Female Refugees and NGOs in the Perception of Problems and Expectations
Sorunlar ve Beklentilerin Algılanmasında Kadın Mülteciler ve Sivil Toplum Kuruluşları

Asuman ÖZGÜR KEYSAN [1] , Burcu ŞENTÜRK [2]


Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have recently started to play a more active role within the context of migration, dealing with the problems of immigrants extensively across the world. With the Syrian civil war outbreak, national and international NGOs have taken quick steps to operate in various refugee issues in Turkey actively. To date, various studies have been carried out that focus on the status, needs, and problems of Syrian refugees and the position and role of the NGOs in meeting these needs. The present study differs from the others. It aims to analyse the possible differences in the perception of problems of expectations of the refugees possibly existing between the NGOs and the Syrian female refugees. The research is drawn upon in-depth interviews conducted between May and October of 2018 with 83 Syrian refugee women and 64 NGO representatives from 14 NGOs located in Istanbul, Izmir, Konya, Adana, and Gaziantep. This study argues that there is a rift between the refugee women and the NGO representatives in the perception of problems of expectations of the refugees.
Tüm dünyada sivil toplum kuruluşları (STK) göç ve göçmenlerle ilgili konularda etkin olmaya başlamıştır. Suriye’deki iç savaş ile birlikte Türkiye’de ise, mülteci meselesinin çeşitli alanlarında aktif olarak faaliyet gösteren ulusal ve uluslararası STK’lar ortaya çıkmıştır. Bugüne dek, Suriyeli mültecilerin statü, ihtiyaç ve sorunlarına ve STK’ların bu ihtiyaçları karşılamadaki konumu ve rolüne eğilen çeşitli çalışmalar gerçekleştirilmiştir. Bu çalışma diğer çalışmalardan farklı olarak, İstanbul, İzmir, Konya, Adana ve Gaziantep’te yer alan 14 STK’dan 64 STK temsilcisi ve 83 Suriyeli mülteci kadın ile Mayıs-Ekim 2018 tarihleri arasında gerçekleştirilmiş derinlemesine görüşmelere dayanarak, mültecilere yönelik çalışma yapan STK’lar ve bu STK’lardan destek alan mülteci kadınların mülteci olmaya yönelik var olan sorunları algılama biçimleri arasındaki ilişkiyi analiz etmeyi hedeflemektedir. Çalışma STK’lar ile mülteci kadınların sorunları algılamasında bir makas bulunduğunu savunmaktadır.
