What this blog is about

Syrian youth

The political turmoil sweeping the Middle East has hit Syrian shores. The so-called  “Syrian exception” has proved to be a fallacy. Change has become a reality.

Those leading the struggle for change are young people who have toppled dictators through a mastery of  new technology.  To know what the future holds for the Middle East and how this impacts the rest of the world, it is important to hear their voices.

I have been fortunate enough to be part of the Syrian revolution. I have been a lifelong opponent of the regime, and have spent the last eight years of my life serving the cause of democratic change in my country.

As a journalist, I have a healthy respect for the integrity of knowledge. Establishing facts and offering reasonable explanation is vital for the healthy functioning of any modern society. Only by being properly informed can individuals make correct choices.

That is why Syria in Transition aims to offer as true a picture of what is happening in Syria as possible. This blog will, I hope, make useful reading for media professionals, researchers and interested laypersons alike.
