There is little non-anecdotal evidence of the condition of displaced Christians across Europe and the Middle East. Many have fled severe persecution because of their faith. As a persecuted minority group, they often go to great lengths to hide their religious identity for fear of being attacked. Governments are reluctant to act without hard evidence. Therefore, researchers from the International Christian Consulate carry out extensive research into the condition of Christians from across the region, including Jordan, Iraq/Kurdistan, Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, Turkey and Lebanon. Reports detailing some of the findings are published on this page.
