Author: Mona Yacoubian, Senior Adviser, Middle East Program, Stimson Center

This module features teaching notes by Mona Yacoubian, coauthor of the Council Special Report Dealing with Damascus, along with other resources to supplement the text.

The authors suggest that diplomatic engagement with Syria would be a more effective means of accomplishing U.S. goals in the region.
