"The Aleppo Project" at the Central European University's Center for Conflict, Negotiation and Recovery (CCNR) aims to capture information about the past of the Syrian city, document life in the city, analyze the conflict that is destroying it, and help residents plan for the future.

Such entries can be creative or simply documents, and can include, photo essays, before and after war price lists, descriptions of how one conducts day-to-day chores (such as traveling from one side of the city to the other or buying groceries) etc.
• Academic articles and research papers in various disciplines, such as urban planning and architecture, tangible and intangible (cultural) heritage, civil administration, economics, development, and governance
• (Policy) recommendations for Aleppo now and post-conflict
• Views regarding how city planning and management was before the conflict and now
