Overview

Recent years have seen marked shifts in the dynamics between Kurdish groups in Syria, Iraq and Turkey and their relations with respective national governments, as well as the emergence of a de facto autonomous Kurdish region in Syria. Are recent trends likely to continue, or might we see a return to status quo ante? How are Kurdish politics and regional alliances likely to unfold and what are the implications for international policy? This half-day roundtable will convene experts on Kurdish politics and society as well as on Syria, Iraq and Turkey to map potential scenarios for the future of the Kurds in the region.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
