When it is considering that migration has led to the mass migration more than 175 million people in the last fifty years the importance of studies on migration is further increased. According to the 2015 Human Development Report, between the years 1990-2013 247 million people migrated for various reasons and half of that number were women. From this perspective “migration” most affects women and children in the context of effects and consequences. This effect should be considered ?n terms of both immigrants and target countries.

Though the city has experienced an expansion in the commercial context with civil war and migration in Syrian, in the context socio-cultural it seems that migration brings significant problems in social life. Especially women are affected by this problem and this effect is change based on women's tolerance of "hospitality" is to change perceptions based on the women's tolerance of "hospitality" perceptions.
