The Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) will host a public webinar on the 10th anniversary of the Syrian uprising to assess where the country stands after a decade of conflict. Speakers will take stock of EU policies and options for Syria against the backdrop of the incoming Biden administration in the US and the policies and prerogatives of Russia and Turkey towards the conflict. Experts will address the current humanitarian crisis, discuss recent political and security developments and assess avenues for a positive EU role in bringing about an end to the suffering of ordinary Syrians.
