We have all heard about the situation in Syria, but what do we really know about it? Let's talk about it tonight at 6PM at St John's.
All refugee settings have layers of tragedy and no solution is perfect - Syria is the most complex humanitarian situation in recent memory. What can/should we do? Why do nation-states respond with camps? Whose interests are served? What are the long-term solutions? How do the media represent refugees and refugee camps?
Chair: Kevin McKenna (The Observer)
Panellists: Gary Christie (CEO, Scottish Refugee Council), Dr Thomas Pierret, (Lecturer in Contemporary Islam, University of Edinburgh), Ashley ProudRae McGrath (Nobel Laureate and Director of Mercy Corps' operations in North Syria and Turkey)
