    Whether or not the international community agrees on a way to bring Syria’s chemical weapons under international control, the conflict in Syria will continue.  How outside powers affect and are affected by that conflict is the subject of this panel presentation by UNC-CH political science faculty and doctoral students.  Panelists will address the history of US involvement, the larger regional implications of the conflict, the track record of outside interventions and of outside mediation in civil wars, and how the U.S. military provides civilian leaders with advice about the use of military force.
