Roundtable on Syria with Jonathan Spyer

02.04.2013

On March 26 2013, PSSI hosted Jonathan Spyer, a Senior Research Fellow at the Global Research in International Affairs Center in Herzliya, Israel, author and journalist specializing in the areas of Israel, Lebanon, Syria and broader issues of regional strategy. In his lecture, Mr. Spyer gave a short overview of the events in Syria since the outbreak of the uprising and assessed the current situation in Syria, focusing on the strengths and weaknesses of both the government and the rebels, and the international support both are receiving. Elaborating on the current state of the conflict in Syria, Mr. Spyer stressed the fact that there is a growing Western consensus that the deadly stalemate in Syria has to be broken in order for the moderate rebels to prevail over the hardline Islamists. Last but not least, drawing on his recent immediate experience from the Syria’s Kurdish region, Mr. Spyer mentioned the potential risk of the country’s disintegration and the Syrian Kurds’ rising aspirations. The roundtable was organized with the kind support of the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
