The Levant Crisis: Syria, Iraq and the Region: Listen to the podcast

4 January 2016
The Syrian civil war has killed thousands and displaced millions, with dire economic, social and political implications not just for Syrians, but neighbouring countries, the region, and wider international community.   The one-day conference, The Levant Crisis: Syria, Iraq and the Region, held on Friday 11 December 2015 brought together experts to discuss how and what has caused the worst humanitarian disaster of our time, what do we need to know about the conflict’s dynamics and what should Australia’s role be in all of this.   The conference was jointly presented by two of The Australian National University’s leading institution in these fields – Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs, Australia’s leading centre for international, political, societal, diplomatic and strategic affairs of our region, and the Centre for Arab and Islamic Studies, Australia’s premier location for studies of the Arab and Muslim world, as well as in North America and Europe.   Podcast sessions:    Session 1: The Dynamics of the Conflict: religion, politics and the strategy  Session 2: Regional Actors Session 3: Outside Powers Session 4: The Future Trajectories For further information please contact the Bell School email: bellschool@anu.edu.au
