Juris North Presentation on Syria

We gave a presentation on Syria on 7 December at Manchester Metropolitan University's Juris North legal discussion group. The audience included Law students and faculty, as well as individduals from other departments who were interested in learning about the issue. We prepared two presentations, the first a 'Voices from Syria' presentation given by Yasser Aljassem about his personal experiences in Syria, and the second a discussion by our Research and Policy Coordinator Yasmine Nahlawi on the veto mechanism within the UN Security Council and possible ways of circumventing it.
