Key Issues

Tackling Extremism

Extremism and militancy in Syria is a problem for the region and the world. Dictatorship, along with poverty and ignorance has bred extremism, militancy and violence. This has helped to create bigger divisions in Syrian society. Having a civil democratic Syria is the best way to contain and defeat extremism because democracy would create necessary and legitimate channels for people to present their demands and grievances to the state.
