ICSR Paper Launch – War of Shadows: How Turkey’s Conflict with the PKK Shapes the Syrian Civil War and Iraqi Kurdistan, Monday August 7th


Speaker: John Holland McCowan, ICSR 
When: Monday 7 August

With Syria and Iraq in flames, Turkey’s escalating conflict with the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK) has created yet another tinderbox in the region. This struggle hinders the recapture of Raqqa, poses large obstacles for political solutions to the conflicts in Syria, Iraq, and Turkey, while ultimately prolonging the existence of the so-called Islamic State. ‘War of Shadows’ explores how the fate of the Levant will continue to be influenced by this bitter contest.
