Statement on the Passing of Dr. Bassma Kodmani
The Institute for Integrated Transitions (IFIT) deeply regrets to inform friends, colleagues, and partners of the tragic passing of Dr. Bassma Kodmani earlier today. The news is shared with a profound sense of loss and sorrow.
Bassma was not only a respected intellectual, academic, Middle East expert and women’s rights advocate, but also a renowned defender of a peaceful and democratic Syria.
At IFIT, she served with great dedication and honour for many years, both as a member of our International Advisory Council and as one of the founders of the Syria Resource Group.
The IFIT community extends its deepest condolences to Bassma’s family and friends, the members of the Syria Resource Group and all Syrians for this profound loss.
