Radical change? Ft. Ribal al-Assad, director, Organisation for Freedom & Democracy in Syria
The Syrian conflict started as a push for more democracy, quickly degenerating into a bloody civil war with multiple regional and international sponsors. Four years and 210,000 victims later, the country is no closer to democracy or a peaceful resolution. What are the geopolitical and religious factors that have fanned the war, and is it time for the international community to focus on achieving peace rather than political change in Syria? Oksana is joined by Ribal al-Assad, director of the Organisation for Democracy & Freedom in Syria, to analyze these issues.
