About the event
Despite the Covid-19 conditions of closure and the travel ban, the Constitutional Committee concluded the fifth round of negotiations that are taking place under the auspices of the United Nations in Geneva. Frustration seemed to prevail with all local and international parties after the end of the round, and the two parties were also unable to make any tangible progress under the authority of the United Nations Special Envoy for Syria, Mr. Pedersen. Despite the state of frustration, some believe that there is still a glimmer of hope represented by the position that the new US administration will take under President Biden, as its position could constitute a strong lever and momentum for the Syrian negotiations.
On the other hand, the possibility of civil society organizations playing a greater role in the political process still exists, so during this two-day meeting we will discuss how to strengthen the role of civil society organizations in northeastern Syria and Iraqi Kurdistan as one of the tracks of the political process.
