Now in its pilot year, the Syria Forum is the Moshe Dayan Center's flagship analytical forum dealing with issues corresponding to Syria, its environs, and related topics. The forum will bring together scholars, practitioners, and policymakers, and will include those involved in on-the-ground humanitarian and peacekeeping projects.  The Forum will approach contemporary Syria from a multi-disciplinary angle, integrating research that focuses not only on the contemporary security threats and challenges in Syria, but also the evolving changes in Syria’s economy, society, and culture.

While the forum aims to analyze contemporary issues, it is also a mechanism to engage in transnational and cross-cultural dialogue, between Israelis and representatives of other groups in the region. As a result, Forum sessions are conducted using Chatham House Rules, unless otherwise specified.
