Rebel Groups: Should We Support Them? When? How? (Discussion)

  • Starts: 3:00 pm on Thursday, November 20, 2014
  • Ends: 4:15 pm on Thursday, November 20, 2014
Join us for another Beyond the Headlines @Pardee School discussion. The world seems awash in rebel movements. Those fighting against oppressive dictators like Syria’s Assad elicit calls for active support -- both military and civilian -- from the United States and our allies. Yet the American people are wary of becoming more deeply involved in conflicts we may not well understand. Join former Assistant Secretary of State for Conflict and Stabilization Operations Ambassador Rick Barton, BU Assistant Professor of Political Science Rosella Cappella, and BU Professor of the Practice of Diplomacy Ambassador Bob Loftis for a conversation on the possibilities and limits of U.S. involvement in these complex crises. Limited seats. Registration required:
