Syria’s Conflict and the Impact on Its Neighbours: The Long View
Panel discussions will examine prospects for the conflicts in Syria and Iraq and ask what challenges Syria’s neighbouring countries could face in the coming years. With nearly half of Syria’s population displaced internally or to Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan and Iraq, how will these countries manage a protracted refugee crisis and how else might they be impacted by the conflict? How could policy responses to these challenges be improved?
The event will be followed by a reception until 18:15.
This event marks the launch of Chatham House’s Syria and its Neighbours Policy Initiative, a multiyear research and convening project focusing on the conflict’s long-term impact on Syria’s immediate neighbours and aiming to support a coordinated and holistic policy response.
Audio recordings of the first, second and third sessions of the event are available above under the Audio tag.
LIVE STREAM: The keynote speech by Lakhdar Brahimi will be live streamed. The live stream will be made available at 16:30 BST on Tuesday 14 October.
THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL AND REGISTRATION IS CLOSED.
