Despite six years of incoherent policy, Western countries can still positively shape Syria’s post-conflict settlement. This may be their last chance.

This Expert Comment coincides with the publication in March 2017 of a Research Paper called Western Policy Towards Syria: Applying Lessons Learned. The team of contributors conclude that over the past six years, there has been a significant gap between the West’s rhetoric and its actions in Syria. Western policymakers must learn from their mistakes to form a more effective strategy.
