Syria Conflict: Developments on the ground and on the international stage

We will be discussing recent developments, on the ground and on the international stage, and asking what changes we could see in coming months.


As fierce fighting continues in Syria, the death toll according to the United Nations has now reached at least 93,000 and the number of refugees fleeing the country has exceeded 1.5 million.

On the ground, assaults are being conducted on all sides and we have seen increased intervention from other parties, such as Hezbollah. On the international stage efforts are being made to bring all parties to the table and the debate about arming rebels is still raging.

Over two years on from the start of the conflict we will be discussing recent developments, on the ground and on the international stage, and asking what changes we could see in coming months.

The panel:

Anthony Loyd is an award-winning war correspondent and writer. He is currently roving foreign correspondent for The Times. He has travelled to Syria eight times in the past 15 months to cover the conflict. A former army officer, he served in Northern Ireland and the First Gulf War. He left the army in 1991. He is the author of My War Gone By I Miss It So.

Lina Sinjab has been the BBC’s correspondent in Syria. She has been reporting for the BBC since 2007 and closely covered the uprising in Syria since it sparked in March 2011. As a Syrian citizen, reporting the story from inside she faced detention and was prevented from leaving the country for almost a year. She won the Cutting Edge Award from the International Media Awards 2013 of The Next Century Foundation.
