This paper is a summary of discussions at a closed-door expert workshop convened by Chatham
House in partnership with the Norwegian Peacebuilding Resource Centre (NOREF) on 12 February
2014. The workshop brought together a number of analysts and policy-makers from Syria, its
neighbours and the United Kingdom and Europe to discuss the regional dynamics of the conflict,
focusing on the specific impact on each neighbouring country, the political, military and
humanitarian situation in Syria, and the broader international and regional diplomatic context.
