Over the past few months, forces loyal to the Syrian government have made significant advances in eastern Aleppo. Capturing the strategically important city has been a crucial military triumph for the Assad regime and a huge blow to Syria’s armed opposition. What follows in the weeks ahead has huge implications for the future of the Syrian conflict and the complex web of regional agendas and rivalries that surround it.

Will the Syrian conflict move closer to an end with the fall of Aleppo or will it enter a new phase of prolonged violence? What are the prospects of reviving the UN-Syrian peace talks? How will the United States respond to the crisis under a Trump administration? Join us in a Brookings Doha Center policy discussion as speakers Moaz Al-Khatib, Daniel Byman, and Louay Safi, explore the current status of the complex Syrian conflict, the options for the new Trump administration, and the roles being played by an ever-expanding list of actors.
