The Violations Documentation Center is an independent civil society organisation founded by several Syrian activists at the start of the Syrian revolution. VDC’s goal is to record the names of all people killed, detained and victims of enforced disappearances as a result of the violence in Syria. The VDC documents the Syrian regime’s casualties as well as violations committed by other armed groups. The VDC obtains its information from its own network of trusted activists in Syria, witness and relative accounts, medical records and independent citizen journalists. The organisation publishes periodical statistical reports of killings in Syria online.
