The Dialogue on Syria took place on Nov. 14, 2013 at Fairfield University sponsored by the Muslim Student Association and Jesuit Universities Humanitarian Action Network (JUHAN) housed in the Center for Faith and Public Life.
The civil war in Syria has its roots in sectarian loyalties, fueled by an autocratic dictator and neighboring countries with diverging agendas. The result of the almost-three-year conflict has been a laundry list of humanitarian crises: an enormous refugee problem, deaths due to lack of food and medicine, reports of torture, and the use of chemical weapons. This dialogue helped increase awareness and deepened the discussion about one of the most pressing humanitarian emergencies in the world today.
