Syria Spillover (part 2)

Are Lebanon's fears of being dragged into Syria's conflict becoming reality? With Lebanon's leaders unable to prevent tit-for-tat cross-border kidnappings, François Picard’s panel looks at what the possibility of regime change in Damascus may mean for its neighbour, and in particular for Assad ally Hezbollah.

  • Hisham JABER. Director, Center for Middle East Studies (from Beirut);
  • Elie ABDEL-HAYE. Coordinator, 'March 14 Forces' (opposition);
  • Pierre ROUSSELIN. Senior Editor, Le Figaro
  • David SCHENKER. Director, Program on Arab Politics, The Washington Institute (from Washington).

Produced by François Picard, Anelise Borges, Mary Colombel, Shamira Muhammad.
