The Syria Justice and Accountability Centre (SJAC) is a multi-laterally supported organisation that will collect, collate, receive, process, analyse, and securely store information, evidence, documentation and other materials relating to violations of human rights and humanitarian law in Syria. The SJAC will serve as a coordinating mechanism for organisations and individuals that are already engaged in the documentation of human rights abuses, providing an electronic repository for information as well as identifying and addressing crucial gaps. The purpose of the SJAC’s analyses is to identify patterns of events, crimes, and capture a historical record of victims’ experiences in view of a broad range of future accountability and transitional justice processes.
