This lecture launches the book The Kurds of Northern Syria: Governance, Diversity and Conflicts, written by Harriet Allsopp and Wladimir van Wilgenburg and published by Bloomsbury in July 2019. Based on unprecedented access to Kurdish-governed areas of Syria, including exclusive interviews with administration officials and civilian surveys, The Kurds of Northern Syria sheds light on the socio-political landscape of northern Syria. The book draws on unparalleled field research, as well as analysis of the literature on the evolution of Kurdish politics and the Syrian war. Van Wilgenburg, a Conflict Studies alumni, will also discuss possible future scenario’s for Syria’s Kurds now that the UN has excluded the main Kurdish faction from Syria’s constitution committee. The evening will be moderated by historian dr. Ozan Ozavci. With his knowledge and experience he will be able to lead a rich plenary discussion afterwards.
