Abstract:

This report documents these restrictions by examining the legal environment in which activists operate and the government practices to which they are subject. It is based on extensive interviews with representatives of all of the major Syrian human rights groups, independent lawyers, and members of the international diplomatic community in Damascus. The report concludes that the most serious barrier to the rights and freedoms of Syria's human rights community lies in the role of the powerful security services, which routinely harass human rights groups and scrutinize their leaders, activities, and funding.
