Program Overview

Program Description:

This class will look at the Syrian tragedy from a critical perspective of experiments in conflict resolution interventions from their pre-war stage inside Syria to their current mid-war period. Students will learn about the challenges facing Syrian refugees, meet with activists and humanitarian workers, and learn from organizations attempting to address these challenges and mitigate the disastrous results of the conflict. This is a service-learning course that brings students face-to-face with the refugee situation and the realities of the conflict on the ground. In partnership with Project Amal ou Salam, students complete several days of service work over the course of the trip. Students will stay in Amman and travel to refugee areas north of the city to volunteer with schools sponsored by Project Amal ou Salam.
