Where is the voice of Syrians in the peace process?

A Syrian-led, Syrian-owned political process will be the foundation on which a new Syria will be built. By bringing together Syrian civil society in a secure space where they can express their priorities and propose solutions—whether through a forum, roundtable discussions, or position papers—and ensuring that this feeds into the UN-led peace process, this could be Canada’s greatest contribution to lasting peace in Syria.
