Beyond Geopolitics: Syria From the Ground Up to be held at Brown University on November 8, 2013. Hosted by the Middle East Initiative at Brown, we seek to provide a forum that puts the people of Syria and accurate information on their on-the-ground situation at the front and center of any discussions about the larger picture.
The conference is designed as a series of panel discussions around themes such as economic and health conditions, social movements, and armed conflict to be led by people with first-hand field experience.
