Given these dire conditions, many refugees want to return back to their homes in Syria. However for the majority it isn’t possible for these reasons:
- It is likely that your home either has been destroyed during the conflict, or is occupied.
- You fear for your safety if you return. There is political and sectarian harassment and violence. You risk being disappeared or killed.
- You face forced military conscription.
- Women face rape at the hands of various militia groups on all sides.
There are no assurances of safety. There is no meaningful peace process, and there is no accountability for war crimes. Without these it will be very difficult for the 6million Syrians refugees to return home safely.
