Chair: Jane Kinninmont, Senior Research Fellow, Middle East and North Africa Programme, Chatham House
As the humanitarian situation in Syria deteriorates and with no prospect of negotiations in sight, the urgent search for a solution to the conflict continues. While Turkey has opened its borders to Syrian refugees and opposition fighters, Iran continues to support Bashar Assad's government.
At this event, participants will consider the dynamics of Syria's relations with these two key regional powers, leading into a broader discussion of the regional impact of the conflict.
The event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
