Demystifying the Syrian Conflict

1 March 2018 - 8:30am to 6:00pm

Chatham House, London



Seven years into the Syrian conflict, many of the dynamics on the ground in Syria remain misunderstood or misrepresented, leading to oversimplification at best and problematic approaches to the crisis at worst.

This conference aims to shed light on the issues that are among the least understood in the Syrian context, including the opacity of regime areas, the composition and motivation of rebel factions, the future of areas liberated from ISIS, and the crucial roles of civil society and local communities.

The conference gathers leading policymakers, experts and civil society leaders to examine the key challenges and opportunities faced on the ground in Syria today.
