Dr Christopher Phillips appeared on Newsnight’s report about the Syrian uprising, commenting that the Syrian government believe that they could stay in power, with a smaller social base but powerful security force, unless the West chooses to intervene as they did in Libya. While Syria's deputy oil minister defected this week, the government has remained otherwise unified. Dr Phillips also appeared on BBC Radio 5 Live.
