Turkey's Syrian Quagmire

Didem Collinsworth, Crisis Group's Turkey and Cyprus Analyst, and Noah Bonsey, Senior Syria Analyst, report from the Turkey-Syrian border. Didem discusses the terrible conditions many Syrian refugees find in Turkey, despite a massive humanitarian response by the Turkish government, while Noah analyzes the fighting and atrocities that have driven so many residents from Aleppo and surrounding territory.

Filmmaker Dan Evans and I traveled to the region in February 2014 as part of the On the Frontlines shoot. Dan captured all footage, while I handled audio and logistics. The piece was edited by me and Corinne Chin.
