SyriaUntold is an independent Arabic and English online media platform advancing critical perspectives on Syria and Syrians. We specialise in the dissemination of narrative features, investigative reports and in-depth analysis that illuminate social dynamics and civil society in Syria.

Founded in 2012 in Beirut, SyriaUntold has consistently tackled questions of critical importance to civilians, all the while amplifying voices on the margins of society. It began as an independent digital media project exploring the storytelling of the Syrian struggle and the diverse forms of resistance.

Our archives offer a rich collection of stories and creative acts of defiance in the face of authoritarianism that we believe should not be forgotten. We are proud to have insightful and regular contributions from Syrians on the ground as well as international Syria experts.

The SyriaUntold team is committed to tackling sensitive issues with professionalism and representing a broad variety of points of views. Our content, like our partnerships, aims to create a common space of discussion on social, cultural and civil society issues.

Journalists, academics, opinion-makers and creatives are invited to collaborate with us. Do send us your ideas at [email protected]
