null NSA Professor Baylouny Delivers Talk to World Affairs Council

February 25, 2019

NSA Professor Anne Marie Baylouny spoke to the World Affairs Council (WAC) of Monterey Bay luncheon on February 25, 2019, on the topic of the Syrian refugee crisis. Since the beginning of the Syrian civil war in 2011, over seven million people have fled Syria to seek safety in Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan, and beyond in places such as Europe. Additionally, millions more are displaced inside Syria. Most are living in extreme poverty, and humanitarian groups are unable to access many who live in the areas of conflict. Professor Baylouny discussed this humanitarian crisis, policy options for the international community and the United States, and prospects for an end to the conflict.

Professor Baylouny is Associate Professor of National Security Affairs at the Naval Postgraduate School where she specializes in Middle East politics, grassroots organizing, and Islam. She received her Ph.D. in political science from the University of California, Berkeley. Professor Baylouny has lived in Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan and has traveled extensively in the Middle East.
