As the world waits to learn what efforts the US will put forth in Syria, the Aspen Institute offers a series of opinion pieces from the perspectives of our policy program directors and chairs focusing on global security, homeland security, and the Middle East. The third expert featured in our series is former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, a trustee of the Institute and chair of the Middle East-focused Partners for a New Beginning.

The Aspen Institute Middle East Programs and the University of Denver’s Center for Middle East Studies held their inaugural discussion on “Syria and the Future of the Levant.” In the video above, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright offers her perspective on pressing issues facing the US and both its action and inaction in Syria.
