Why New Syrian?
The Syrian crisis has revealed a profound threat to human, geography and the Syrian identity. Therefore, it is essential to make every effort to re-collect the Syrian diaspora. This requires, above all else, the formation of a new awareness and the rehabilitation of the Syrian revolution as a national liberation movement by relieving the Syrians of the consequences of war thought, and healing the society from the historical damages that preceded the crisis which paved the way for the masses to follow the slogans of sectarian and radical ideologies imposed by the regime and then established by the foreign extremist forces coming from outside the border.
Objectives & Message

Audience & Language
Online, Social and Digital Media.
Through its multimedia platform (including www.newsyrian.net and social media) New Syrian interacts with Syrian audience and provides the necessary information and analysis about what is going around the Syrians so that they can figure out the challenges of their future and be ready to deal with and overcome such challenges and achieve their ambitions.
The New Syrian digs into the cultural and social heritage that contributed to the formation of the Syrian personality in an attempt to isolate the ideas that hinder the Syrians from advancing. It is a project to form the personality/identity of the New Syrian whom the project aims to contribute to its creation.
The NewSyrian.Net introduces insightful reports and analysis, bold and hard topics that discuss a wide spectrum of social and religious affairs. Likewise, it debates matters of human rights and political education, as well as entrepreneurship and capacity building issues.
