The conference was organized by the Center for Counter Hegemonic Studies (CCHS), founded in early 2016 and directed by Professor Tim Anderson of Sydney University. The conference was titled ‘After the War on Syria: Imperialism, Independence and Human Rights’. Here is a brief description of the conference by the organizers: “This two-day conference will critically explore self-determination and imperialism in Syria and the wider region, corporate media presentations of the war, the ‘humanitarian war’ narrative, the geopolitical repercussions and the roots of the war on Syria.”
