The Syrian Crisis: What Lies Ahead on the Battlefield and in Diplomacy?

  • Middle East Institute 1319 18th Street NW Washington, DC (map)

Syria is entering its seventh year of civil war. More than 500,000 people have been killed and half of the population is displaced. The fall of Aleppo to regime forces and the initiation of U.S. airstrikes in retaliation for the Assad regime's use of chemical weapons create new realities on the ground and between Washington and Moscow. The international community is riven by competing interests and disagreement over whether and how to intervene militarily and diplomatically to bring the conflict, and its resulting humanitarian crisis, to an end.

The Wilson Center is convening experts on the military and diplomatic aspects of the conflict in two panel discussions to consider possible ways forward.
