    „Das Recht, Rechte zu haben“: Die Dokumentation von Identität im syrischen Bürgerkrieg

    Während des Bürgerkriegs in Syrien stellten verschiedene Akteure legale Identitätsdokumente aus. Die Nachteile dieses Geflechts ineinandergreifender Dokumente für die Eltern-, Erb- und Eigentumsrechte der Menschen, insbesondere von Frauen, werden in diesem GIGA Focus Nahost analysiert.

    Legal Identity and Rebel Governance: A Comparative Perspective on Lived Consequence of Contested Sovereignty

    Mit Beiträgen von verschiedenen Akteur:innen weist der Sammelband die Vorstellung zurück, dass Staatenlosigkeit ein Problem ist. Er argumentiert, dass die Realität der Staatenlosigkeit dazu beiträgt, eine grundlegendere Herausforderung aufzudecken: das Problem der Staatsbürgerschaft.

    Forschungsprojekt | 01.09.2020 - 31.08.2022

    Syria’s “Post-war” Landscape

    The architecture of “post-conflict” Syria is intrinsically linked to war dynamics, making it far from a tabula rasa but replete with a range of competing forms of authority. This project investigates the changing nature of the Syrian state and its interactions with non-state actors such as militia leaders, economic elites, tribal leaders, international organisations and investors. It focuses on three topics: local security providers and governance; legal identity; housing, land and property rights.

    „If there is a ceasefire, people know the devil is coming“

    Die Folgen von Waffenstillständen sind nicht unbedingt positiv. Inwiefern Forschung und Erfahrungen aus Syrien praktische Strategien für die Verhandlung von Waffenstillständen in der Ukraine liefern können, diskutieren renommierte Vertreter:innen aus Forschung und Praxis in diesem GIGA Talk.

    Citizenship constellations in Syria

    This talk begins to rectify this by adding to scholarship on citizenship and rebel governance to question how non-state actors in Syria are going about establishing legal identity; what non-state issued documents this results in; and, the interplay between Syrian state and non-state based documentation systems.
