Reader Question: Anyone Worked with Syrians Already?

Katy Holmes

Katy has a Master’s degree from the University of Kentucky’s Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce. She recently spent a summer working in Syrian refugee camps in Turkey.

Katy Holmes is an LIRS intern who will compile some advance information about working with Syrians as we all begin to wonder when/if we’ll resettle that population in the coming years.

Around 30 Syrians have already been resettled.  More, including many students already in the US, have been granted asylum.  Katy will contribute what she learns as it relates to Employment, so stay tuned to the blog.

Meanwhile, if any of you have worked with Syrians and are willing to talk to Katy about that experience, leave a comment on the blog or shoot her an email at
