Lecture #1 Syria's Expanding Crisis: From Aleppo to New England

  • Bill Bordy Theatre & Auditorium, Emerson College 216 Tremont Street Boston, MA, 02116 United States

As the civil war in Syria approaches its 7th year, more than 50% of the population has been displaced by violence. Join the International Institute's new Intersection Series to learn how governments and humanitarian partners are responding as the crisis expands across Syria and further into the Middle East and Europe. Explore the long-term impact for displaced Syrians and their host communities, including cities in New England, where refugee families are rebuilding their lives. 

Moderated by Shannon Dooling, WBUR
