The impact of social adjustment policy on Syrian refugees





Abstract. This study aims to investigate the impact of social adjustment policy on Syrian refugees, whereas the study population is composed of all Syrian refugees in Jordan. The sample of refugees in different regions of Jordan was surveyed (1675 in total). In order to achieve the objective of the study, the social adjustment scale was constructed in the final form of 20 items. After confirming its validity and stability, it was applied to the sample. The results show that the impact of the social adjustment policy on Syrian refugees in Jordan depends on gender factors, duration of asylum, and the place of residence, but does not depend significantly on the education level. Social adaptation more characterizes men, and there are significant differences between the level of social adaptation in Badia, as well as between urban residences and in rural ones.
