Center for Civil Society and Democracy,

The Center for Civil Society and Democracy (CCSD) is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organization. CCSD seeks to build a stable and just society where peace and respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms prevail. Since being established in 2011, CCSD has worked to build a stronger, more pluralistic civil society by supporting organizations and individuals. CCSD does not endorse violence or aggression in any form or as a means of achieving its goals and objectives. We believe that dialogue and respect for diversity is the optimum way to realize the aspirations of those we work for and with. Accordingly, we consider that democracy is the only alternative to violence and is the best option for achieving justice, equality, and freedom for all Syrian, no matter their gender or religious and ethnic affiliation. In order to promote cohesive and tolerant societies where justice and equality prevail, we seek to promote human rights and to make them the primary and main drivers of the diverse societies which we target through our work. In our work, we adopt a human rights-based approach to women’s rights and gender equality, as CCSD strongly believes that democracy cannot be achieved without equality and gender justice.
