The Crisis in Syria: A Kroc Institute Current Events Panel


Location: Hesburgh Center for International Studies

Featured panelists include:

  • Asher Kaufman, associate professor of history and peace studies
  • Mary Ellen O’Connell, professor of law and research professor of international dispute resolution
  • Michael Desch, professor of political science

Moderated by David Cortright, director of policy studies at the Kroc Institute.

As the crisis in Syria intensifies, the United States and its allies are considering a response, including possible military strikes on Syria.

This panel of experts will provide context on regional dynamics in the Middle East, explain international legal issues surrounding the use of force, and discuss the implications for U.S. and international security.

Panelists will consider the arguments both for and against military action and leave plenty of time for questions, answers, and participation from students, faculty, staff, and the community.

This event is free and open to the public.
