A Simulation on Using Social Media to shape Syria

How social media can influence the #syrianconflict

You understand the value of simulations but want to do something to help.  Like in Syria.  Take a look at this partnership program between the non-governmental organization oneblue.org, a group that develops strategies to transform conflict and Georgetown University’s Conflict Resolution program in the Department of Government.

The sim will explore intergroup conflict–similar to a present day Cuban Missile Crisis only its happening right now–by considering American/Russian, Sunni/Shiite, and Arab/Israeli tensions and how they directly shape the Syrian conflict.

Also, a Q&A will be hled with Ahmad Beetar of Aleppo, Syria and Oneblue’s community solutions program fellow.

See the program at OneBlue and follow it on Twitter at #syrianconflict
