UNC’s curriculum in peace, war and defense and the Carolina Center for the Study of the Middle East and Muslim Civilizations plans to host a roundtable discussion titled “Intervention in Syria?: Problems, Prospects and Contexts.”
The event is scheduled from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 3, in the Nelson Mandela Auditorium at the FedEx Global Education Center.
The panel will address increased global tensions over the ongoing conflict within Syria and the likelihood that the U.S. and some of its allies will intervene militarily. The United Nations has estimated that up to 100,000 people have been killed since the conflict began in 2011 and that more than 1.7 million refugees have fled to neighboring countries.
A question-and-answer session will follow the discussion.
The FedEx Global Education Center is at 301 Pittsboro St. at Pittsboro and McCauley streets. Parking may be available in the garage under the building beginning at 5 p.m.
