Over the course of 2016, Turkey continued to make progress in the protection of and assistance to refugees in the country. On 15 January 2016, Turkey announced the much anticipated Regulation on Work Permit of Refugees Under Temporary Protection granting all beneficiaries of the Temporary Protection (namely Syrians, stateless persons and Palestinians from Syria) access to formal employment. This exemplary move allows for increased self-reliance and additional opportunities for refugees in Turkey and paves the way for scaling up the resilience programming in the 3RP.
