The Syrian Uprising: The Long Road to Democracy

Radwan Ziadeh

Visiting Scholar at The Institute for Middle East Studies (IMES) at Elliot School of International Affairs at George Washington University

With over 2,200 protesters killed and many thousands injured and imprisoned, President Bashar al-Assad continues to ignore global condemnation of his use of deadly force to quell unrest in Syria. Sparked by the arrest of 15 schoolboys who had written antigovernment slogans on a wall, the Syrian revolution has rocked the country and threatens to destabilize the entire region. How will this latest grassroots democratic revolution play out? And at what cost? What should the international response be?

Join Radwan Ziadeh (a leading voice and one of the major players in the “Damascus Spring”) for an eye-opening look at the recent events and the historic and political context underpinning the current democratic revolution in Syria.

Cosponsored with the Middle East Studies Center, Portland State University.
