Rebuilding Civilizations Destroyed By Seyfo, The Creation of Modern Iraq and Turkey, and Recent Events
Few topics in international relations are more pressing than restoring the populations and structures affected by decades of war and economic sanctions in Iraq, Syria, and Turkey. Many neighborhoods and even entire towns and villages have been destroyed. Sites of longstanding veneration and cultural transmission were desecrated or severely damaged. This talk will explore a few precedents for interrupting the erasure of peoples' distinct heritages, using national or international commitments to prevent further attacks and restore damaged tangible and intangible cultural heritage.
This event is hosted by the Assyrian Policy Institute in partnership with the Assyrian Studies Association.
