This paper aims to answer the following question: How can the great amount of refugees residing in the region of their origin be socially and economically better integrated without causing resentment and fear within the local population? Regarding this objective, the present paper focuses on Jordan and the Syrian refugees residing there. Furthermore, the question of integration is approached through the education sector. Within the scope of this paper, a project idea is developed, which contributes to the integration of Syrian refugees through the education sector. Based on the analysis of the education system of Jordan and the problems faced by the refugees regarding education, it is concluded that youths and young adults represent a vulnerable group, which gets neglected by the international ac-tors in their response concerning the education of refugees. Therefore, the approach developed fo-cuses on the education needs of youths and young adults in order to address the gap in international response. In addition, the target group is narrowed down to university students in order to provide an effective measure. It is proposed to implement a one-year program at university level, in which mixed groups of students, containing Jordanians and refugees, have the opportunity to develop a start-up business. At the end of the one-year program, the students should have the opportunity to present their start-up projects to public organizations as well as the private sector with the aim of acquiring investments. Start-ups which have successfully acquired investments should work independently from university after the one-year program.
