Syria Background

Beginning in November 2012, ABA ROLI, with funding from the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Democracy, Rights and Labor, began implementing a program to research and document the experiences of Syrian refugees, with a focus on enhancing the quality, quantity and credibility of information available about human rights abuses occurring inside Syria, and to supplement other groups’ reports and  efforts with qualitative and quantitative findings that impartially and accurately present identified human rights abuses.
