Moderated by Barbara Frey, Director, Human Rights Program and Alejandro Baer, Director, Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies
As the situation in Syria grows evermore heartbreaking, maintaining its position in center stage as the world watches mass atrocities unfold, tensions over what action to take (or not to take) continue to escalate. Russia stands firm in its decision to block UN humanitarian intervention, and the United States looks to take matters into its own hands with military action, while divides deepen during the G20 summit and in Syria, chemical weapons begin to be employed. In the anticipation of a potential confrontation of some nature, experts and scholars contemplate how to take action without vast and devastating consequences.
