Our international advocacy program brings our knowledge of the field and media expertise to the attention of decision-makers and the wider public. We power innovative media tools that are exposing the realities of war in Syria to the European audience, as against the information spread by traditional and official media.
In addition to our programs targeted towards women, youth, and civilians at large, 2016 was the year ASML/Syria embarked on a broad extension of its international advocacy strategy to reach the world’s most important decision-makers. In a beleaguered country, isolated in many ways, our conviction is that the footage recorded across Syria by our networks of journalists should reach the forums where policies and strategies are crafted.
By conveying the work of Syrian journalists, we aim to promote a different perspective on the war: one grounded in the practical realities of war, away from traditional representations depicted in mainstream media.
