UN Human Rights Council
The Syrian Civil War & its Ongoing Effects
The world's most divisive proxy war...
The Syrian Civil War has evolved into one of the world’s most divisive proxy wars in all of history. It has come to represent more than just pro-Assad versus anti-Assad, but also Shia versus Sunni, Kurd versus Arab, and even East versus West. Indeed it seems that all Middle Eastern rivalries have coalesced into the Civil War. From the ongoing refugee crisis to international terrorism, the Civil War has affected the politics, economies, and diplomacy of the entire world. International interests are high and the stakes are even higher. With severe human rights violations being committed from all sides of the conflict, the UN Human Rights Council will have to come to terms with the incredible complexity of the local schisms, regional rivalries and international interventions and alliances that has defined the Syrian Civil War.
