Global Citizenship Brief: Syria

As the current crisis in Syria continues into its fourth year, an entire generation of children is being shaped by violence, displacement and a persistent lack of opportunity—with profound long-term consequences for the Syrian Arab Republic, the region and beyond. Our Global Citizenship Briefs will assist you in teaching your students about the conflict and how they can take meaningful action to improve the situation for Syrian children. We invite you to peruse the resources below to bring current events and human rights issues into your global education classroom.
