Turkey’s geographical position makes it a first reception and transit country for many refugees and migrants. As the result of an unprecedented influx of people seeking refuge, the country currently hosts around 3 million registered Syrian refugees and is making commendable efforts to provide them with humanitarian aid and support. The EU is committed to assist Turkey in dealing with this challenge. The EU-Turkey Statement, which was issued on 18 March 2016, reconfirmed both parties' commitment to the implementation of the EU-Turkey joint action plan activated on 29 November 2015.

A hearing will be organized by the EESC to examine different aspects of protection which Turkey offers to refugees, from the point of view of civil society organisations (CSOs). Particular attention will be devoted to evaluating economic, social and humanitarian conditions of refugees in the country and new areas of cooperation will be explored.
