Three Purdue University Calumet international affairs faculty experts will discuss tension and turmoil in Syria during a campus forum at 5 p.m., Thursday (9/12) in Room 130 of the Powers Building.

The Syrian Quagmire

In their presentation, titled “The Syrian Quagmire,” Associate Professor of Political Science Richard Rupp, Assistant Professor of Political Science Margaret Rincker and Valentino Martinez, also a retired State Department official, will share their perspectives about the Syrian Civil War, prospects for a wider regional war, and related questions facing America and its citizens.

“My colleagues and I have been following Presidential-Congressional relations and the issue of war powers for many years,” Rupp said. “We have never seen anything quite like this.”
