Syria: “a conflict that has no winners, only losers”


What is going on in Syria? What are the myths and realities of the Syrian situation? Is it a war or a revolution? Here, Professor Yasser Munif of Emerson University talks with Beshara Doumani, faculty fellow at the Institute and director of the Middle East Studies program, about the causes, developments, current situation, and possible future trajectories in Syria.
