Update Support Human Rights Activists in Syria #5

By Michael Ader | Communications Coordinator

SJAC made significant progress over the last quarter to develop new training resources for Syrian documentation activists. Thanks to our donors, we launch a new and improved documentation training page. The new platform includes courses on international humanitarian law, violations documentation, and transitional justice. 

This recent update combines new and old courses into comprehensive modules that help activists better understand each lesson. Additionally, an improved user interface helps guide users through each module.

Additionally, SJAC streamlined the certificate request process so activists can easily receive certifications showing successful completion of each course. Since launching the platform in May, two activists have earned certificates, with several more actively working on completing all course requirements.  

New courses added to the platform cover topics like transitional justice and the role of civil societies in memorialization, victim compensation, and institutional reform. Although this platform was originally designed to teach the basics of documentation collection, additional courses help activists understand the role of documentation in larger peacebuilding efforts. 

SJAC will continue to improve its training platform and develop new courses to expand the capacity of activists documenting the Syrian conflict and conflicts across the region.
