About Us

The Center for Civil Society and Democracy in Syria (CCSDS) is a U.S.-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to educate the American public about the efforts of non-violent Syrian civic leaders who are working to strengthen civil society and democracy in Syria, and to provide support to sustainable peace-and-democracy-building activities in Syrian communities. To fulfill this mission, CCSDS partners with different local organizations, particularly those groups participating in the civil society networks established by CCSDS and its partner the Center for Civil Society and Democracy (CCSD).

CCSD was founded in December 2011 by a group of Syrian civil society activists with the aim of supporting sustainable and long term Syrian-led movements for peace, justice and democracy in Syria. CCSD is an independent, non-governmental Syrian non-profit organization with a mission to support and strengthen civil society and democracy and promote the values of freedom, justice and coexistence. CCSD works on empowering Syrian women leadership and participation; civil society capacity development; good governance; peacebuilding, transitional justice, conflict mitigation, and independent media. CCSD’s work takes place in Syria, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI).

CCSDS is an equal opportunities employer and offers a stimulating professional environment and the opportunity to work with a network of dedicated and committed professionals.
