Turkish-Syrien border region

I was in Mardin and its surrounding region with the ASAM team this weekend: Despite of a wonderful and interesting time in this amazing region, a slightly weird feeling appeared being so close to Syria – behind the border at the horizon there is a war
which has lasted for over three years and caused a massive refugee influx! So close to all this suffering, killing, violence, despair, and sorrow! With IS growing even stronger nowadays it looks even more unlikely that peace will return to that region very soon! The consequences of that we cannot predict, but the international community should be much more aware of the developments here and especially more active in peace processes!
