Three years after the Arab Spring protests began across the Middle East, violence in Syria has caused the deaths of tens of thousands of Syrians and created millions of Syrian refugees. In spite of calls by politicians and pundits, the majority of Americans have continued to oppose US military intervention in Syria. Stephen Zunes and Paul Larudee will discuss the roots and history of the current crisis in Syria and suggest possible resolutions.

Stephen Zunes is a professor of Politics and coordinator of Middle Eastern Studies at the University of San Francisco.

Paul Larudee is a founder of the Free Gaza movement and a leader of the Syria Solidarity Movement, who has been a Fulbright-Hays Exchange Lecturer in Lebanon and a U.S. government contract adviser to Saudi Arabia.
