A Once and Future War: A Roundtable on the Syrian Conﬂict.September 27, 1:30pm - 3:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Saunders 624
In effort to decode the mangle of arguments put forth in support of U.S. and International involvement in Syria the round table will explore the domestic, international, and regional politics at play. The participants will give brief outlines of the controversies over U.S. arms sales, the Chemical Weapons Convention, United Nations involvement, those constituencies in Syria that are largely ignored by the media, Russian leadership, and the U.S. constitutional process in regards to Barak Obamaʼs pursuit of military strikes against the Assad government. Further, we will discuss the legacy of regime change as a continuing strategy of U.S. foreign policy. The goal of the roundtable is to provide a forum for signiﬁcant audience and community discussion of this complex international crisis. participants include political science faculty members: Carolyn Stephenson, Colin Moore, Richard Chadwick, Nevzat Soguk, and Jairus Grove.
