Syria in the Crosshairs: Religion, Violence, and the Legacy of Exploitation in the Arab World
March 2014 will mark three years since the Syrian civil war began. However, as a panel at Fordham University revealed, the cause of the unfettered violence in the region and how the world ought to respond still remain largely unclear
Moderated by George Demacopoulos, Ph.D., professor of theology and co-founding director of the center, the panel featured:
Michael Wahid Hanna, fellow at The Century Foundation;
Nadieszda Kizenko, Ph.D., associate professor of history at the University at Albany, State University of New York;
Joseph Massad, Ph.D., associate professor of modern Arab politics and intellectual history at Columbia University; and
Christopher Awad, a senior at Fordham College at Rose Hill and a student in the Orthodox Christian Studies program.
