Storify: Scholars, journalists and activists discuss the Syrian refugee crisis at daylong conference

On Feb. 26, USC Annenberg hosted a conference aimed at fostering a better understanding of the Syrian refugee crisis and how it originated. Organized by professor Diane Winston, who holds the Knight Chair in Media and Religion at USC Annenberg, and the Global Post, the event consisted of several panels, followed by a keynote address from the BBC's Paul Danahar.

The event was also sponsored by the Knight Program in Media and Religion, The GroundTruth Project, the Center for Religion and Civic Culture, the Levan Institute for Humanities and Ethics, the Center on Public Diplomacy and the USC Center for Islamic Thought, Culture and Practice.
