1 Lexi Tanner Freshman Composition Dr. Frederickson October 23, 2016 Abstract The purpose for writing this expository essay over Syrian refugees was to explain, using cause effect, the cause of the Syrian civil war, and the effects the civil war had on the civilians seeking refuge.

The scope of Syrian refugees in dealing with the writing of this essay is the extent the Syrian refugees have on the world, and the refugees seeking refuge in countries around the world.
