How can we promote diversity in the economy?

Qamishli, NE Syria | Oct, 22, 2021


About the event

  • The impact of the security and political situation on the economy?

  • The effects of Caesar's Act? What are the constraints? What are the exceptions?

  • The impact of the closure of both the Yaarobia and the Semalka border crossing on the economic situation? How can political differences be separated from trade?

  • How do corruption and economic monopoly affect the state of diversity in the economy? What are the reasons why all components in the economic sectors are not participating, and services are managed equally?

  • In the absence of strict control mechanisms, businesses and traders are in control of supply and demand. For example, the lack of laws to protect against exploitation leads to high demand for housing and necessities, which have a significant impact on IDPs, and the absence of consumer laws affects not only IDPs but also young people and women

  • The absence of strategic planning of available economic resources, where many believe that the involvement of social components in economic resource management and their ability to access services is marred by many challenges, has made the relationship between components and Autonomous Administration more of a client relationship

On October 22, 2021, TEVIN organized a panel in the city of Qamishli to discuss these questions and the following speakers were invited:

  • Salman Barodo: The co-chair of the Agriculture and Economy Body in North and East Syria.

  • Mahmoud Jamil: Lawyer and judge in the Social Justice Bureau, official spokesperson of the Serêkaniyê IDPs Forum.


  • Khabat Abbas: is an independent journalist and video producer based in Northern Syria.
