Syria: A Primer

The Syrian Catastrophe: 5 years of revolution, reaction and inaction.

Too often, Syria is presented as a land of generic and ambiguous chaos, rather than a nation devastated by the systematic suppression of a popular uprising against a family regime and the intrusion of numerous local, regional and world power players.

This presentation was given on April 14 at NYU to provide both an introduction and a deeper understanding of how Syria has become what it is today – the world’s largest humanitarian catastrophe.

Note: An updated version of this presentation was created for a discussion at Seton Hall University on 10/13 & the Brooklyn MAS Center (10/23)
