Syria: The shaping of a nation, then and now In the early 20th century, Syria was part of a region redrawn by outside forces. Today the 3-year-old uprising against the government of President Bashar al-Assad is generating the outlines of zones of control that could result in the partitioning of the country. The modern map of the Middle East was created by Europeans less than a century ago. Today, the conflict in Syria is calling into question the viability of those borders, which were frequently drawn with little regard for local communities. On the eve of the outbreak of World War l, most of the Middle East was part of the Ottoman Empire, itself an extension of the Islamic caliphate founded in the 7th century. A secret understanding between the British and the French to share the remnants of the defeated Ottoman Empire after World War I carved the region into two zones of influence.

Each book was written by a multidisciplinary team of social scientists, who sought to adhere to accepted standards of scholarly objectivity. Bilateral Relations Fact Sheets If It Were My Home Topics Index Partisanship, Propaganda, and Disinformation: Online Media and the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election | Berkman Klein Center Executive Summary In this study, we analyze both mainstream and social media coverage of the 2016 United States presidential election. We document that the majority of mainstream media coverage was negative for both candidates, but largely followed Donald Trump’s agenda: when reporting on Hillary Clinton, coverage primarily focused on the various scandals related to the Clinton Foundation and emails. We find that the structure and composition of media on the right and left are quite different. Our data supports lines of research on polarization in American politics that focus on the asymmetric patterns between the left and the right, rather than studies that see polarization as a general historical phenomenon, driven by technology or other mechanisms that apply across the partisan divide. The analysis includes the evaluation and mapping of the media landscape from several perspectives and is based on large-scale data collection of media stories published on the web and shared on Twitter.
