This article is featured in the ORIENT III 2019

Through its refugee policy, Turkey gained great influence on both Sunni migrants from and Sunni fighters in Syria. It uses this influence in many ways to ensure its security vis-à-vis the Kurds and to extend its power in Syria. It also uses it in its relations with Russia and the US to obtain their support for its policy of interest. At the same time, through its migration policy, it puts pressure on the EU to obtain financial support.
