This issue of the Quarterly on Refugee Problems - AWR Bulletin (QRP) has a special focus on refugee situations in the Middle East. The Presidency of AWR German Section devotes a resolution to the Middle East Conflict, Simchat Torah Massacre and Gaza War. Roßkopf summarizes the related Order of the International Court of Justice of 26/1/2024 and draws conclusions for the needed peace process. Ghanem et al. compare the situation of Palestinian and Syrian refugee groups hosted in Jordan to derive recommendations for future refugee scenarios. Syrian refugee women in Jordan were also at the core of a student research and mobility project evaluated by Al-Saideh et al. This is complemented by Weidmann's analysis of potentials and limits of social work with Syrian survivors of atrocity crimes in their fight for transitional justice in German courts. Hoffman summarizes current migration related European jurisdiction and developments in politics, legislation and on the ground. Finally, the organisers announce a call for papers for AWR's upcoming international conference on "Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration: Humanitarian Pathways".
