In this webinar, the fourth in our series "The New Arab Diasporas,” Eleni Diker and Nora Jasmin Ragab will discuss the challenges and opportunities facing Syrian civil society actors in six host countries (Lebanon, Turkey, Germany, France, Denmark, and the UK). The webinar will explore how changing realities inside Syria, in host countries, and internationally impact transnational mobilization and how a vibrant, politically and socially engaged civil society led by Syrians has emerged and continues to develop. The discussion will also consider future scenarios, joint strategies, and plans for action for Syrian civil society.
