Although Syria has a functioning government, it is one weakened by five years of an internationalized civil conflict.

What is the responsibility of the “international community” for the return of Syrian refugees and the country’s post-conflict reconstruction? Professor Moghadam will address these questions, and show what a peaceful and stable Syria looked like prior to 2011.
