Update Support Human Rights Activists in Syria #7

By Michael Ader | Communications Officer

Thank you for your continuous support of SJAC’s mission to assist documentation activists worldwide in gathering evidence of war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Throughout this past quarter, SJAC has been developing a new training course for our documentation training platform.

This training will focus on documenting violations of the legal obligations of an occupying power. It will introduce key legal conventions and review the essential types of evidence needed by activists to properly document violations. Importantly, this training will cover violations committed by affiliates of an occupying power which often operate in an administrative grey area.

Concepts covered will include how to document enforced disappearances, forced deportation, forced enlistment, destruction of public or private property, infringement of religious rights, and maintaining competent courts. We hope that this training will enable activists to collect documentation that can serve as admissible evidence in future legal proceedings. 

Initially, this training will be administered to SJAC’s own documentation teams who will assist in adjusting the content, testing its applicability in the field, and eventually adapting it for public release within the first half of 2024.
