This recent Atlantic Memo from AICGS’ partner organization atlantic-community.org, entitled “Thinking Beyond Intervention: A Limited Transatlantic Policy Towards Syria”, presents the findings of atlantic-community.org members’ debates on the transatlantic approach to the ongoing situation in Syria. The memo explains that arming rebels will likely escalate the conflict in Syria, a no-fly zone is too risky and cost-inefficient, and that intervention is politically unlikely. Instead, the three goals that should be pursued are: (1) support political dialogue that includes the regime and leads to federalization in Syria; (2) secure Syria’s chemical weapons, including by partnering with Russia; (3) reinforce the security of Turkey’s southern border to reduce the spread of violence and to help Turkey to better serve its citizens and refugees.
