Plan: Moving forward in Syria


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 (, should you have any questions or comments related to the paper or others related to NAFS programme.

  1. Weren’t the last elections in Syria monitored by 50 different countries? And didn’t Assad win that election with 88.7% of the votes? When was the last time a Western election was monitored by 50 different countries to ensure it’s legitimacy? Never? Syrian elections are likely already more legitimate than the dog and pony show Western elections, where traitorous prostitutes with zero integrity slander each-other in a race to see who will become the next PR puppet of the kosher nostra.
