25 prime actors participated in the following:
- Determining the rank of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) according to the amount of its influence on life in Syria. As shown in the chart below, GIZ ranked 45th most influential prime actor.
- Assessing and classifying the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) according to its commitment to inclusive nationalism for Syria (also indicated in the same row by the colored rectangle). Of the 25 prime actors who participated in the assessments, more agreed that GIZ falls under the category of 'Opportunistic'. A prime actor assessed as Opportunistic is seen as willing to build a sovereign, stable, inclusive, and developing Syria, but only when it serves its own interests.
