We're watching: Frontline: Syria Behind the Lines

Description: In presenting viewers with two opposing views of Syria's raging civil war, Frontline: Syria Behind the Lines, provides a provocative backdrop to questions about humanitarian intervention, the evolving norm of Responsibility to Protect and the human element of armed conflict. Joining us to explore the issues raised by the documentary will be Josh Rubenstein, Author, Associate at Harvard University’s Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies and former Northeast Regional Director of Amnesty International USA, and Michael Foley, brother of abducted freelance journalist Jim Foley, thought to be held in captivity in Syria since November 2012.

All's fair in love and war. Or is it?

In fulfilling the role of community educator in the fundamentals of International Humanitarian Law, The American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts is presenting its first IHL Film and Forum Series, where, touching on concepts raised on the Big Screen, the very foundational ideals of International Humanitarian Law can be challenged, prodded, and ultimately reinforced.
