Stimson in the News

Mona Yacoubian is quoted in Diplomatic Courier on Syrian civil war

in Program

Since 2011 Syria has rocked with violence, eventually civil war.
Initially peaceful protests against the Assad government quickly
escalated to thousands of deaths and the destruction of a country. The
Syrian conflict is something that Washington and the U.N. have avoided,
even while privately-and sometimes openly-questioning what is to be
done. Is it time that the U.S. intervened in the Syrian civil war?

In early June, the National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations and the
U.S.-GCC Corporate Cooperation Committee hosted a briefing on “Crisis Syria: Going Where?”
featuring Ms. Mona Yacoubian, Senior Advisor, Middle East at the
Stimson Center; Mr. Ian Pannell, Correspondent for BBC News; Professor
David Des Roches, Senior Military Fellow at the Near East South Asia
Center for Strategic Studies, National Defense University; Ms. Sharon
Waxman, Vice President of Public Policy and Advocacy at the
International Rescue Committee; and Professor Paul Sullivan, Professor
of Economics at National Defense University and Adjunct Professor at
Georgetown University. Dr. John Duke Anthony, Founding President and CEO
of National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations, served as moderator.
