Joakim Medin is a swedish freelance journalist and has made several trips to Syria to report about the development on the ground, the atrocities of warring parties, and the refugee crisis before it even leaves the country. He spent seven weeks working in Syria this summer. The conflict soon turns five years old, and has evolved into a world war. Who are the different actors in it? What kind of situation, oppression and massacres is the civil population escaping from? And what is the surrounding world doing against it?

Joakim will also be selling his book Syrien – Revolutionen, makten och människorna .

No entrance fee, no advance reservations and everyone is welcome!
When? 18.00 – 20.00
Where? Lecture Hall A, Lindell
