War in Syria: where do Kurds stand?

For years the Kurds were persecuted and oppressed but since the Syrian war broke out in 2011, they have enjoyed a certain autonomy in the northeast region close to Turkey and Iraq. Laura Cellier and her panel revisit Syria and look at the impact of the fighting on the country's largest minority - the Kurds.

William JORDAN, Former State Department official
Elias WARDE, Member, Syrian National Council
Shwan ZULAL, Kurdish blogger
Barak BARFI, Research fellow, New America Foundation
Majid RAFIZADEH, Lecturer, Oxford University

Programme produced and prepared by Annelise Borges, Dheepthi Namasivayam and Diaraye Bah.
