Lifelong Learning Program — A Layman's Introduction to the Syrian Civil War
The Syrian Refugee Crisis is the largest refugee crisis since WWII, and it is not ending anytime soon. Prof. Khan will discuss the issue of international refugee policies in general and the situation for Syrians in specific, as well as answering any questions you might have. This is meant to be a bridge between Charlie Vallee's talk on the Syrian conflict ("The Syrian Theater" 3/20) and Sally Bonet's discussion next week on refugees in the the USA ("The Refugee Crisis Within Our Borders: Iraqi Refugees and the Broken American Refugee Resettlement Program" 4/3), although it can of course be a stand-alone discussion.
Facilitator: Noor Khan, Associate Professor of History and Director of the Program in Middle East and Islamic Studies, Colgate University, 2012-present
