Finally! Our Research on the Politicization of the Syrian-Lebanese Diasporas in Latin America is available in English.
In the following report, we examine the politicization paths of the Syrian-Lebanese Diasporas in the context of the Syrian conflict, shedding the light on these little-known communities in Venezuela, Brazil and Argentina.
We analyse, in particular, the different reasons why these communities overwhelmingly support the Syrian regime: anti-Imperialism, solidarity with the Eastern Christians and influence of an ancient Alawite community in Argentina.
This research was published in the French book “Pas de Printemps pour la Syrie”, La Découverte, December 2013. We would like to express our appreciation to Pol O Beaglaoich for translating our work. Check our report on our website.
