The Center for Global Peace & Conflict Studies presents

"The Syrian Tragedy: Where From? Where To?"
with Bassam Haddad, Georgetown and George Mason Universities

Thursday, April 10, 2014
3:30-5:30 p.m.
Humanities Instructional Building, Room 135

All the other Arab uprisings are complex, but the Syrian case is endowed with added complexity because it is at the heart of various historical struggles in the region and beyond. As such, the Syrian uprising becomes a local, regional, and an international affair. Haddad will address the causes and dynamics of the Syrian uprising by examining state and society, the domestic and external opposition, the Islamicization of major parts of the opposition, the humanitarian/refugee crisis, and the international context.
