On January 22, world leaders and representatives from different parts of Syrian society will meet to discuss the future of Syria at the Geneva II Conference.

Millions of lives are riding on this event, which offers the best chance of ending the violence and alleviating the suffering of the millions of Syrians caught up in the conflict.
