Dub: Syria - Revolution, Civil war & the Arab Spring meeting

Date:

Farah Azadi who lived in Damascus, Syria from December 2005 until war broke out in Lebanon in the summer of 2006 will lead off a discussion on Syria, next Wednesday evening 9 October in Seomra Spraoi at 20.30. 

Seomra Spraoi, 10 Belveder Court 
Wednesday, 9 October 2013 20:30 until 22:00


Farah, who is the WSM international secretary, will lead the discussion by outlining the current crisis in Syria; the role the uprising in Syria plays in larger geo-political issues in the region inclusive of the shadow of the Iraq war, and democratic possibilities emerging from the Arab Spring; and finally how tangible links of solidarity can be built between Syria and concerned people the world over. 

Farah is also writing a PhD on issues related to gender rights in the Islamic world in the Department of Near and Middle East Studies, TCD.

As we are hoping for the evening to be a discussion, we are encouraging others to come with questions and contributions of their own on the situation in Syria.
