Rev Andrew Ashdown
Chaired by the Revd Bertrand Olivier
Our two guests used their combined extensive experience in the region to present a historical background of Syria, contextualize the conflict and consider the future. Each speaker introduced their own perspectives before opening up the debate to the audience and taking several provoking questions and comments. The audience came away feeling challenged and more informed about what is happening in Syria, how it has come to this point, and what can be done to help the people whose lives are so tremendously effected by the conflict.
