This week we compiled a series of Storify presentations about our perennial conflicts as well as “emerging” conflicts. Storify collects information from all over the web (e.g. tweets, articles, videos, etc.) and presents it in narrative form. To see a presentation, simply click on the conflict you want to learn more about. As always feel free to provide your additions, comments, or critiques in the comments section or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Nadine Fattaleh is STAND's Syria Conflict Coordinator and a student at Columbia University.
Looking through a newsfeed for the crisis in Syria would show photos of destruction: the destruction of buildings, infrastructure, relationships, families and lives. But photos of the conflict capture one moment; they show the indescribable cost of war to the people who live in its reality. However, in capturing a single moment, photos take away from the historical context of the war and its broader implications.
