Turkey is still known as the country that hosts the highest number of Syrian refugees in the world, the majority of which consist of women and children. In response to the emergent needs of education for refugee children, two large projects, Conditional Cash Transfer for Education for Syrians and Other Refugees, and Project on Promoting Integration of Syrian Kids into the Turkish Education System, started to be implemented. In this policy brief, the two projects are evaluated by investigating: 1) to what extent they have reached their aims and 2) to what extent they place children at the centre. In line with the discussion in the literature, the findings and recommendations have been shared advantageously for key actors and stakeholders not only in Turkey, but from all over the world.
