have lost the most. The media tend to focus on how great numbers of refugees have moved to Turkey in short period, however people should give a round of applause on the decision that Turkey have made on people who needs the urgent help.

  1. The refugee problem in the Middle East has been an issue for many years, and with the Syrian Civil War and the rise of ISIS it is dramatically getting worse than ever. The ensuing conflicts are pushing people out of the regions.

  2. This is a good evaluation of the way Turkey has been handling the issues of refugees but i think it would be a good idea to look into the role of Turkeys borders on both sides of the issue. Turkeys borders have traditional been some of the most porous in the world and prone to vast amounts of smuggling to the european market. it might be a good idea to look into how these policies of opening borders to refugees has an effect on the organizations profiting off the smuggling of illicit goods over the border, most specifically the role of ISIS in the smuggling of black market oil


    • was able to see the other side of the Turkeys borders that I did not know, thanks! I guess the disadvantage of easily letting illicit goods became advantage of easily letting refugees in for help this time


  3. I am very glad that you cast light upon the refugee issue. It seems that little people cares about the actual damage that has been put on the innocent civilians; me neither, I did not know that Turkey has that generous policy to take care of the refugees. I also worry that the air raid to damage ISIS can also leave a huge damage to the civilians in the area, not just physically but also mentally as you mentioned. A great amount of help in the level of international units may be needed to reconstruct the human settlement in Syria even after ISIS has removed.

    • Thanks, and I do agree that great amount of help is needed to reconstruct the human settlement in Syria and people are bringing this upon due to the recent issue of ISIS, also I personally think that people like us had to recognize the other causes of refugee problems even before this ISIS brought up the issue of refugees, pretty sure that there were more news that we couldn’t hear from the media.


  4. The refugee situation in the Middle East is in my opinion one of the biggest crisis of today. I enjoyed your blog post, and love learning more about the issue. I think it’s very interesting to read your post after having read Jesse’s post when doing a case comparison on Turkey and comparing it to the material we have learned in class. Jesse’s post describes Turkey’s indecisiveness when it came to how to deal with countering ISIS, showing a realist response to the situation as the country attempts to figure out what will benefit it the most. However, in the instance of the refugees on this particular issue, you illustrate that Turkey has taken a pretty defiant stance on the issue to help those trying to flee the chaos.This clearly is not a realist response since the refugees provide no benefit to Turkey (well except a round of applause as you describe from the international community) and will more than likely burden the country economically (as has happened in Jordan and other countries with high refugee populations). It is interesting to see a country respond to two different issues in the same crises completely differently. I think your two’s cases studies prove how countries do not always abide by and follow only one theory in international relations.
