The Middle East Institute held a virtual discussion about the economic and political impact of newly-imposed U.S. sanctions on the Syrian government. Speakers included Syrian writers and scholars along with James Jeffrey, the special representative for Syria engagement. The witnesses also discussed U.S. and international humanitarian assistance efforts and the role of Russia and Iran in the Syrian conflict. The new sanctions legislation, known as the Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act, were activated by the Trump administration on June 17, 2020, and aims to protect Syrian civilians from further war crimes by preventing any foreign investment into the Syrian government. close
