About

Syria from Within is a policy initiative by the Middle East and North Africa Programme at Chatham House that aims to offer fresh, ground-based analysis on dynamics inside Syria as they relate to armed groups, state and non-state institutions and people, and the relationships between those three actors in the context of the Syrian conflict. The initiative also provides a platform for Syrian experts and organizations from diverse backgrounds to help make their voices heard in policy circles in the West, and aims to be the first port of call for policymakers seeking timely insights and analysis on developments inside Syria.

The project builds on the work done at Chatham House through the Syria and Its Neighbours policy initiative that wrapped up in Spring 2017, and whose outputs continue to be available through this microsite.
