How do we even begin to think about the scale of the Syrian conflict, when so many lives are endangered every day?

World Vision and Europe’s largest independent economics consultancy, Frontier Economics, released its report The Cost of Conflict for Children: Five Years of the Syria Crisis. The report looks to change the discussion on Syria crisis to focus on the cost for children and their future in the region.

Panellists from The Australian National University and World Vision’s Jordan and Melbourne offices discussed the findings of this report, field perspectives and their implications for international law, policy and the operations of humanitarian organisations responding to this global crisis.

Speakers included:

  • Sahar Yassin, Humanitarian Advocacy Lead, World Vision Jordan
  • Emma Wanchap, Acting Manager of Policy and Government Relations, World Vision Australia
  • Kevin Boreham, Lecturer, ANU College of Law
  • Stephen Howes, Director, Development Policy Centre at Crawford School of Public Policy, ANU
