Phyllis Bennis is a fellow of the Institute for Policy Studies, where she focuses on Middle East and US war issues. She works with the US and global peace and Palestine human rights movements. Her most recent book is UNDERSTANDING ISIS & THE NEW GLOBAL WAR ON TERROR.
On Monday’s call, Phyllis will be focusing on Syria. The discuss will cover the refugee crisis in the context of the escalating war — some background on just how dire the refugee situation is, the 8 separate but overlapping wars currently being fought in Syria, and the role of the US in the crisis. Plus, she will cover what a US policy should look like, what new diplomatic initiatives are underway, and what we can be doing.
