Project Jordan presents 'Syria Burning: what hope is there for an end to the bloodshed?'
In early 2011, the Arab Spring triggered a wave of demonstrations against Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad. Three years later, the country has collapsed into a devastating civil war that has killed at least 200,000 people, destabilized the region, and paved the way for extremist organizations such as the Islamic State. How did Syria’s conlict develop from peaceful protests into sectarian violence, and what hope is there for the future of the region?
Aron Lund is the editor of Syria in Crisis (http://carnegieendowment.org/syriaincrisis ), a website focused on the Syria Conflict, which published by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington, DC. He is the author of three books and several reports on Syria's history and politics, most recently Syrien brinner: Hur revolutionen mot Assad blev ett inbördeskrig (Silc Förlag, 2014)
