What are the causes of the Syrian Revolution (2011)?
The Syrian Revolution is important on many levels. This importance is explored in the aspects of Syria’s political government, economic and social status and the beginning of a wide spread resistance against dominating governments taking part in the Middle East. Hence, the Syrian Revolution plays a significant impact on the modern world and the future of the Syrian population. In March, 2011 an uprising took place by poor and unsatisfied citizens in the capital of Syria, Aleppo, as a major part of the Arab Spring (a series of revolts in triggered by citizens demanding law reforms and an improved government in the Middle East). Rebel groups then developed as a source of rebellion against the government of Bashar Al Assad, including The Syrian Muslim Brotherhood. Countries such as Tunisia, Egypt and Libya heavily influence the revolt in Syria after their protests and riots, in their own countries, to achieve justice from their governments, have been reached but not entirely resolved. This topic has an excessive importance over me and my family. It has broadened my understanding of the world and the extent individuals will go to for power. The Syrian Revolution also impacts me culturally due to me originating from the Middle East. It has demanded the attention of the social media and people all over the world. I believe it will become an immense icon in modern history over the years to come and that it will also lead to a colossal change in current Syrian society and for the further generations. To conclude, the Syrian Revolution of 2011 is of great significance to modern society and the future of modern history for the world as well as Syrian citizens.
