The dialogue session, which lasted for about three hours, dealt with several axes on the work of the Syrian Constitutional Committee and its establishment, the Geneva conferences and their results, the political process in Syria, and Resolution 2254 of the United Nations Security Council on a ceasefire, and how to reach a political settlement of the situation in Syria.

The session was moderated by Dr. Abeer Hassaf, and a member of the Constitutional Committee, Dr. Dorsen Oskan.

Basman Al-Assaf, said that the political process in Geneva is a crisis management process only, because the Syrian crisis has turned into a crisis of the international community.

Al-Assaf added that the Geneva conferences were in order to preserve the reputation of the international community, pointing out that whoever was supervising them certainly knew that they were useless.

Al-Assaf pointed out that all countries affirmed the importance of Resolution 2254, but the dispute is over the mechanism of its implementation and some of its articles.

In turn, the activist in the Civil Peace Council, Mousa Issa, confirmed that many regions were initially not represented in the constitutional committee.

Issa added that the North and East of Syria is represented by representatives from the opposition or the Syrian regime, but the Autonomous Administration is absent for political reasons, but it is not representative of the entire region it administers.

For his part, human rights activist, Bahram Hesso explained that the most important thing than drafting the constitution is its actual implementation, and that the new constitution, will not restore confidence among all components, and will not be different from previous constitutions.

Hesso added that the people of different components need to accept each other, and accept each other's cultures, so that they can coexist in the region.

A member of the Constitutional Committee, Dr. Dorsen Oskan, spoke via the Zoom about the nine Geneva meetings, and about the lack of seriousness of all parties in order to reach a solution to the Syrian crisis.

Oskan added that constitutional issues were addressed in only one Geneva conference, while the rest of the sessions were a waste of time and procrastination from the participating parties.

In turn, the session facilitator, Dr. Hassaf, spoke about the establishment and composition of the Constitutional Committee and the drawbacks of representing the Committee, in addition to talking about the main reasons for the failure of the Constitutional Committee in its work so far.

At the conclusion of the dialogue session, the attendees agreed on a set of recommendations and proposals to be submitted to the Syrian Constitutional Committee, which included:

  • The state system is decentralized and pluralistic.
  • The system of government is a parliamentary republic.
  • Not specifying the gender, race and religion of the Syrian president.
  • Country name: Republic of Syria.
  • Preparing for the pre-constitution stage.
  • Formation of Syrian committees to draft the constitution.
  • Separation of religion and state.
