ECCHR produces a range of short films, often in cooperation with partners, to accompany its general work as well as to highlight individual cases. The videos range from interviews with those affected by rights violations and testimonials from partner organizations to short event documentaries.
The following films were created over the past few months and can be viewed on ECCHR’s website and YouTube channel.
Accountability for Mass Atrocities in Syria
Deliberate attacks on civilian infrastructure, indiscriminate bombings and the torture and execution of civilians are just some of the crimes committed by almost all conflict parties in Syria since 2011. Syrian activists have been documenting these crimes in order to one day bring those responsible to justice.
Now, the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) and the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung are bringing together survivors of torture and mass atrocities in Syria as well as Syrian lawyers, international activists and legal and political experts to discuss potential avenues for prosecution and the meaning of criminal accountability for the crimes committed in Syria.
