According 2016 statistics, almost 40 percent of school-aged children (5-17 years old) do not go to school. The main purpose of this thesis is to examine the legal framework and the degree of implementation of the right of Syrian refugee children to primary education considering the international human rights standards, describing Turkey’s obligations arising from international human rights instruments and carrying out a field study in Turkey with the aim of finding out the situation in practice.
