Ezdina Organization held its first dialogue session in the town of Tirbespiyê/Al-Qahtaniya, as part of its project "A Constitution That Protects Us" in Northeastern Syria, on the work of the Constitutional Committee and the Geneva conferences.

The session, which is considered the fifteenth session, was held in the Yazidi house in the town of Tirbespiyê/Al-Qahtaniya, in the presence of young women and men including media professionals, civil activists and university students.
  • Civic activist, Avin Jamil.
  • Yazidi activist, Lava Sharro.
  • Teacher, Hassan Kano.
  • Hawar Agency reporter, Renas Remo.
  • Field researcher, Orama Hanna.
  • University student, Yaqoub Asmar.
  • Aso News Network reporter, Suleiman Mano.
  • Kurdish language teacher, Suleiman Haji.
The media activist Barzan Isso had also participated the session as an honor guest via the Zoom.

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, while a member of the Constitutional Committee, Dr. Dorsen Oskan, participated in the session via the Zoom.

During the session, field researcher Orama Hanna said that young people and women are absent from participating in the Constitutional Committee and other international platforms, pointing out that if there is representation, they will not participate in the constitutional committee.

In turn, civil activist Yaser Khalaf explained that it was the youth who ignited the revolution and went on the streets, with all their components, religions and nationalities, but the concepts of the revolution changed and directions differed over time.

Khalaf added that Kurdish youth took the third line and demanded their own rights like other groups and components, pointing to the importance of striving for self-development among young people and developing their region, and demanding that they have effective representation in international platforms.

Aso News Network correspondent Salman Mano pointed out the absence of projects that contribute to preserving young people in the region, the inability to benefit from their presence, and the issuance of decisions that contributed to the migration of young people abroad, which led to the West benefiting from the capabilities of the region's youth.

In turn, the media activist Barzan Isso, who attended the session as an honor guest via the “Zoom”, spoke about the experience of several countries during the preparation of their constitutions, including Spain and the position of Catalonia during its marginalization and collection of its rights.

Isso touched on the impact of the economy and its importance in drafting constitutions and preparing their articles.

The member of the Constitutional Committee, Dr. Dorsen Oskan, spoke 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 from the participating parties.

In turn, the session facilitator, Dr. Abeer 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:

• Youth participation in political decision-making.
• Determining a percentage of youth representation in parliament and local councils.
• Gender equality in politics, the economy, youth support and equal opportunities.
• Freedom of the press.
• Freedom of expression.
• Allocating a Ministry for Youth.
• Protection of female journalists.
• The right to establish organizations concerned with youth affairs.

• The right to learn in the mother tongue for all components.
