This project studies the Syrian civil war from the vantage point of the refugees displaced by the fighting
First, public opinion surveys conducted among Syrian refugees in Jordan and Lebanon about international and domestic aspects of the war will shed light on refugee perceptions of the war's international dimension, including foreign efforts to support either the Syrian government or the rebels, intelligence-gathering, and conflict mediation. Second, the research seeks to examine refugee preferences over post-war outcomes, including governing institutions, minority rights, and transitional justice. The project will use survey experiments and unobtrusive measurement techniques designed to accommodate sensitive topics on surveys.
