Join us for a talk with Hind Kabawat, Deputy of Syrian Negotiation Committee, and Director of Interfaith Peacebuilding, Center for World Religions, Diplomacy and Conflict Resolution, George Mason University. Ms. Kabawat will illustrate how the Syrian Negotiation Commission (SNC), made up of diverse Syrian opposition groups, is able to make small, but meaningful advances for the Syrian people, in the face of great challenges created by years of civil war. These challenges include millions of refugees and displaced, meddling by self-interested external parties, internal and external spoilers and the refusal of the regime to negotiate a political resolution. From her vast field of experience, Ms. Kabawat will provide examples of decisions and actions taken by the SNC to alleviate the suffering of the Syrian people, empower the resistance, include women in the political process, and impact the high level political process – all while formal negotiations are stalled.
