In 2021, the MWMN launched and brought forward the initiative “The role of women in the elaboration of durable solutions to the Syrian crisis”, in collaboration with the NGO Search for Common Ground and the support of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, to better understand the internal dynamics that have led to the marginalisation of Syrian women in the conflict resolution.
During the initiative, the MWMN and Search for Common Ground organised four webinars involving experts, 25 Syrian women activists and various network members with the aim of:

  • Promoting and supporting dialogue among Syrian women and with other women experts in the field;
  • Amplifying the voices of Syrian women;
  • Identifying key areas of future focus on which to build new initiatives inside and outside Syria.

The outcome of the initiative is a series of recommendations, formulated by the participants, addressed to the international community and non-governmental organisations working on Syria.

The recommendations are now available and can be accessed here (also in the long version).
