SJAC

Mission of the organization

THE SYRIA JUSTICE AND ACCOUNTABILITY CENTRE (SJAC) STRIVES TO PREVENT IMPUNITY, PROMOTE REDRESS, AND FACILITATE PRINCIPLED REFORM. SJAC WORKS TO ENSURE THAT HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS IN SYRIA ARE COMPREHENSIVELY DOCUMENTED AND PRESERVED FOR USE IN TRANSITIONAL JUSTICE AND PEACE-BUILDING. SJAC COLLECTS DOCUMENTATION OF VIOLATIONS FROM ALL AVAILABLE SOURCES, STORES IT IN A SECURE DATABASE, CATALOGUES IT ACCORDING TO HUMAN RIGHTS STANDARDS, AND ANALYZES IT USING LEGAL EXPERTISE AND BIG DATA METHODOLOGIES. SJAC ALSO SUPPORTS DOCUMENTERS INSIDE SYRIA, PROVIDING THEM WITH RESOURCES AND TECHNICAL GUIDANCE, AND COORDINATES WITH OTHER ACTORS WORKING TOWARD SIMILAR AIMS: A SYRIA DEFINED BY JUSTICE, RESPECT FOR HUMAN RIGHTS, AND RULE OF LAW.
