Faith-Based Reconciliation in Syria (Completed Program)

ICRD conducted faith-based reconciliation seminars for prominent civil society leaders from tribal Arab, Kurdish, Alawite, Syriac Christian, Shi’a and other Sunni communities aligned with the Syrian opposition. This program promoted peaceful coexistence among local communities, even in the midst of the national civil war, and prepared communities for rebuilding a future Syria. This led to the creation of a social contract in which community members committed to promoting inter-group reconciliation, collaborative problem-solving, and civil society empowerment. ICRD hopes to continue with this effort as future circumstances permit.
