The Syria Crisis is considered the world's most complex and intractable conflict as well as its most urgent humanitarian crisis. This presentation will provide an overview of the genesis and development of the Syria Crisis since 2011, and examine its various national, regional and international dimensions. With Syria currently the arena of a domestic civil war, regional proxy war, and international rivalry, an examination of the current situation and key challenges to achieving a resolution of this conflict will identify priorities for restoring peace to Syria and its people.
