NYU Washington, DC and the Turkish Heritage Organization presented a panel of experts and professionals with first-hand experience in Turkey and Syria to discuss the current refugee crisis. THO also sponsored a photo exhibit by Turkish American Sinem Oguz, titled "On the Border."

Turkey welcomed more than 2.7 million Syrian refugees since 2011, and spent over $12.5 billion on relief and support efforts for the refugees. As the host country with the largest number of Syrian refugees, Turkey plays an integral part in the current crisis. This year's major world summits, United Nations General Assembly, the inaugural World Humanitarian Summit and G20, have all called for greater action for humanitarian aid to refugees and migrants around the world.
