Syrian Forum’s Key Objectives

The challenges for displaced Syrian refugees are formidable. Still, Syrian Forum is committed to fostering economic development and creating employment opportunities for Syrians in need. We work to empower and develop Syrian civil society and invest in local administration. In addition to developing Syrian institutions in order to promote efficiency, integrity, and professionalism in civil society.

Plus, long-term change comes by reinforcing a political culture with the capacity to develop and strengthen democratic institutions in Syria. As well as offering strategic solutions and policy alternatives in matters related to Syria and its surrounding region.
