Building a Progressive Democracy in the Middle East: The Future of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria

Westminster Debate

20 February 2019

Houses of Parliament

Join the Centre for Kurdish Progress for a discussion with leader of the Syrian Democratic Council Ilham Ahmed, iCommittee Room 10, the House of Commons on Wednesday, 20th February 2019 from 7:00-9:00pm

The event will kindly be hosted and chaired by LLoyd Russell-Moyle, Labour Co-operative MP for Brighton Kemptown.

Ilham Ahmed is Syria’s most prominent Kurdish politician, heading the executive committee of the Syrian Democratic Council (SDC). The SDC forms the basis for the Autonomous Administration of North and East of Syria (commonly referred to as Rojava) and functions as the political-wing of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), the multi-ethnic alliance that, with the support of the international coalition, has been leading the fight against the Islamic State (ISIS).

With ISIS on the brink of a territorial defeat In Syria, the SDF now controls as much 30 percent of the country. However, the future of the autonomous administration and its radical vision of grassroots democracy remains in doubt amid President Trump’s apparent decision to end US support for the SDF and the continued threat of a Turkish military intervention

Having led recent delegations to both Washington and Damascus, Ms Ahmed is uniquely placed to offer insight into a decisive moment for Syria and the region.
