Al-Hall Net: “A Constitution That Protects Us”, a civil project in northeastern Syria to submit recommendations to the United Nations


On Saturday, a Syrian civil organization, in cooperation with the US State Department, held a session in the city of Qamishlo, north of Hasaka, to launch a project entitled “A Constitution That Protects Us” targeting the components of the regions of northeastern Syria.

The project aims to submit a set of recommendations to the United Nations for their observance during the drafting of a constitution for the country, or even in the event of reconsidering the formation of the Constitutional Committee.

According to Avin Sheikhmous, member of the media office at Ezdina Organization, "The project came after conducting a group of questionnaires since 2019 for the components in northeastern Syria, and it was found that many Syrians in these areas are still not adequately informed about the path of the Constitutional Committee, its working mechanism, and how it is formed".

Sheikhmous added in a statement to Al-Hall Net, "The project will continue for three months, including holding 18 sessions in several cities in the region, while targeting five groups, namely, media professionals, youth, women and clerics, in addition to community leaders".

According to the facilitator of the session, Omar Ali, “the mechanism for holding the sessions is done by presenting an idea about the nine Geneva conferences, and then how to form the constitutional committee and its working mechanism, and what was formed, as well as the decision-making mechanism.”

Ali expected in a statement to Al-Hall Net, that the outputs of the project will have "an impact on the committee's work and its performance," indicating that there are "criticisms about the existence of a lack of representation for the components of northeastern Syria, given that there is no representation of the Autonomous Administration in north and east Syria, while it is assumed that there will be representation for all, according to what was stipulated in the decision to form the Constitutional Committee".

According to Ezdina, the project “A Constitution That Protects Us” working for a future that guarantees the rights of everyone, was carried out and sponsored by the US State Department, and in coordination with the DT Institute.

The announcement of the formation of the Constitutional Committee, in 2019, was accompanied by objections from Syrian political parties, especially Kurds, as the Constitutional Committee consists of 150 people, including only 7 Kurdish representatives.

The small committee consisting of 45 people emanated from the Constitutional Committee, representing three parties: the Syrian government, the opposition and civil society in equal measure. However, all the meetings of the small committee have been described as "failed" so far.

The decision-making mechanism in the Constitutional Committee includes obtaining the approval of 75% of the members of the committee, which is considered extremely difficult when trying to discuss and make decisions related to crucial issues, which are very sensitive to the parties participating in the committee.
