Assessing International Intervention: Applying Lessons from Srebrenica to Conflict in Sryia
The recent history of Srebrenica and the potential outcomes in Syria are strikingly similar. The differences are critical, too. This symposium will explore the role of the international community in conflict areas such as these with University of Houston faculty Irene Guenther, Dina Al-Sowayel, Terry Hallmark, and visiting scholar from the Hague, Mient Jan Faber. They will touch on topics ranging from genocide to political solutions that will enable competing ethnic, religious and political groups to coexist. Following a short presentation on the 1995 genocide in Srebrenica by four Honors College students who traveled to Bosnia and Herzegovina this summer, our panelists will comparatively explore the former situation in Srebrenica and current conflict in Syria. The format includes an open discussion in which audience participation is encouraged. The panel discussion aims to flesh out the important current crisis in the Middle East, which will inevitably have repercussions in the area and on the international balance of power.
