Change in CSSR implementing partnership structure

From its inception in 2016, the Civil Society Support Room (CSSR) was jointly implemented with the Swiss Peace Foundation (swisspeace) and NOREF Norwegian Centre for Conflict Resolution (NOREF), two organisations with long-standing expertise on peacebuilding and process support, among others. From 1st November 2023 onwards, the CSSR will be implemented with Swisspeace only.

OSE-Syria thanks NOREF for its invaluable contribution and support to the CSSR since its start in 2016. OSE-Syria is also extremely grateful to the generous support of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. OSE-Syria continues to believe in the strategic importance of the CSSR as an essential participatory and inclusive space for Syrian civil society in the UN-facilitated political process established by UNSCR 2254.
