Dossier: Syria in Conflict

What began as peaceful protests against an authoritarian regime has led to a large-scale conflict, involving regional powers and major international players. This conflict, which has caused more than 100.000 deaths and more than two million refugees, has fractured the Syrian society and violence has already spilled across the border to other countries. After the chemical weapons attack on civilians, there were talks about a possible military intervention but such action never materialized and now all hopes hinge on finding a political solution agreed to not only by the opposition and the regime but by major international stakeholders. The conference of Geneva II to be held on January 22 aims to be the framework from where to establish the expected political solution.

CIDOB is following with special attention the developments in Syria and this dossier aims to provide our users with a reading guide as well as in-depth analysis and access to documental resources. We start from the observation that this is a regional conflict that has evolved substantially in the last three years and much of our efforts have been channelled to identify these trends and dissect the positions of the neighbouring countries, regional powers and major international actors.
