Rami Nakhla, also known by his alias Malath Aumran, is a long time democratic advocate who works on political reform in Syria and the Middle East since the mid-2000s. In 2012 and due to the increased dominance of Islamic radicals in the Syrian uprising, Rami resigned from all his political positions to focus on a nonpartisan pursuit of peace and democracy in Syria. Currently, he is working with tech companies to leverage disruptive new technologies and channel them toward positive social impact.
Rami has played a prominent role in the leadership of the Syrian democratic movement, serving as a spokesperson for the Local Coordination Committees (LCC) of Syria and as a founding member of the Syrian National Council. He previously served as Program Specialist at the US Institute of Peace, coordinating “The Day After” (TDA) project on the institute’s behalf. The Project produced a transition roadmap for post-conflict Syria. He later became TDA’s Executive Director working to implement the transition plan.
