The National Agenda for the Future of Syria (NAFS) Programme
Towards post-conflict reconciliation and rebuilding in Syria – by Syrians, for Syrians
Dear Colleagues and Partners,
On behalf of the National Agenda for the Future of Syria (NAFS) Programme, it is my pleasure to share with you our most recent study, Laying the Foundations for Future Elections in Syria
which gives an overview of the issues and challenges an electoral management body is likely to face in post-conflict Syria.
The study is the result of discussions held between distinguished Syrian electoral and legal experts, representatives of NAFS and the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), moderated by representatives of International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International IDEA).
The paper, which seeks to identify the best approach to meet the electoral challenges facing Syria, forms part of the broader efforts led by the NAFS Programme to involve Syrian experts in research, mapping and technical discussions on post-conflict recovery, rebuilding and reconciliation in Syria.
Do not hesitate to contact me, or the NAFS Team Leader for Governance, Institutions Building and Democratization, Ms. Rana Mitri ([email protected]), should you have any questions or comments related to the paper or others related to NAFS programme.
