The conference gathered more than 80 members of Syrian civil society, researchers, experts and practitioners from the region in addition to regional and international stakeholders such as organisations, donors, state representatives and academics.
SLDP provided a presentation on issues around reconstruction, Justice, Housing Land and Property rights, and Law No. 10 within “The future of Syria: transition, reconstruction and return” panel. Key points raised focused on the role businesses, including Jordanian businesses, i
n not contributing to crimes committed in Syria or supporting the war criminals that committed them. It also shed light on the importance of not allowing the rhetoric of reconstruction take away from need for accountability and justice.
