by Cassie Saenz

On Monday, February 13th, the Institute of Politics and Public Service welcomed a panel of five for an event entitled “Syrian Conflict: Is There a Bipartisan Solution?”

Mo Elleithee, Executive Director of the Institute of Politics and Public Service, introduced the panel to the audience in Georgetown’s ICC Auditorium.

This event brought together a panel of leading voices including SE Cupp, Board Member for Help Me Go Home, Advisory Board Member at GU Politics, CNN Contributor; Anne Richard, Former Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration; and Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16), Member of House Committee on Foreign Affairs; Nora Barré, Board Member, Help Me Go Home. Jim Sciutto, Chief National Security Correspondent of CNN, moderated the conversation.

The panel discussed the Syrian refugee crisis to raise awareness and discuss potential bipartisan policy solutions to this humanitarian crisis. After giving a brief summary on the state of the Syrian Conflict and how we got to where we are today, the conversation led to the panelists searching for a solution that people from different sides of the aisle could possibly agree on.
