The Syrian refugee conflict has displaced over 2 million refugees. Over 600,000 are currently residing in the Republic of Turkey, where the government has extended them temporary protection. Under the temporary protection regime refugees in Turkey do not benefit from the provisions of the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees. In light of the growing number of Syrian refugees crossing into Turkish territory and their clear needs for protection, the question emerges why Turkey has not lifted the geographical limitation it maintains to the Convention, providing Syrian refugees with a legal status and allowing UNHCR resettlement procedures. The thesis argues that the reservation Turkey maintains to the Convention is in violation of certain international human rights law provisions and thus defies the object and purpose of the Convention.
