The self-administration in north and east Syria was founded on the principles of gender equality, ethnic and religious tolerance, sustainable ecology, and legal self-defense. There are many different ethnicities and religious groups living together peacefully in North Syria, including Kurds, Syriacs-Assyrians, Arabs, Armenians; Muslims, Christians, Yezidis, and more.

The people of the region have implemented a new democratic system of government and created an autonomous rule model, and proposed as a solution for the rest of the Syrian regions, called the Democratic Self-Administration, designed to protect and support human rights for all peoples living in north and east Syria.

The government works from the bottom up with percentage-based systems of representation for both minorities and gender, ensuring that all people at every level of society are always represented in decision making processes.
