HCRI Event at Manchester University on Syria

We attended an event on 10 March 2016 hosted by the Humanitarian and Conflict Resource Institute at the University of Manchester titled 'Contested Syria, Contested Knowledge: Insights, Challenges, and Lessons from Research and Grassroots Reporting'. The event featured Dr. Sandra Pogodda, Dan Smith, and Robin Yassin-Kassab as panellists, who talked about some of the misconceptions commonly held about Syria as well as what needs to be done to counter the information void that exists in much of media reporting.
