The Institute for Politics and Society, in cooperation with the American Centre, will be organising a public debate. The theme is “Peaceful resolution of the conflict within Syria and the fight against the Islamic State”.

The world is struggling to find a peaceful solution to the conflict in Syria: a solution that would help stabilise the situation in the country. One possible solution is one of national unity especially governmental. Meanwhile, the Islamic State continues to attack, to threaten the security, freedom and European values. We find ourselves in a transition period, one that includes building a coalition against ISIS and to intensify the attacks against ISIS.

What is the solution to the war in Syria? How do we fight against terrorism, particularly Islamic state? Can IS be beaten in a ground attack? It is necessary that they participated in NATO?

What is the solution to winning the war in Syria? Is it to fight against terrorism, in particular ISIS? Can it be beaten via ground troops? Is it necessary for the NATO coalition to step in?

The following will be speaking:
