The Conflict in Syria: Assessing the Human Toll of Mass Violence
Today at 5 p.m. Smith will host a panel of leading scholars and activists—including outspoken former U.S. ambassador Robert Ford—for a discussion of war crimes and human rights issues related to the Syrian conflict. The panel, which takes place in the Campus Center Carroll Room, will inaugurate the opening of an exhibition of the “Caesar” photographs—a powerful and striking collection of images documenting victims of torture by the government of Syria.
