Syria Media Map

This report provides an assessment of the media sector in Syria as of early 2013. It includes a summary of the media framework, information on freedom of expression, and details of both state and government media, and private media. The report also provides recommendations for future interventions in the media sector.

The report acts as the starting information for the IWPR Media Wiki site for Syria, available at As the media sector in Syria is constantly changing, the media wiki site offers an open, collaborative platform for registered users to update, correct, and add to information regarding the Syrian media sector. Institutions and individuals involved in the sector are encouraged to use and contribute to the Wiki, which is moderated by IWPR.
