A Syria Coverage Case Study

Internews commissioned a pilot study to look at how two prominent Arab-language news organizations, BBC Arabic and Al Jazeera Arabic, have used social media and user-generated content – photos and videos taken by members of the public – to provide coverage of the uprising in Syria.

The study was initiated by Jamal Dajani, the Internews Vice President for MENA designed and commissioned by Internews’ Center for Innovation and Learning working in collaboration with the  Center for Global Communication Studies at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania.
