The Long-Term Impacts of Syria’s War
Syria’s civil war has transformed the Middle East. After five years of conflict, Syria has been shattered with violence, political instability, state weakness and economic difficulty, likely to continue for years to come whatever the fate of the current war. For neighbouring states, preventing the strife from spilling over borders has proved impossible, whether through flows of refugees, non-state fighters, radicalization or sectarianism. Meanwhile, developments in Syria have helped shift geostrategic calculations for key regional and international powers, including the US, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Iran, impacting their policies for the region as a whole. This workshop aims to explore what these transformations might mean going forward, assessing the long-term local, regional and international impacts of Syria’s civil war.
