Three contributions by scholars on Syria are included in this issue:
1 - The Syrian Civil War and Turkey-Syria-Iran Relations by Özden Zeynep Oktav
2 - Sunni Islamists in Tripoli and the Asad regime 1966-2014 by Tine Gade
3 - Coping with Asad: Lebanese Prime Ministers’ Strategies by Taku Osoegawa
The focus is on recent political dynamics involving Turkey and Lebanon, and the findings consistently point to just how charged and often hostile Syria’s relationships with its neighbours have been.
