3482) Settlement of Armenian Refugees -Syria &Lebanon, 1915-1939

T. H. Greenshields, 1978

This thesis investigates the settlement of Armenian refugees in Syria and Lebanon between 1915 and 1939. The topic was conceived not so much as a refugee study but as a study of the processes of minority settlement in the Middle East., for while the importance of the ethnic mosaic pattern in the area has long been recognised, there have been few studies of the processes involved in the evolution of this pattern. A study of the processes of Armenian settlement would enable an assessment of the relative significance of ethnicity, economic status and political manipulation in determining the settlement pattern as well as test the writer's assumption of the interdependence of these constraints. While for purposes of analysis the principal constraints on settlement were investigated separately, and regional and urban patterns were differentiated, the object of the study was not to test individually the significan I ce of the various constraints discussed, but to construct an overall picture of the processes in operation against which their significance could ultimately be tested. The study reveals that while economic and social constraints acted powerfully to inhibit dispersal and maintain concentrationg political manipulation was less significant. In all respects, however, social, economic and Political constraints were interdependent and their principal effect was to maintain a self-perpetuating process of concentration and segregation,
