Indeed Barbara, the Bank and our other donor partners need to pitch in to not only ensure that these young men and women are integrated successfully in their host countries but, at least as importantly, find themselves in a position to contribute to the future of Syria. There are some innovative efforts being initiated on the higher education side and I hope to be able to report on these in the months to come.
