Preventing a Mobilization from Spreading: Assad and the Electronic War

Abstract : In March 2,011, a massive uprising broke out in Syria. It was quickly helped and fuelled by social media: social media activists linked the different protests and collected news to spread information outside Syria. The Assad regime attempted to counter this by using different tools which allowed the regime to survive by undermining public debate till today. Their own electronic services can be analyzed not only as an element of broader partnership (with foreign experts and companies) but also as a team which is guided by self-preserving values and interests.
