|dc.description.abstract||Gender based violence towards female Syrians is a common issue in humanitarian settings in all of the host countries including Greece. This thesis is a review of the literature about the risk factors of violence against female Syrians of all ages in the camps in Greece. It incorporates explanations of the concept of gender based violence and describes the magnitude and severity of the issue. The methodology section includes the strategies in order to develop the topic and the research questions as well as the inclusion and exclusion criteria. For the analysis of the risk factors has been developed an adapted ecological framework of violence that applies to female Syrians who live in humanitarian settings. This analytical framework conceptualizes the Gender Based Violence in the Individual, Microsystem, Exosystem and Macrosystem level. It was found that not only the existing various risk factors from each of the four levels interplay with each other, but new ones emerged due to war and displacement in the Individual and the Exosystem levels. Gender based violence is a sensitive research topic and there are limited researches that took place in Greece amongst displaced Syrians. Researching the risk factors of violence among Syrian women and girls is a challenging and recent topic which requires further and deeper research in the future. People who live in camps deserve decent living conditions, redemption of their reputation in Greek communities and access to tailored health and social services.
