Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan
Outcomes in Syria will have a long-term impact on the stability of the Levant and the Middle East as a whole. As Syria’s conflict spreads beyond its borders, Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey face large influxes of refugees, threatening to further destabilize fragile societies which face their own calls for reform and political change. Spillover from Syria has also destabilized Iraq and drawn the United States and other world powers into military conflict in both countries. The Middle East Program analyzes developments in Syria and U.S. policy toward the conflict with an eye to their effect on the political and security dynamics of the broader region.
