Abstract:

On February 21, 2013, CNA s Center for Strategic Studies convened a group of Middle East experts with academic and U.S. government backgrounds for a dialogue on the future prospects for Syria and possible policy options for the United States. The discussion was structured to focus on four key aspects of the conflict future of regime elites and the minority question, the changing role of regional states and external influence, the Jihadist networks in Syria and their implications for terrorism and options for U.S. policy and involvement. This paper is a summary of the major themes and debates that shaped the discussion. To encourage idea sharing and openness, the proceedings follow the Chatham House rule of non-attribution.
