The purpose of this report is to map and analyse current initiatives working to collect information and evidence for future accountability mechanisms in Syria and to evaluate these efforts to assist the Syrian Justice and Accountability Centre (SJAC) in determining strategic and organisational priorities.

The goal of the SJAC is to promote peaceful reconciliation and transitional processes in Syria. To this end, the SJAC is working to gather documentation of violations of international criminal, humanitarian, and human rights law by all parties to the conflict in Syria to collect and preserve evidence for use in future accountability and reconciliation efforts related to the conflict in Syria. These transitional justice mechanisms may include national or international criminal proceedings, reparations hearings, or truth and reconciliation commissions.

As part of its work to support SJAC, the Public International Law & Policy Group (PILPG) has prepared this report to map and assess efforts to document information on violations of international criminal, humanitarian, and human rights law in the Syrian conflict. The Report seeks to identify potential partners working toward accountability, as well as address current challenges that could affect future accountability measures.
