dc.description.abstract What are the main drivers for the Syrian conflict and how can they be mitigated? This thesis assesses two different explanatory propositions. The first attributes to the conflict domestic sectarian and communitarian contentions, amid rising Sunni-Alawi power imbalance. The second blames growing socio-economic disparities between different regions and groups. Both views suggest that international factors have helped incite domestic strife. The thesis examines both views and highlights an alternative interpretation rooted in globalization theory and the double movement, as being responsible for the deterioration of state power and the incubation of socio-economic and communitarian grievances. The study explores various conflict mitigation models and assesses their abilities to provide satisfactory exit strategy to current impasse. It highlights the prominence of international players in any future reconciliation. en_US
