Save Syrian Schools Public Hearing


Today, starting at 9:30 am, Geneva time (CET), we listened to the experiences of Syrians affected by attacks on schools. The Save Syrian Schools project presented the results of its one-year-long research—an unprecedented collaboration of 10 Syrian human rights organizations and the ICTJ.

Syrian victims will share their experiences in a public hearing-style event examining the impact of the destruction of schools before a global audience that includes activists, policy makers, international organizations, and more.

The Panel of Conscience was presided by:

Navanethem “Navi” Pillay, former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights
Pablo De Greiff, UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion of truth, justice, reparation and guarantees of non-recurrence
David Tolbert, President of the International Center for Transitional Justice
