A decade of war in Syria has devastated the country and spawned one of the worst refugee crises in the world. Millions of Syrians fled over the years to neighboring Lebanon and Jordan, where they live to this day in makeshift camps. Millions more are displaced inside Syria.
On March 9, Foreign Policy, in partnership with World Vision International and the Syrian American Medical Society, brings you Syria’s Lost Generation, a six-part podcast about young Syrians who expected to live normal lives—going to school and making friends. Instead, they and their families were uprooted by war and traumatized by displacement.
Subscribe to Syria’s Lost Generation wherever you get your podcasts.
The show is hosted by award-winning actor Liam Cunningham, who is known for his role in Game of Thrones and many other television shows and films. Cunningham has worked with nongovernmental organizations, including World Vision, to raise awareness for the plight of refugees.
The series is reported from the region by journalist David Enders, a reporter based in Lebanon who has covered war in Syria, Iraq, and elsewhere.
