This session will inhabit a number of angles to examine the Syrian Civil War, a conflict that’s left one in ten Syrians wounded or killed since 2011. How did the tragedy build to its current point, and what were the global community’s greatest missteps? What factors and interests are at play in this volatile and bloody war? Who is most effectively helping the affected millions, and how are they doing it? What should the world do beyond looking on in horrified disbelief? Hear from Syrians displaced by the conflict, aid workers innovating on the ground, and policy experts advocating for understanding and engagement.
