New Publication WPCS | Dismantling Networks of Resistance and the Reconfiguration of Order in Southern Syria | Abdullah Al-Jabassini

MEDirections is delighted to share a new Policy Brief from the Wartime and Post-Conflict in Syria project (WPCS)

The 2021 Daraa al-Balad crisis and its outcomes have opened a new chapter in the history of southern Syria. The trajectory of the conflict, the terms of the final agreement and the ensuing proliferation of new ‘reconciliation’ processes reveal a clear shift in Moscow’s approach in southern Syria. The recent agreements reconfigure local orders and allow the Syrian regime to deconstruct networks of resistance and expand its security control in parts of the south.
