This country case study examines the media of one of the world’s most censored societies. The report finds that the Syrian media is under increasing threat but identifies growing use of new media to circumvent old restrictions.

Publication date: August 2012

Overview: This report is one of a series of case studies examining support to, and development of, the media in countries where media freedoms and rights to information and communication are restricted – with a particular focus on people, politics and media.

Five case studies focus on Bangladesh, Cambodia, South Sudan, Syria and Uganda. They consider the impact of both policy and practice, and are intended to feed into decision-making at both levels to enable delivery of more focused and effective media support.
