Briefing about New Media and Syria Crisis at International Media Support

CRIC post.doc Donatella Della Ratta held a briefing session at International Media Support in Copenhagen the 18 September on the grassroots media outlets that have emerged in Syria in the context of the 2011 uprising.

Building on research commissioned by IMS, Donatella Della Ratta's presentation introduced the new media context shaped by Syria's uprising, underlining its main actors, and the challenges that are going to emerge in the near future.

Donatella Della Ratta's research focuses on non-sectarian and non-religious Syrian media outlets initiated by loose groups of civil society activists. However, the talk also briefly touched upon ISIS' social media strategy, as this topic seems to have caught the general public and international media's attention in the past months.
