Lectures of the day: My dear Damascus

The Syrians call it al-azma – the crisis. That encompasses not only the country’s civil war but also its colossal socioeconomic collapse since the protests began in 2011.

In this lecture, based on her book My House in Damascus, which comes out in Norwegian translation this February, British journalist and author Diana Darke explains how the Arab Spring in Syria ended in a gruesome conflict and what ordinary life in wartime – because it does exist – is like.

In English.
