Can we Save Syria?
The humanitarian crises facing those who have been trapped in Syria and those who have escaped to Europe are the result of a long civil war fuelled by other Middle-Eastern and Western powers.
Aside from aid for the people, where ever they are, what can we in the west realistically do to improve their plight or help? The conflict, which involves ISIS, the Syrian regime, various rebel militia, the Kurds, Turkey and all the allies and backers of all the above, has apparently become worse with every action taken in the country by foreign powers.
To help the situation one must understand the situation.
A general debate about what British policy means both here and on the bloodied ground is sorely needed at a national level. The debate on air strikes seemed on one hand about reliving Iraq while lacking any plan for the long term future.
But what is the best response from the people here who sympathise with the plight of the people both caught in the war those escaping it?
The Brighton Salon presents a panel discussion to both look at the facts of the Syrian war and pursue the issues raised.
