Centre for Syrian Studies April Seminar Is Syria back to the Arab fold?

After more than ten years of isolation and suspension from the Arab League, the Syrian regime is now embraced by the Arab World as key Arab States such like United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia are restoring ties with the Assad regime. This normalization would have significant implications for the future of the conflict and might redraw the geopolitical map.
