“Words in Context” a database for analyzing online discourse

The “Words in context” database is now available on a web platform. It was developed by the researchers of Project Someone, of which co-holder Vivek Venkatesh is a member. This database was aimed at critically analyzing online discourses on themes and topics of interest for Lebanon and its neighbours in the year 2018. It also includes Canadian data collected in 2016 and 2017. 

The web platform is divided into several themes, each of which is presented as a policy brief. This information will be used to contribute to decision-making and policy formulation by researchers and public policy-makers, as well as to contribute to social action, counter-terrorism stories and related practices of practitioners and community leaders internationally.
