About the Event

The Syrian Democratic Council (SDC) was established in 2015 as the political and governance wing of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to provide political representation and re-establish stability in the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES). Since its inception the SDC has worked to establish local and representative governance structures for the people of northeast Syria.

This conversation will address the partnership between the United States and the SDC in the AANES, persistent challenges stemming from ISIS’ physical and ideological presence in the region, threats to stability posed by regional actors, and the prospects for increased economic opportunity and growth.
