About us

Adalaty Centre is an independent organisation led by Syrian women that seeks to elevate their voices and experiences to impact and lead on the understanding and delivery of justice (in all its forms) in Syria. 

The centre aims to create a space in which diverse women contribute to public discourse and to knowledge production through the lens of their individual and collective experiences for the purpose of strengthening awareness of human rights, women’s rights, and democracy within Syrian society; setting priorities for a future Syria that is built upon sustainable and just peace; and preserving women’s narratives of the Syrian struggle for democracy since the outbreak of the 2011 revolution.



Our Story

The idea behind Adalaty Centre emerged from a perceived lack of female voice and authorship discussing gendered dimensions of justice and democracy within the Syrian context, as well as a  perceived gap in the number of women who participate at strategic or decision-making levels within such processes. We believe that the participation of Syrian women is essential to building an integrated society premised upon democracy and respect for human dignity. 



Our Vision

A Syrian society built upon the principles of human rights, equal citizenship, justice, and democracy in which women play a real and active role in public affairs.
