FP Virtual Podcast Launch: Syria’s Lost Generation
The real cost of Syria’s decade-long war
Foreign Policy hosted a dynamic conversation to mark the release of our new podcast series: Syria’s Lost Generation.
Syria has been torn apart by war for a decade. A staggering number of deaths and refugees and re-escalating violence provide a grim accounting of the international community’s failure to bring the conflict to a peaceful resolution. The UN has registered 5.6 million Syrian refugees globally, with another 6.2 million internally displaced, at least half of them are children. As many outside actors apply pressure on different sides of the conflict, peace remains elusive, leaving a generation of children knowing only war, destruction and extreme poverty.
Syria’s Lost Generation, the new original podcast series by FP Studios, in partnership with World Vision and the Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS) Foundation, tracks the real cost of this decade-long war. Through the voices and stories of young Syrians displaced by war, we gain a sobering look at the devastating impacts of the conflict but also hope-inspiring lessons of resilience and opportunities to support paths to recovery. Tune in to hear first-hand perspectives from survivors, aid workers and advocates working to bring the world’s attention to this ongoing conflict and campaigning for humanitarian support and peace.
