The war in Syria has had a far-reaching impact beyond its borders. With no signs of peace, many Syrians with ties to Armenia travelled to the country in search of refuge. However, with its overstretched resources and poor economy, Armenia was able to take only some steps to address the needs of those fleeing the conflict. The pressure on the migration services to respond to the influx of refugees also revealed gaps in Armenia’s migration data management system. Armenia’s inability to provide long-term accommodation for many Syrians may create pressures for them to seek better opportunities elsewhere.
