Join Pulitzer Center grantee Reese Erlich on Thursday, June 25, as he expands upon his field experiences in Syria and introduces "Inside Syria: the Backstory of Their Civil War and What the World Can Expect," his latest book that covers his reporting from many trips to the region.

Erlich has reported from Syria over the years, and since the uprising began, he has interviewed Syrian rebels and civilians in Syria, Lebanon, Turkey, and Iraqi Kurdistan. Erlich's dispatches include those from three Pulitzer Center-support projects: "Arab Spring in Syria, Egypt and Gaza" in 2011, "Bahrain's Forgotten Uprising" in 2012 and "How Assad Hangs On" in 2013.

The Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, DC, hosts Erlich, a foreign correspondent and investigative reporter, for its Foreign Policy In Focus (FPIF) brown bag discussion: "Inside Syria". FPIF is a project of the Institute for Policy Studies and describes itself as a "'Think Tank Without Walls' connecting the research and action of more than 600 scholars, advocates, and activists seeking to make the United States a more responsible global partner."
