Project Description

February 2021

This policy brief addresses the effects and consequences of systematic legal exclusion, social marginalisation, and the regime’s punitive practices in perpetuating Syrian women’s vulnerability and promoting their legal and societal exclusion.  It is based on a series of field consultations organised by Dawlaty and WILPF, in partnership with  Syrian feminist and women-led partner organisations working in Syria: Zenobia, Release Me, Nophotozone, Start Point, Syrian Women Survivors, and Damma. It concludes with pertinent recommendations to the international community, the UN, and actors developing and supporting gender-sensitive transitional justice mechanisms in Syria.
