Online Resources

During the November 17, 2014 Conflicts in the Middle East discussion, participants were asked to identify resources they use to learn about such conflicts. The following list of resources is the result, and the New Narratives Series provides the list as a tool to aid making informed decisions regarding Conflicts in the Middle East.

This list is a direct reflection of the information gathered from participants on November 17, 2014, but it is not intended to be all-inclusive nor is it to be considered an endorsement of any of the resources. You are encouraged to use as many sources as possible when positioning yourself.

If you would like to provide additional resources, please do so by sending recommendations to falipsco@uci.edu. It is our hope that these resources support your fact-finding process.
