Join Our Network

NAFS has involved a large number of Syrians with the aim to support their efforts in thinking through the deep challenges confronting their society and the future of Syria. The ability of NAFS to maintain the safety and neutrality of this platform over the past ten years, and to continue expanding its network of Syrians at a time of increased polarization within Syrian society, is one of its main achievements, and a unique asset that ESCWA can offer to Syrian stakeholders for advancing thinking and debate on the country’s future.

NAFS is led by its expanding Syrian network, which is comprised of nearly 1200 Syrians from inside and outside the country who have been actively involved in its activities and events. Syrian stakeholders’ participation within NAFS has strengthened their capacities and has continuously succeeded in developing relations amongst them while advocating solidarity and trust amongst each other.
More widely, NAFS has engaged nearly 3500 Syrian, regional and international stakeholders and partners, including Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), policymakers, think tanks, academics, representatives of the UN Country Team and other UN entities, the Office of the Special Envoy (OSE), media, and INGOs, follow and participate in the work and forums.
