Mapping authority, legitimacy and development
Mapping Syria is an innovative new platform that was designed to overcome the challenges of collecting and framing data for research purposes in conflict zones. The platform maps institutional status, public authority and legitimacy, justice at the local level, and inclusive development, using innovative expert surveys as a measurement tool.
Led by LSE Ideas, the project sources its data through an extensive trained network of local researchers. Some data is available to access directly through the platform, as well as a series of reports based on analysis of the data.
So far, the project has conducted mapping of the governorates of Sweida, al Raqqa, Aleppo and Idleb, with more forthcoming.
