The Syrian Civil War remains one of the most complicated conflicts in the world today. The following interview breaks down the drivers, causes, and future of a civil war that has displaced more than half of the country’s population.

At the 2016 Religious Liberty Partnership consultation, I sat down with Middle East expert Jonathan Andrews. Andrews was with Middle East Concern for more than 10 years and is now an independent writer and researcher. His recent book Identity Crisis: Religious Registration in the Middle East explores an interesting facet of religious liberty in the Middle East.

In the following interview, Andrews provides his perspective on how the Syrian Civil War started, where the war is now, and where things might be headed.
