A Dialogues Seminar: Syria in Transition

October 20, 2018 at 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

The civil war in Syria is one of the most complex conflicts in the Middle East, and few outsiders understand its origins or its wide-ranging effects on the people who live there. This special Dialogues seminar will examine the historical causes of the devastating Syrian violence and give particular attention to the plight of refugees who have fled the country or struggled with the massive internal displacements that have shattered Syrian communities and families. A distinguished historian of the Middle East will join a Syrian- American with personal knowledge of the refugee crisis to help us understand recent events and the human costs of the Syrian war.
