Regional Consultations – Beirut

Executive Summary

Regional Consultations in Beirut from 5 to 6 March 2020 with 32 participants based in Lebanon and Syria reviewed the CSSR’s roles, vision and mission; discussed its underpinning civic and societal values; discussed whether and how to link the CSSR to the political process, which is not limited to the Constitutional Committee; and explored ways to share the CSSR’s outputs with the widest possible spectrum of civil society. 

Some additional proposals covered humanitarian issues, including the detainees, abductees and forcibly disappeared persons’ files, and the challenges faced by women, children and people with special needs.
