Dr. Jacqueline Bhabha, director of research at the Harvard FXB Center for Health and Human Rights, will consider the Syrian crisis against the backdrop of best practices in child protection and the human rights imperative of ensuring that the needs and voices of children do not go unheeded. Joining her will be Mohamad Al Bardan, executive director, American Relief Coalition for Syria (ARCS), and Nousha Kabawat, founder and director of Amal ou Salam. Alexandra Chen, specialist in child protection and the mental health of refugees in conflict and post-conflict zones, will offer a response.
