Final episode of the five-part online event series „Syria – The war on Europe’s doorstep“
Before the war, around 18 million Syrians lived abroad in foreign countries. As a result of the recent refugee movement, the Syrian diaspora is today larger than the number of Syrians remaining within the country. Since dignified life will not be possible in Syria in foreseeable time, there are more and more voices claiming that the future of the Syrian society lies within the diaspora. What role for the Syrian diaspora? What forms of organizations already exist? What is the common theme within the diaspora and what self-image is cultivated? What leverages do the Syrian diaspora have to impact on the situation within Syria or on the Syrian policy of European countries?
