Abstract

The ongoing conflict in Syria has led to distortions in agriculture, food production and availability, distribution and consumption, with attendant effects on food insecurity and malnutrition.

narrow and fragile and requires attention. A Round Table (RT) meeting was held in June 2019 to provide a platform for Syrian academics in exile in Turkey to share their expertise and to initiate a discussion about transition strategies away from short-term emergency aid to long-term food and health security with other researchers, relevant decision-makers, international and local (including Syrian) NGOs and responders to the crisis. This resulted in a number of outcomes:

– Strengthened and extended partnerships between researchers, practitioners and decision-makers in the UK, Syria and countries in the region receiving Syrian academics in exile (primarily Turkey).

– Identification of an important role for knowledge broker organisations at the interface between researchers, decision-makers and practitioners to ensure knowledge mobilisation across different organisational and disciplinary boundaries.
