Jordan on the Frontline: An International Town Hall

Jordan on the Frontline: An International Town Hall

The Middle East today is more unstable than ever. The war in Syria has created a tremendous humanitarian crisis, with more than three million refugees having fled to neighboring countries, and the rise of ISIS has destabilized Iraq and Syria and threatens other countries in the region. 

Sitting right in the middle of all this instability is the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, a key US ally. 

To better understand the war in Syria, the huge influx of refugees, and the rise of ISIS, America Abroad -- in collaboration with public radio station WHYY and the Jordan Media Institute -- hosted a town-hall dialogue connecting audiences in Philadelphia and Amman.

Join hosts Jacki Lyden and Yusuf Mansur along with a team of experts for a discussion of the critical issues facing Jordan and the Middle East today.
