1-3 August 2018 in St Andrews, Scotland
The main theme of the conference was the late Uprising period since roughly 2015, with focus on issues such as the sectarianization of the conflict; the evolution of the balance of power among groups in the conflict; governance and civil society amidst civil war in both regime and opposition areas; diplomacy and external intervention in the conflict; the Syrian diaspora; and issues of “reconciliation” and “reconstruction.”
