We are an independent network of lawyers, human rights activists, law students and anyone interested in international justice for Syria. The network of Syrian lawyers, law students and human rights defenders was established in January 2016. The network consists of 50 active core members and more than 300 partners and collaborators.
Syria Legal Network-NL is a network that assists Syrian lawyers and human rights activists residing in the Netherlands to settle in Dutch – legal – society and to contribute to international justice for Syria. Our activities focus on the documentation of international crimes and training in international law.
THE INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE PROJECT
The International Justice Project seeks to raise awareness on international justice among the Syrian community in the Netherlands. Our training program aims at familiarizing Syrian lawyers and others with the field of international humanitarian law, international criminal law and related topics. Our documentation program supports organizations and individuals in their efforts to formulate legal responses to international crimes.
Syria Legal Network-NL is a joint initiative of the Foundation Lawyers for Lawyers, the Amsterdam Bar Association, the Nuhanovic Foundation and the University of Amsterdam’s War Reparations Centre which is part of the Amsterdam Center for International Law. Syria Legal Network-NL is administered by the Nuhanovic Foundation and sponsored by Amnesty International Netherlands.
