Syria after 2011: Transformations in politics, economics and society

Syria underwent profound and influential transformations after the outbreak of the revolution in 2011. This included various aspects; politics, economics and social life.

Although these transformations have not ended or settled, they have caused a profound impact on the structure of the Syrian regime, opposition, and community. Also, Syria today is no longer as it was 12 years ago, as the importance of major cities has declined in favour of parties that were marginalized earlier. In addition,  markets have declined, whereas others have emerged; as the structure of the economy as well as society has undergone great and profound changes.

This report sheds light on the most prominent transformations, the details associated with them, and their current and expected impact in the future, in a way that helps actors, stakeholders, and decision-makers to have a clear image about the size and level of change brought about by the revolution in Syria during the past years. 

This report does not aim to assess the transformations that Syria has undergone, but merely to describe them and identify the locations of change in a relative manner.
