Impacts of COVID-19 pandemic on informal jobs and housing conditions among citizens and Refugees: The Case of Izmir, Turkey 

Turkey hosts the world’s largest refugee population: 4 million people, including 3.6 million Syrians. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Turkish government has enforced key public health measures such as lockdowns, travel restrictions and self-isolation to curb the spread of the virus. This paper aims to understand the broader socio-economic impacts of the pandemic and government responses by comparing the consequences generated by COVID-19 for low-income Turkish citizens and Syrian refugees in Izmir, Turkey. The study aspires to understand the perceptions and experiences of both groups about the pandemic, with particular reference to its effects on informal jobs and housing. The study benefits from 30 key informant interviews conducted as part of an ongoing interdisciplinary research project titled “Wellbeing, Housing and Infrastructure in Turkey”, funded by the British Academy.  The paper shows that COVID-19 measures have negatively affected the socio-economic situation of migrants as well as of Turkish citizens. While the official unemployment rate stands at 12%, many reports estimate that the (unemployment) rate is higher. Moreover, almost 85% of the Syrians and a substantial share of Turkish citizens work as part of informal economy. Therefore, findings suggest that measures introduced by law aiming to prevent termination of employment contracts by the employers on unjustified grounds have not been effective on these groups. Additionally, we witness a deepening of precarious, informal housing conditions for an expanding group of under-employed or unemployed low-income Syrian refugees and Turkish citizens, generating important wellbeing failures.

Smart Phones : The only friend and guide of refugees on their perilous journey

Ayselin YILDIZ, Yasar University, Turkey

UNESCO Chair on International Migration

Smart phones are not only the facilitators of our lives and but also the connectors between societies and ideas all over the world. Despite their contributions to the development of humankind, they also constitute a challenge if used for immoral purposes which might threaten the security of information and our lives as well.

While the “security” and “smart phones” are mostly associated within a negative context, smart phones have totally a different role in refugees and migrants’ lives; they are the source of survival. Referring to the interviews I have conducted with several refugees and migrants (Syrians, Afghans, Pakistanis, Iraqis, Eritreans) transiting Turkey to reach Europe, smart phones are mentioned as lifesavers on their perilous journeys; to contact smugglers, to find out routes, to inform their followers about the next border crossings and to check-in for announcing safe arrival to the targeted destinations. Having left all their belongings back in the ruined homes, having lost their family members somewhere on their journey, smart phones are their only friend and guide on the dramatic and lonely journey of survival.
