The International Responsibility To Protect Syria


Location: Room 1130

The Syrian regime’s brutal response to the pro-freedom movement which began two years ago has led to the death of over 80,000 Syrians, including over 5,000 children. Over 1 million Syrians are refugees in neighboring countries, and another 3-4 million are internally displaced. The Assad regime has been accused of war crimes, including the use of sexual violence, ballistic SCUD missiles and chemical weapons against civilian populations. What should the international community do? Panelists Muna Jondy, an immigration attorney; Jennifer Thuma, a professor and Indianapolis-based attorney; and Kenan Rahmani, a 1L Syrian American human rights activist, will be discussing their first-hand experiences and possible solutions.
