About Transitional Period Policy Research Programme

In light of the current changes and challenges in Syria, SRCC launched a research and policy-oriented programme to revisit the related issues within the transitional research field in order to be a primary resource for the new transitional government, civic groups and activists. The SRCC will convene the most important indigenous stakeholders to formulate policy recommendations and implementation strategies, serve as a platform for dialogue about competing approaches and publish papers that outline the impending transition of power after President Bashar al-Assad vacates the office. The programme focuses on the following areas: rule of law, national reconciliation, armed forces, economic and political development, foreign policy, energy, health, education, water and agriculture, environment and tourism.
