Rethink Rebuild Society Participates in 'Last Men in Aleppo: What Role Can the UK Play in Syria?' Panel Discussion

The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) Friends of Syria and Crisis Action held a panel event on 27 November 2017 under the title of 'Last Men in Aleppo: What Role Can the UK Play in Syria?' that served to warn of the dangers of repeating the same mistakes that international inaction and lack of accountability have impacted in the disaster of Aleppo in 2016.

On the panel was our Research and Policy Coordinator Bilal Shami, who discussed the need to strengthen the role of civil society and to uphold accountability mechanisms. He alerted that what happened in Aleppo is today being repeated in Eastern Ghouta, where the catastrophic situation caused by continued siege and bombardment by the Assad regime may yet submit trapped people into forced displacement with no one held accountable.
