The Syrian Expert House is an initiative launched by the Syrian Center for Political and Strategic Studies to analyze and study the transitional period in Syria. The Syrian Expert House is a combined group of approximately three hundred human rights activists, academics, judges, lawyers, doctors, opposition politicians, defected government officials, defected military officers, members of local revolutionary councils, and commanders of the armed opposition who are committed to holding periodic meetings to build a final vision of the transitional period and produce considered, deliberate recommendations for the political, social, economic, military, and security aspects of the future of Syria.
The Syrian Expert House consists of six thematic working groups:
- Constitutional Reform and the Rule of Law
- Political and Administrative Reform
- Electoral Reform and Political Parties Law
- Security Sector Reform
- Economic Reform
- Transitional Justice and National Reconciliation
The gatherings of these working groups resulted in the publishing of Syria Transition Roadmap, an exhaustively researched document detailing the Syrian Expert House’s final vision for the post-Assad Syrian transition.
