Advocacy

RR strives to clarify the complexities of the Syrian conflict to the wider British public and to promote Syrian issues within the British landscape. We have worked with policy makers on both local and national scales to address pertinent issues facing British Syrians, such as airport stops, police visits to homes, closure of Syrians' bank accounts and delayed processing times for asylum applications. RR also cultivates personal relationships with media professionals to influence the framework by which Syria is discussed. We serve as a critical source of information on the Syrian conflict for journalists. One of RR's objectives is to clarify the situation in Syria to the wider UK audience. We do that through organising educational seminars and academic conferences in addition to organising demonstrations and public vigils.

BBC Radio 5 Live Interview on Chemical Attack in Syria

We were interviewed on BBC Radio 5 Live on 5 April to discuss the international response to the chemical weapons attack on the city of Khan Sheikhoun by Assad forces. We highlighted the need for urgent international action yet reminded listeners that the US itself has also been responsible for attacks in recent weeks which led to the civilian deaths.
