A paper in the field of environmental governance and climate change.
The topic is the Syrian conflict that is happening now, the mass migration in process: What are the implications of climate change on the conflict. There are a lot of articles in the literature discussing how climate change may have helped spark this war, like other times climate change induced violence/conflict in Africa.
What are the implications in terms of food security, and on the conflict itself? What does that mean for the international community, policies by governments, and the ecological footprint?
How does that affect the contemporary notions of sovereignty and statehood in countries affected ex: Syria, US, Iran, Russia?
What are potential steps, taken from other examples in history, that can be implemented in Syria or elsewhere towards resilience in terms of climate change, mass-migration and conflict.
Each point should be supported with an example from the literature. The thesis and argument should be around the Syrian war and climate change. Examples from a different context has to be tied back to the main topic (ex: an example from the “Arab Spring” revolutions. The main subject is environmental governance, and not international relations so this is something to keep in mind.
Questions in here are not exhaustive of potential critical questions you can raise on this issue.
