The Ripples of Syria

The Ripples of Syria

Mon, Mar 15, 2021 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM Central Daylight Time (UTC-5)

Tickets here.

We will welcome Jomana Qaddour, nonresident senior fellow with the Rafik Hariri Center and Middle East Programs at the Atlantic Council.

About this Event

A decade in, the intractable conflict in Syria shows no signs of slowing or disentangling, and ripples continue to be felt through Syrian society, governance, and the larger region. Jomana Qaddour, nonresident senior fellow with the Rafik Hariri Center and Middle East Programs at the Atlantic Council, will help us examine where the Syrian conflict stands today, the impacts it has had on Syrian governance and society and on neighboring states and communities, and what the prospects are in the short and medium terms.
