On February 6, 2023, one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded in the Levant struck southern and central Turkey and northern and western Syria. More than 58,000 people died and the earthquakes and its aftershocks caused catastrophic damage to infrastructure across the affected region. A year on, millions of people are still rebuilding their lives, particularly in the most severely impacted provinces in Turkey and in war-torn northwest Syria.

Soon after the earthquake struck, a panel jointly organized by LISD, SPIA and PIIRS explored its short-term effects, focusing on humanitarian concerns. On Friday, February 9, 2024, we will reconvene to discuss the longer-term humanitarian, political, and economic impacts of the earthquake.
