The Syrian civil war started in 2011 in the context of the Arab Spring protests. It has since escalated to a fully-fledged armed conflict.
A survey conducted by researchers from the Berlin Social Science Center, asked 889 Syrian refugees living in Germany various questions, such as why they left Syria, what it would take for them to return, and what the international community should do.
The survey shows that the majority of Syrians who have fled to Europe think President Bashar al-Assad is a greater threat than than Isis. 70% left due to war. 92% want to return to Syria. More Syrians feared President Assad’s forces than Isis. Most report that President Assad’s military response to demonstrations is more responsible for the conflict today than Isis.
