In Cairo, TDA, together with the Arab Forum for Alternatives, convened a group of Syrian opposition politicians, activists, researchers, and diaspora leaders to discuss the challenges faced in the Syrian transitional phase and how to prevent further bloodshed in the country.

Naguib Ghadban, Syrian opposition figure and a member of the executive committee of The Day After project, said that the idea of the project came from following the Arab Spring revolution, in which the Arab leaders tried to maintain their seats by claiming there are no other alternatives for their rule.

“We decided to counter this stereotype by founding this report, which was conducted by figures representing all the religious, ethnic and ideological groups in Syria. Our report seeks to create a new social contract between the new Syrian nation and its citizens, where the importance of equality and rule of law shall persist,” said Ghadban.
