CONSTITUTION AS A RELIEF FOR CRISIS

A seminal moment in Syria’s recent history is the presentation of a draft constitution that has been written and presented to country’s main opposition leaders and groups. The next step would be subjecting it to a vote in a national referendum.

The draft constitution should be the product of a Syrian constitutional convention held in the country itself. It should involve the participation of various ethnic and religious minority communities. Adopting the constitution would be a relief for the ongoing Syrian crisis, and possibly the only thing that can stop fighting between different militant groups and the government forces.
