The European Endowment for Democracy met with Syrian Human Rights defenders, visiting Brussels upon invitation of the Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Network. On the eve of international Democracy Day, the Syrians and their partners described the greatest challenges for democracy activists working in and for Syria. A Syrian representative of the group described their situation:[[[[[[“As Syrian Human Rights groups working in the field, we face immense challenges but have very limited access to international funding because of the lack of information, language barrier and bureaucracy … The situation in Syria can dramatically change over a short period, so it is a major challenge if we have to wait for months and months for a project to receive support.]]]]]”[[[[[Beyond funding issues, the participants also underlined the many other challenges they are faced with on a daily basis, such as the growing gender-based violence, problems of IT security and the difficulty to document violations in a professional manner. Peter Sondergaard, Head of Programmes at the European Endowment for Democracy, described how EED can support them and other democracy activists.]]]]] [[[[[He assured them:“We have a mandate to work in a flexible and rapid way. We can support you even if your group is not registered and we accept requests in Arabic - all to make your lives easier.”]]]]]
