Description

The conflict in Syria is now about much more than Bashar al-Assad. As the ISIS offensive in Northern Iraq and the refugee crises in Lebanon and Jordan have shown, it has spilled over Syria's porous borders. Foreign fighters have gone to Syria from at least 81 countries and from all parts of the globe.

What are the tangible impacts of these foreign fighters? What happens when they are there? How should the West respond? And why does Islamic extremism attract so many?

Richard Barrett is a former British diplomat and intelligence officer and is currently senior vice president of The Soufan Group, a security intelligence service. From March 2004 to January 2013, he headed the United Nations Monitoring Team concerning al-Qaeda and the Taliban.

Speaker: Richard Barrett
