This briefing paper provides an overview of Syrian refugees’ diverse displacement trajectories to Tunisia after 2011, revealing differences between Syrian arrivals in terms of the timing of their travel, socioeconomic profiles, journeys, and settlement patterns in Tunisia, which in turn impact integration outcomes.
A better understanding of the heterogeneous nature of the Syrian community in Tunisia will allow policymakers and aid providers to tailor existing support to Syrians’ specific needs and livelihood strategies. Whereas “early” Syrian refugees generally have better integration outcomes, it is often those who came later who need better outreach and support.Download
