An Online Roundtable on Supporting a Survivor-led Justice Movement

30 Jul 2020
TJ, Syria

In the frame of the project "Enhancing women’s Participation in Decision-Making and Peacebuilding Processes in Syria" funded by the European Union, an online roundtable on Supporting a Survivor-led Justice Movement was organized on 30 July 2020. It was organized by the EuroMed Feminist Initiative in partnership with Legal Action Worldwide (LAW). It gathered Syrian survivors together with key actors who represent survivor movements in conflict-affected and post-conflict regions. They were given the opportunity to hear first-hand about the various approaches, challenges, and benefits of community organizing to pursue justice during and after the Balkans conflict. This roundtable was the first in a series of discussions aimed at cross-regional exchange and peer-to-peer learning on the strategies available for dealing with past violations and international crimes, both at the interpersonal level and at the level of legal and political advocacy.
