Syria after the Arab Spring: War, Identity, and Generational Change
You are cordially invite you to attend the third virtual meeting of the KAS/MDC Hiwar Forum for Intra-Regional Dialogue
Syria was often described as the “last bastion of Arab nationalism.” It took an active part in all military confrontations against Israel since 1948 and continues to play a vital rule in the “axis of resistance” that serves as the main link between Iran and Hizballah. How-ever, the Syrian war, which has devastated Syria, has changed Syria’s political dynamics. In our dialogue we will speak with two Syrians who have experienced the Syrian war, the Syrian transition and have found themselves doing their part to create a new dis-course in the region. *This event is being held under the Chatham House Rule.
