Syrian Refugees in Europe



UNHCR has published a list of the number of Syrian refugees European countries and other western countries are willing to accommodate. As you can see from the diagram above the figure Europe has agreed to is quite small compared to Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan, Iraq, and Egypt. Below is a full list of the exact number pledged. Ireland has only agreed to take 310 refugees. When I wrote about this issue previously Ireland had only pledged 90 places, so at least there has been a slight increase on that figure. Germany has doubled the number of places – from 10,000 to 20,000. A detailed report from the UNHCR about this issue is available here.
