The Voices of Syria project is an undertaking by the Middle East Institute, in partnership with Syrian civil society, to better inform the general public and to guide policymakers toward a more holistic view of the situation in Syria by leveraging the voices of the unheard and their hopes and aspirations. In this series of short videos, Syrians reflect on issues of reconciliation and justice, and the plight of Syria’s women and children after years of war.
