English-Language Disinformation about the Syrian Conflict

In 2022, The Syria Campaign commissioned ISD and CASM to conduct a digital investigation to help examine the extent of English-language disinformation about the Syrian conflict from 2015-2021. This analysis formed the basis of The Syria Campaign’s report, Deadly Disinformation: How Online Conspiracies about Syria Cause Real-World Harm. Beam was deployed in this context to assess the narratives and targets of disinformation about Syria, and how both had evolved on social media over a seven-year timeline.
