The Syrian conflict entered its third year with the direct engagement of Hezbollah in the fight for Qusair, Israeli missile strikes near Damascus, and bombings in Reyhanli, Turkey. Meanwhile, marathon talks among members of the main Syrian opposition group have failed to produce a consensus on rebel participation in the U.S.-Russia proposed Geneva peace conference.

Rafaël LeFèvre, Paul Salem, Yezid Sayigh, and Dmitri Trenin will discuss the changing dynamics of the Syrian crisis in a special event that connects speakers and audiences via video from Beirut, Moscow, and Washington.
