Five years after the start of the Syrian civil war, more than 4.2 million Syrian refugees have fled the country and more than half are under 18. In this two-part lecture series, attendees will better understand the ongoing conflict and the long-term implications for Syria, the region, and the global community.

The first part of this series focuses on the experience and expertise of Dr. Omar Dahi, visiting fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Middle East Center and associate professor of economics at Hampshire College. Dr. Dahi will provide insight into how Syrians are processing their country’s transformation and a framework for a peaceful future.

[Part II - Five Years of Upheaval: No Lost Generation takes place on March 22, 2016.  The second part of this series focuses on the experience and expertise of former UNICEF Child Protection Specialist and current Mercy Corps Youth Director, Jane MacPhail. Jane will provide information on the organizational approach and focus on supporting a generation growing up in refugee communities. Mercy Corps will continue working hard to relieve the intense suffering of civilians inside Syria as well as refugees seeking safety in neighboring countries.]
