Project Description

One of our main target audiences is youth and we would like assistance in monitoring social media and online sources to determine the individuals and online presences that influence youth. What are the topics and issues that UAE youth care most about? Depending on the intern’s interest, assignments could be assigned both as long-term research projects or as quick turnaround short items. Arabic proficiency is a must as we would like the interns to delve into both English and Arabic-language sources.
