The Conflict Impact on Social Capital
Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs at American University of Beirut
Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs at AUB hosted the launch of SCPR report The Social Degradation in Syria, on Thursday, 1st of June 2017, 12 PM to 2:30 PM. The Social Degradation report explores the impact of the armed conflict in Syria on social relations. It uses the concept of social capital as an approach to analyzing trust, cooperation, and shared values. The research develops a composite index to measure social capital based on multi-purpose field surveys. The analysis of this index over time and regions, detailing its components and studying its determinants, helps discern the state of social degradation in Syria. The report proposes alternative policies to overcome the catastrophic social impact of the conflict.
