We believe that the active participation of Syrian civil society in the peace process is paramount for building sustainable peace in Syria.
Since 2010 SCM has held NGO consultative status at the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations (ECOSOC). This grants us access to UN bodies such as the Human Rights Council and the Special Procedures, and enables us to facilitate access to other Syrian civil society organisations.
In 2017, we are facilitating Syrian civil society advocacy efforts through the UN human rights system, and to Syrian and international political actors with a concentration on the Human Rights Council and other Geneva-based bodies.
We also provide technical support to Syrian civil society organisations on the workings of the UN human rights system.
