WUNRN-Women’s UN Report Network
In the fifth year of a pervasive and protracted conflict, the objective of this landmark Syrian Women’s Rights Worksho is to give comprehensive updates on the situation in Syria through a gendered lens,. to further support the advocacy work of Syrian women’s rights activists, and to provide them with expanded space to advocate for women’s full and meaningful role in the peace negotiations and process in Syria. The participation of women and women’s rights defenders in the transitional process is a fundamental requirement for a sustainable peace and a democratic future in Syria.
