Syria Programs

Access to Justice and Human Rights

ABA ROLI conducted nearly 900 interviews with randomly selected Syrian refugees currently living in Jordan and Lebanon in order to document human rights violations and to impartially and accurately present identified categories of violations occurring inside Syria, from a quantitative and qualitative perspective. All respondents had fled their homes in Syria starting in March 2011, when the conflict there began.

In addition to documenting individual instances of human rights- and humanitarian-law violations, the report details respondent’s allegations about who perpetrated the abuses, which included Syrian government forces and their affiliates and anti-regime armed groups. The full report can be found here
