Through the Looking Glass (TTLG) – Episode 3: What should be done about Arab nationalism in Syria?
In today’s episode, I explore the topic of Syria and the issue of what should be done about Arab nationalism in Syria? I will explore the history of Pan-Arabism in the country, the rise of the Arab Socialist Ba’ath party to power and institutionalisation of Arab nationalism on a state level. Identifying discriminatory policies administered towards minorities such as Kurds and examining the consequences of this ideology in Syria today. The aim is to present a picture of Syria that is usually either ignored or downplayed and expand upon this idea of Syria, especially in relation to current affairs in the country.
