The corruption of the Syrian regime was one of the reasons why the revolution started in 2011. However, more than eleven years later, even among the broader opposition, there is a perception that it does not always consistently pursue corruption and profit-making within its own ranks.
The aim of this workshop was to raise awareness of what corruption is, on the one hand, and, on the other hand, to develop ideas on how to successfully fight corrupt structures on the legal level and beyond in the future Syria.
The participants were Syrian civil society activists including political activists, women's rights activists and academics.
After developing an anti-corruption strategy within the game, participants stepped out of their roles and started a process of guided reflection by answering the questions of what resources are needed to implement this strategy, who are the stakeholders needed to realize this strategy, and how can its success be measured.
