While most research on the refugees has focused on the socio-economic burden that the refugees bring to the host countries, little has thus far been conducted on the contribution of the refugees’ business activity. Due to the continuing civil war in Syria a significant amount of Syrian capital flight funneled to Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon and Egypt. This presentation aims to analyze the outcome of such flight by unpacking the different components among Syrian businessmen diaspora and scrutinizing the ways in which their positions within the displaced Syrian community affect their political and economic behaviors in the host countries.
