The de-escalation zone agreement has sparked controversy and created a stark division between Syrian supporters and opponents, with many Syrians expressing their concern about its consequences. The agreement has successfully reduced violence in the zones, though not completely halting it, yet some important unanswered questions include: How do Syrians view this agreement? To what extent has the agreement contributed to reducing violence in their areas? What do they hope for in the future? In order to answer these questions the Syrian Civic Platform (SCP) conducted a survey of Syrians living inside and outside of the de-escalation zones. Their responses are covered in this report, and it is important that they are taken into account by national and international decision-makers. Doing so will strengthen efforts for a comprehensive political solution for Syria, and thus improve conditions for stability and sustainable peace.
