Abstract: Assad army, backed by Russian and Iranian allies, has recaptured the city of Aleppo, which might be a major victory for President Assad in Syria’s six-year-long civil war. It is not the same city the rebels and the regime were first fighting for. It has dramatically changed. Much of it has become in ruins. Much of it has been lost. Most of its people have been traumatised as thousands have died and many more have been detained or displaced. Nothing seems to be real for the people in Aleppo except the sound of war. Aleppo, as it was before the civil war, has become a memory.

Keywords: Syrian conflict, Aleppo, civil war

Research area: Research Area 2: The Dynamics of Normative Orders: Rupture, Change, Continuity
Research project: Formation of a New Gender Order in Tunisia after the Revolution
