What are the strategic, regional, political, and other drivers & consequences of U.S. action amid unfolding events in Syria? Given the recent events surrounding the suspected use of chemical weapons in Syria and contemplation of use of military force, CISTP is hosting a panel discussion on Syrian Crisis, the implications for WMD proliferation and terrorism, and broader security repercussions in the Middle East. The purpose of this panel will be to answer questions and to help the audience navigate these difficult policy considerations fostering an informed public debate.

Faculty from GT’s Sam Nunn School of International Affairs (INTA) will examine the Syrian crisis from several angles and discuss the implications of US policy.
