The Consequences of Chaos: Syria's Humanitarian Crisis and the Failure to Protect by Elizabeth G. Ferris and Kemal Kirişci
Brookings Institution Press, 2016
call number: 956.91 Fer
"The Consequences of Chaos looks beyond the ever-increasing numbers of Syria's uprooted to consider the long-term economic, political, and social implications of this massive movement of people. Neighboring countries hosting thousands or even millions of refugees, Western governments called upon to provide financial assistance and even new homes for the refugees, regional and international organizations struggling to cope with the demands for food and shelter--all have found the Syria crisis to be overwhelming in its challenges. And the challenges of finding solutions for those displaced by the conflict are likely to continue for years, perhaps even for decades." - publisher's summary excerpt
